Asthma Travel Insurance
Asthma is a common condition, which can be easily controlled; however this does not mean that you should not declare it to your travel insurance provider. Even if you only need to use your inhaler once a year you should fully declare your condition. If your asthma is well controlled then in the majority of cases you will not pay any additional premiums to add your condition on your asthma travel insurance policy.
