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

It’s important you declare your back problem and any other pre-existing medical condition you may have, when taking out a policy with us.

You can declare your medical condition through our online medical screening process, which is a straightforward set of questions for us to understand how your medical conditions affect 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 medical travel insurance 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.
