About this group
For sufferers of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) the thought of moving far at all can seem a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t mean that the healing properties of a relaxing holiday should be beyond their reach.
In fact, as salt-caves are commonly used in the treatment of COPD, the healing properties of fresh sea air could be extremely beneficial.
We’ve created European travel insurance for people with COPD. You can see a price in seconds without having to answer any questions about your condition.
If your doctor is happy for you to travel we can cover any condition, as long as you do not have a terminal prognosis of under 6 months.
Our Urgent Medical Travel Insurance policy is designed to cover up to £500,000 of costs for medical treatment that can’t wait until you get home. It does not cover things like baggage or cancellation.
Some insurers will not offer people with severe COPD travel cover and others will make people with medical conditions answer dozens of time-consuming and impersonal questions.
We’ve created a fairer policy that allows you to see a price for any condition after 4 questions. If you’re happy with it we then ask if you’ve checked with your doctor that they believe you’re fit to travel. If they give you the green light then we can cover you for travel in Europe.
We can cover people undergoing tests for COPD, treatment or those who have an undiagnosed condition. And we offer up to £5,000 for a loved one to travel out to be with you if you need treatment or cover some of their costs if they are travelling with you.
The policy includes access to a 24/7 emergency helpline in case you need treatment while abroad.
