Hydrocephalus Travel Insurance

Able2Travel Hydrocephalus Travel Insurance

Hydrocephalus is a build-up of fluid on the brain. This excess fluid puts pressure on the brain which in extreme circumstances can lead to brain damage and if left untreated, can be life threatening.

 There are three types of Hydrocephalus:

  • Congenital Hydrocephalus - hydrocephalus that is present at birth.
  • Acquired Hydrocephalus – hydrocephalus that develops after birth.
  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus – develops in older people.

Whilst  hydrocephalus can often be treated and managed by surgical procedures, this condition shouldn’t be a reason to give up your passion for travel and exploring the world. You may have had problems finding suitable and extensive travel insurance protection in the past for Hydrocephalus, but Able2Travel Travel Insurance may be able to help where others have said ‘no’ in the past.

Are You Looking for Travel Insurance While On A Waiting List?

If you’re currently on a waiting list for treatment or surgery for a diagnosed medical condition, this doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t or shouldn’t travel. Here at Able2Travel, there’s a strong possibility that we may be able to find you a Travel Insurance solution, so you can travel with peace of mind while on a waiting list.

We may even be able to find you cover just in case you have to cancel or end your holiday early, due to a change of date for your treatment or surgery, which many other insurance providers simply can’t offer.
