Why do I need travel insurance for an overactive thyroid?

Like any pre-existing medical condition, it’s important to declare and cover your overactive thyroid on your travel insurance. Just in case the worst happens when you’re away. That way, you’ve got a helping hand when you need it most.

Things go wrong on holiday more often than you might realise, with 1 in 20 people claiming on their travel insurance in 2018.*

These problems can vary from a lost passport or stolen luggage, to needing emergency medical assistance. Whatever the unexpected, having proper travel insurance can not only save you the worry, but reduce the strain on your life savings too.

Isn’t it worth doing right?

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

It’s important you declare an overactive thyroid 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.
