What questions do we ask about your pre-existing medical conditions?

When you have pre-existing medical conditions to declare, we’ll ask you a few simple questions in our medical screening.

There’s no doctors appointments needed, just a few questions to help us to find out more about how your conditions affect you to create a policy tailored to you.

It’s important that you answer our questions as honestly as you can, or you may find that you’re not covered.

The questions we ask about cellulitis include:

  • How many episodes of cellulitis requiring hospital treatment have you had?
  • Are you still being treated for cellulitis?

Completing our medical screening is easy and can either be completed online or on the phone with our friendly team.

I had septicaemia 3 months ago as a result of cellulitis and was admitted to hospital. Will you still cover me for my cellulitis?

As long as you have completed any post-surgery follow-up treatment and your doctor has passed you as fit to travel, we will be happy to consider you for travel insurance.

Make sure you declare your septicaemia, cellulitis and any other pre-existing medical conditions you might have when you take out your policy.

If you fail to do so, you risk your policy being rendered invalid and any claim you make may be refused.

What if my medical conditions change before I go?

If you have any change to your medical conditions – including new symptoms or a change in medication then it’s important you let us know.

This helps us to amend your policy to make sure you’re covered properly.
