Travel insurance for those with pre-existing medical conditions

The price of a travel insurance policy is based on a number of factors but if you have pre existing medical conditions this could increase the risk and as a consequence we need to know about it.

However our approach we feel is better than most because were only interested in you declaring serious medical conditions which could cause you to cancel a holiday pre departure or require you to make a hospital visit abroad. We define serious conditions as  conditions that have occurred in the 12 months and include such things as lung conditions (not mild asthma controlled by no more than two medications including inhalers), heart conditions(including angina) or cancer.

If you have been seen by a specialist clinic or hospital in the last 12 months for tests, treatments or investigations then will need to chat to you as well.

 

As a company we use a number of insurers and they each have different approaches to medical screening. In the main their approaches have improved and we have amongst our stable of product, insurers who will cover in excess of a 1,000 medical conditions.

Our approach has always been to offer the traveller the choice when it comes to travel insurance. Following a simple quote stage where we determine your needs, the policy options are laid out on screen in such a way that you can easily see what is covered and more importantly whats not covered under each policy.

Customers who are interested in the most cost effective options have the ability to further reduce the policy prices by by removing elements such as baggage and cancellation cover and increasing the excesses.
