This can be the case when trying to organise travel insurance for your well deserved holiday. Some insurers don’t understand the condition and the varying levels of severity to it. We understand Cystic Fibrosis and the medical conditions caused by it, such as diabetes, chest complaints, liver complications and Arthritis.

Insurancewith has up to £5 million of medical cover and repatriation cover for any duration of your trip. What’s more our travel insurance policy will be automatically extended free of charge should you be unable to travel home as planned due to a medical emergency abroad.
Medical treatment abroad varies in cost as well as in standard. It is a misconception that cost and quality of care go hand in hand, but this is just not the case. Some clinics abroad charge outrageous amounts for standard medical treatment and some even administer unnecessary and potentially problematic treatment – all just for commercial advantage. Our Doctor led worldwide 24 hour emergency assistance service is there to prevent this happening. In the event of an emergency our chief medical officer will liaise with the treating Doctor and your specialist in the UK to ensure you receive the right treatment at the right place. We understand that being on holiday with Cystic Fibrosis and needing medical treatment abroad can be distressing. That’s why our medical assistance team can also help to ensure your accommodation and travel arrangements are taken care of as well as the medical treatment.
We must stress that it is very important to seek medical advise before travelling and get confirmation that you are fit to travel prior to booking your holiday. Flying with cystic fibrosis can present a number of risks and it is important that you treating doctor is happy with your plans. Recent studies in Europe have revealed that there are risks associated with low levels of oxygen in the blood of Cystic Fibrosis sufferers when flying at high altitude. This can cause problems with breathing in cystic Fibrosis sufferers. However, the same research also found that cystic fibrosis sufferers travelling by air can tolerate this fluctuation for several hours. Which means there is no automatic reason that the joys of far-flung adventures can not be available to you.
