Why do I need travel insurance for anxiety?

It’s important that you tell us about any pre-existing medical conditions you’ve had symptoms, treatment or investigations for – including anxiety – in the past two years.

The cost of emergency medical treatment can be very high in many countries, and there is always some risk of unexpected mishaps such as late or cancelled flights, lost luggage and belongings or stolen passports.

Our medical emergency helpline is on hand 24-hours a day, wherever you are in the world (you can even reverse the charges if you need to).

So, while we can’t guarantee that nothing will go wrong on your holiday, we can reassure you that if there is a problem, we’ll ease the cost and the stress.

Meaning the only thing you’ll really have to concentrate on during your break is enjoying yourself.

Is anxiety a pre-existing condition?

Anxiety is a pre-existing medical condition, and it’s important that you declare it on your insurance. We can offer travel insurance for the following anxiety disorders:

  • Anxiety – often diagnosed as General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Panic attacks
  • Agoraphobia
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Should I take a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with me on holiday?

If you are travelling within the EEA or Switzerland, then it’s important you pack your EHIC in your suitcase.

But the NHS strongly advise that you get proper travel insurance too.

An EHIC entitles you to reduced-cost and sometimes free medical treatment when you use a state healthcare provider (like our NHS) in relevant European countries.

If you do need to use your EHIC for health care, and you’ve bought your policy with us, then if you’ve still had to pay a subsidised fee for healthcare, we’ll remove the excess fee for medical emergency claims.

But an EHIC is not a travel insurance policy, and it will not cover you for holiday costs which are not directly related to medical emergencies.

So do take an EHIC where relevant, but it’s best to get proper travel insurance as well.

Please note: the EEA covers EU countries plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. However, even within the EEA, a few places such as Jersey and Monaco don’t accept an EHIC.

Medical screening

If you’re thinking of buying your travel insurance with us, we’ll ask you to complete an online medical screening.

The screening process is simple and straight-forward. You’ll be asked a few questions about your medical history, to help us understand how your condition affects you.

We can help you get a quote and complete the medical screening over the phone if you prefer. Our team are friendly and understanding, and any information given is treated confidentially.

What’s in the medical screening?

You’ll be asked a few simple questions about your anxiety and any other pre-existing medical conditions you have. You might find it useful to have details of any medical conditions to hand during the process.

It’s really important that we have a full and accurate picture of your medical circumstances and that you mention any related conditions to your anxiety, such as high blood pressure.

If your condition is not disclosed to us, you won’t be covered in the event of a claim.

What sort of questions will I be asked in the medical screening?

The sort of questions we may ask you about your anxiety could include:

  • Are you currently taking any medication for this condition?
  • Have you been treated for depression within the last 3 years?

The medical screening doesn’t take long and is easy to follow. We’ll be happy to help you over the phone with any queries you have.
