Prioritise getting Travel Insurance for your COPD so that you can enjoy planning the rest of your dream holiday

Living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be challenging. While this may be the case, it is important to know that you aren’t alone; COPD affects 1.2 million people in the UK, and that number is growing.

It’s important to remember that most medical conditions, including COPD, are linked to other conditions including chest infections and pneumonia, so if you developed one of these and had not declared COPD, you would not be covered. 

 Finding Travel Insurance that covers you if a COPD-related medical emergency were to happen may give you the peace of mind needed to relax on holiday. Whether you’re a culture seeker or a sun-seeker, you don’t have to let your COPD stop you from living your life to the fullest.

When answering the medical screening questions, try to be as truthful and accurate as possible. After completing the questions, we can thoroughly assess our  market to see which Travel Insurance policy would be a good fit for your pre-existing medical condition. 

Each case of COPD is unique to the individual, so you need to find a Travel Insurance policy that meets your needs. Knowing that your Travel Insurance covers you may put your mind at ease if you have emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or chronic obstructive airway disease. 

Our online medical screening process makes it quick and easy to find Travel Insurance for your COPD. If you prefer to speak with someone over the phone, please contact one of our specialist Travel Insurance consultants. We are experienced in searching the market to help you find Travel Insurance that covers your COPD, and we are happy to help. 

Travelling with COPD does not need to be stressful. Having the Travel Insurance you need can help you unwind, travel with confidence and make the most of your holiday.
