Why do I need travel insurance for Egypt?

You’ll be covered for medical treatment, new flights home or lost luggage.

These problems occur more often than you might think: 1 in 20 people needed to make claims on their Annual Travel Insurance in 2017**.

We think travel insurance is worth doing right.

No. An EHIC is only accepted in relevant European countries. Any medical treatment will have to be paid for. This can be very expensive, so it’s essential to buy good travel insurance before you set out.

Travel insurance to Egypt with pre-existing medical conditions

If you buy your travel insurance with us, we’ll ask you to complete a medical screening as part of the process.

The medical screening isn’t a long winded exam, but a set of straight-forward multiple choice questions designed for us to understand how your medical conditions affect you.

If you have a medical condition and it’s not included in your policy, it will mean that in the event of a claim you are not actually covered. So it’s really important that the answers you give us are as accurate and complete as possible.

What sort of questions will I be asked?

It will depend on your personal health circumstances, but these are the sort of things you’ll be asked:

  • How long have you had this medical condition?
  • Have you recently been treated with surgery?
  • Do you take regular medication for this?

It may be a good idea to have details of your medical condition on hand for you to refer to during the process.

You can take the screening process online, or if you prefer you can do it over the phone with one of our travel insurance specialists if you prefer.

If I’ve already bought my travel insurance policy, can I still make changes to it?

We need you to tell us of any changes in your medical or travel situation as soon as possible, so that you’re taking a fully valid policy on your trip.

So whether you’re updating us about a medical conditions or medication, or if you plan on adding optional extras to your policy, please do speak to us and we’ll see if we can increase the coverage where necessary.

Please be aware: while we can increase your policy coverage, we can’t reduce coverage in return for a partial refund. So do check that you’re happy with the level of cover when you buy your policy.

What if I have a medical emergency in Egypt?

You or someone with you should dial 123 for an ambulance. As soon as soon as you are referred to a medical facility for your emergency treatment, you should contact us. We will ensure you are getting the treatment you need and liaise with doctors on your behalf if needs be. Our UK-based emergency line works 24-hours a day. You can even reverse the charges if you need to.

Can I be covered for terrorist acts?

Sometimes, the reason for not being able to follow through with your holiday can unfortunately be because of terrorism. It’s a scary and unwanted thought, but one that we can help with.
To be covered for terrorist acts where the Government issues guidance against travel, our Travel Disruption optional extra will help you.
There are also times when the Government acknowledges and declares an act of terrorism, but has not yet issued advice on travel. When you’re due to travel this can be a tense time, especially if you believe you could be in danger.

With our optional Terrorism Cancellation Cover, you’ll be covered if:

  • The event is officially declared*** as an act of terrorism.
  • The event occured within 42 days of your date of travel.
  • You’re planning on staying within a 40 miles radius of the event’s location.

What if I need to make a claim?

It’s simple. You just phone the number on your travel insurance policy, explain things to us, and so long as your problem is covered we’ll sort it as quickly as we can. You’ll be pleased to know that 98% of our customers’ claims get processed within 5 working days****.
