What is long stay travel insurance?

When you’re planning a long trip, you’ll need travel insurance that can cover your whole holiday.

Long stay travel insurance is cover for a longer term trip – usually for holidays where you’ll be away between three and 18 months.

If your holiday is up to three months you’ll be covered by our Single Trip policy with no upper age limit for global travel.

Should I declare my pre-existing medical conditions on my travel insurance?

You can declare your medical conditions through our online medical screening process, which is a straightforward set of questions for us to understand how your medical condition affects you. Or, if you prefer, you can complete the medical screening over the phone.

It’s important that all pre-existing conditions are declared on your policy.

This will avoid large medical bills if you need treatment in another country. Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions may affect the validity of your policy should you need to claim.
