Travelling with asthma
If you have severe asthma and require a nebuliser we advise that you contact the airline or travel provider before travelling to make the necessary arrangements, ensuring one is available during your trip.
When travelling, we recommend that you carry your inhaler and labelled prescribed medication in your hand luggage so it is readily available and always carry more than the required amount of medication for your trip in case of unexpected delays.
What is asthma?
Asthma is a very common and long term condition that can cause shortness of breath or breathlessness, coughing, wheezing and tightness of the chest.
Asthma is believed to be hereditary and is caused when the bronchi, which carry air to and from the lungs, become inflamed due to them being over sensitive.
When asthma sufferers come into contact with something that irritates their lungs, a trigger such as pollen, animal fur, exercise or cigarette smoke, the airway becomes narrow, the muscles surrounding them tighten and there is an increase in the production of phlegm.
Could you save money by buying an annual policy?
If you are planning a number of trips over the next 12 months, an annual multi-trip policy could save you time and money, enabling unlimited travel during a 12 month period.
Having an annual policy will give you added peace of mind and flexibility knowing you are covered whenever you wish to travel. Annual travel insurance
