Affordable air embolism travel insurance from World First

If you've had an air or gas embolism in the past, it can be tough finding good travel insurance that's affordable. Not with us. We're medical travel insurance specialists and can give you comprehensive cover at a price that's fair. Even if your embolism caused complications that have left you with long-term damage, it needn't affect your travel insurance. You'll get the same policy benefits as we give to the thousands of other travellers that insure with us every day.

We offer a choice of policies with each offering a different level of cover depending on your needs. They all include trip cancellation and curtailment protection, medical cover and access to 24/7 emergency medical assistance. Our policies also offer up to £10 million in medical expenses alone!

So, if you'd like to discuss a travel insurance policy in more detail, please call us on 0345 90 80 161. Or, if you are in a hurry, you can get an instant quote online with our confidential medical screening.


"Brilliant Company"

"I have used world first for a number of years and find their web site easy to use even though I have medical conditions to declare for my husband. The insurance is very reasonably priced. I can also reassure people that their claims procedure is fast and efficient. I was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and had to cancel a holiday I can't praise the staff enough they were excellent and my can in was processed quickly. Now I'm able to travel again I have just taken out another annual policy I wouldn't use any other company."
