A relaxing break can be just the tonic when you're pregnant. Here's everything you need to know about taking out travel insurance during your pregnancy.
Making sure you have appropriate insurance policy is the most important thing to do before you travel. There are other key points to keep in mind, too:
If you’re planning to get pregnant or are already pregnant, you should avoid travelling to countries where there is a risk of contracting the Zika virus. If you do book a trip to an area known to have the Zika virus, there will be no cancellation cover and medical costs may not be covered.
Try to avoid travelling to places where you need vaccinations when pregnant. However if you need to travel, speak to your GP about what vaccinations are safe.
Food and drink
Check if you can drink water from the taps locally. If in doubt, buy bottled water. Ensure food is thoroughly washed in suitable drinking water and cooked thoroughly.
Take your maternity notes with you
Just in case anything happens, it’s best that the local doctors know how your pregnancy has progressed so far. If you're travelling to Europe, take your EHIC as well.
