Specialist travel and holiday insurance if you have been diagnosed with sickle cell anaemia

Travel and holiday insurance with anaemia

It's estimated that there are between 12,500 and 15,000 people with sickle cell disease in the UK. Sickle cell anaemia is an inherited blood disorder, which means there aren’t enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body. This can cause many symptoms, including tiredness and shortness of breath. Although sickle cell disease is a serious and lifelong condition, there are many ways to help treat and manage sickle cell disease.


The severity of the condition varies between individuals but the majority of people with sickle cell anaemia lead very happy and normal lives, which means that travelling with sickle cell is should be easy and your insurance should be too! We require you to complete a medical screening, either online or over the phone, which will allow us to assess the risk of your medical condition and offer a competitive insurance premium. We will always endeavour to find a suitable insurance policy, with cover available for single trips, annual multi trips and cruises. Find out more in our policy wording
