Living with cystic fibrosis can be challenging and tiresome, despite the fact that medical advancement has brought living conditions a long way since the 1950s. Life expectancy has been increased dramatically and we have a much better understanding of the condition. Unfortunately, cystic fibrosis sufferers can still struggle with daily tasks and the health impact that cystic fibrosis brings.
Being medical travel insurance specialists means we put a lot of time and effort into understanding cystic fibrosis. We provide travel insurance for cystic fibrosis on a daily basis, to hundreds of people a year! At Get Going we believe it’s important to provide travel insurance that is catered for cystic fibrosis to ensure that the traveller is fully covered in case of a medical emergency.

Tips for travelling with Cystic fibrosis
Take out the correct travel insurance! Travel insurance is essential for everyone but when travelling with a medical condition, it’s likely you’ll feel more comfortable with the knowledge that you have emergency medical assistance at the press of a button. Declare your condition during your quote and make sure you take out travel insurance for cystic fibrosis. It’s important to declare your full medical history to avoid your claim being denied in the event of a medical emergency.
Since you’ll be taking medication with you, make sure you stock up a week or so before you go. There is a lot of planning involved in travelling, best not to leave it to a last-minute rush.
When you stock up for your trip, be sure to request emergency exacerbation medication on hand. Travelling, especially flying, can be stressful on the body. Packing antibiotics just in case won’t be something you regret.
You should make sure to pack all the medication you need into your hand luggage. Occasionally luggage will get lost or stolen. Get Going does offer cover for luggage, as well as emergency prescription medication, but you may not want to run the risk of being without it.
When you arrive at the airport you can ask to pre-board. It is very unlikely an airline will deny you the right but just in case, it might be worth contacting them before you travel and checking their protocol.
Most importantly, relax. Holidays are all about enjoying yourself and having new experiences. Try your best to relax and enjoy your time away.
