Why do I need travel insurance for ME?

When you’re living with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), otherwise known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), it’s great to think about the exciting things you’ll be planning to do, or having some time to relax. But to feel fully at ease on holiday, it’s important to make sure your travel insurance covers you and your plans properly.

Things go wrong when on holiday more often than we’d like to think, with 1 in 20 people claiming on their travel insurance in 2017.**

These problems occuring can vary from lost luggage or a stolen passport, to a medical emergency needing you to be flown home by air ambulance.

Is it really worth risking, and travelling without a tailored policy?

Having proper cover in place when travelling with ME can save you not only the worry of a medical emergency but the large costs that may put a strain on your life-savings.

To declare your ME on your travel insurance, we’ll need you to complete our medical screening.

The process takes little time at all, and is a straightforward set of multiple choice questions designed for us to understand how your ME affects you. That way, you’ll be covered properly with a tailored policy that suits your needs.

It’s essential that the answers you provide about your medical history are as thorough and accurate as possible. Failure to disclose important details of your medical circumstances will affect the validity of your policy, should you need to claim later down the line.

What questions will I be asked about my ME during the medical screening?

Of course, the questions we ask you during the medical screening will vary depending on your personal circumstances. But the kind of questions you can expect to be asked about ME & chronic fatigue include:

  • In the last two years has this condition interfered with your activities of daily living?
  • How many unplanned hospital admissions have you had for this condition in the last twelve months?
