Travel insurance protection for asthma
Travel insurance from Total Travel Protection provides travel insurance protection for you and your holiday. Pre-existing medical conditions, including asthma can be fully covered once you have declared them to us.
Our policies include cover for emergency medical expenses and repatriation (getting you home) up to £10 million per person whilst you are abroad, as well as access to our 24-hour emergency medical assistance team by phone, from wherever you are in the world.
Cover is also available for mobility aids, prescription medication, cancellation, personal possessions, legal expenses, personal liability and much more.
Cover for prescription inhalers and asthma medication
Having asthma may mean you need to carry prescription medication, such as inhalers or asthma pumps, with you on holiday, which could be expensive to replace if they are lost or stolen. Not a problem, our travel insurance policies cover loss of medication up to £300 per person.

Single trip insurance
We cover single trips up to 94 days in duration to any destination in the world (providing the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office is not advising against non-essential travel).
For cover to be valid your trip must start and finish in the UK and cover must be in place before you leave home.
Ocean and river cruises are covered as standard on all travel insurance policies from Total Travel Protection, and you don’t need to tell us that you are going on a cruise.
Make sure you declare your asthma and any other medical conditions when you buy your policy, as emergency medical treatment onboard ship, or airlifting to hospital, would work out very expensive if you are not fully covered.
We can cover individual cruise holidays up to 94 days in duration; remember to list all the countries you will be visiting when you buy a policy.

Asthma Travel Insurance FAQ
What types of asthma can you cover?
We can cover all types of asthma up to a high level of severity, including allergic asthma, seasonal asthma, occupational asthma, non-allergic asthma and exercise induced asthma.
Why do I need to declare my asthma when I buy travel insurance?
It is important to declare asthma and any other medical conditions you may have when you buy travel insurance so that you will have appropriate cover for emergency medical treatment abroad if you need it, as well as cancellation if you become unwell before your holiday.
If you become ill due to a pre-existing medical condition, such as asthma, that you had not declared on your policy, you would not be covered by your travel insurance and your claim could be declined or only partially paid.
How do I declare my asthma when I get a quotation?
When you get a travel insurance quotation, whether online or by phone, you will be given the opportunity to declare all your pre-existing medical conditions, including asthma.
Once you tell us that you have asthma you will be asked a short series of multiple-choice questions, such as how many medicines you have prescribed by your doctor and if you have had any unplanned hospital admissions for your asthma in the last year.
This will give us an idea of how stable and well managed your asthma is and therefore the risk of you needing emergency treatment whilst you are away.
Our medical screening only takes a few minutes and can be done online or by phone.
