Many mainstream travel insurance companies are able to provide cover for a variety of health conditions
These days, many mainstream travel insurance companies are able to provide cover for a variety of health conditions and tailor your travel insurance quote to you.
When you apply for travel insurance, you’ll probably be asked a series of questions including whether you want to cover a pre-existing condition. If you have a condition like cancer, diabetes or heart disease, you must declare it as a pre-existing condition. If you don’t, your insurance company has the right to refuse to pay for any claims directly or indirectly related to this condition while you’re travelling.
If the insurance company generally provides cover for the condition, they’ll ask you some more detailed questions about the disease to find out the severity of your condition and whether they can offer you specific cover or not.
If they can’t provide medical cover at all, there are some specialist travel insurance companies who may be able to provide insurance for your trip.
