How do I declare varicose veins on my travel insurance?

To help us provide you with cover for varicose veins, we’ll need you to complete our medical screening process, designed for us to understand how your condition affects you.

The process is a selection of straight-forward multiple choice questions, and your answers will be treated as strictly confidential.

It’s important that the answers you give are as thorough and accurate as possible. Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions will affect the validity of your policy if you need to claim further down the line.

What questions will I be asked about varicose veins in the medical screening?

The questions we ask you during the medical screening will vary depending on your personal circumstances. But the kind of questions you can expect about varicose veins include:

  • Do you have any of the following conditions?
    – Thrombosis
    – Lower limb ulcers or venous insufficiency
    – Cellulitis

What if my medical conditions change before I go on holiday?

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

Letting us know about any changes will help us to amend your policy to make sure you’re covered properly.
