What is medical travel insurance?

Medical travel insurance can give you the confidence you need to step foot on a plane again and enjoy the holiday you deserve when it is safe to travel.

Unlike some insurers, we consider all pre-existing medical conditions for travel insurance and with us, there’s no upper age limit. So, with the right health travel insurance in place, you can go on holiday knowing should the unexpected happen, we’ll always be there if you need us.

Travel insurance with medical conditions cover can protect you for the things a regular travel insurance policy would, as well as claims caused by pre-existing conditions that have been declared and covered.

Why do I need travel insurance with medical conditions?

Without travel insurance for existing medical conditions you would have to pay for any costs, such as emergency treatment, relating to pre-existing conditions yourself. 

Emergency medical treatment can be costly. The USA is the most expensive country to have a medical emergency in. The average cost of medical treatment comes in at £9,941!✝

Health travel insurance with COVID-19 cover

Medical travel insurance that covers coronavirus means you can embrace your next adventure abroad, even during the pandemic if the FCDO says it’s safe to travel to your destination. 

Our Superior-rated COVID-19 cover is included with all new policies, and includes generous cancellation cover and emergency medical expenses during your holiday✝✝.

What if we can’t cover your pre-existing conditions?

We can cover most medical conditions. But if we can’t cover you, you may find the Money & Pensions Service directory helpful. They list specialist medical insurance providers – of which we are a listed provider. The directory can be found online, or by calling 0800 138 7777.
