FAQs on medical travel insurance

What if I am taking medication as a preventative?

If you are prescribed medication as a precaution and not for treating or controlling a current or previous medical condition, then you do not need to declare this.

However, if you are prescribed a medicine to control or prevent the return of a previously diagnosed condition e.g. medication that controls blood-pressure, then you will need to declare this condition to us.

What will affect my premium?

A number of combining factors will determine the level of risk undertaken by the insurer which will in turn affect the price of quotes presented to you. These factors include - number and severity of medical conditions declared; your age; how long your trip will last; where you are travelling to.
  • Medical condition
  • Using more than 15 years of comprehensive claims data we accurately assess your medical conditions and their severity to calculate the level of risk and determine the premium of our AllClear policies.
  • Destination
  • In some countries, if you fall ill you may be channelled through private hospitals rather than the state system. This means that if you were to need medical attention whilst on holiday your healthcare would be more expensive. Geographical location will also affect the cost of repatriation if required. This is factored into your premium.
  • Age
  • As we get older we become more likely to make a travel insurance claim and this affects the price of your premium.
  • Duration
  • The longer you're on holiday for the more likely it is that you will need to make a claim, and the risk is rated accordingly

The importance of declaring all conditions

Failing to declare a condition when taking out travel insurance could invalidate any claim resulting from that condition. Even managed conditions such as asthma, high cholesterol, low or high blood pressure, can become more difficult to control whilst on holiday due to changes in time zone, climate and lifestyle. So, to avoid the risk of leaving you or your family significantly out of pocket it's important to declare all your conditions.

Do I want a single trip or annual multi-trip policy?

Annual multi-trip travel insurance
If you are considering taking several trips throughout a 12 month period, it's worth considering an annual multi-trip policy as this could work out cheaper. With annual multi-trip insurance, you are covered for a number of trips within a 12 month period.

Whether you are a solo traveller, a couple or family, annual cover could be the cheapest option throughout your travels. Our comparison tool will allow you to compare policies from a variety of specialist travel insurance providers.

Single trip travel insurance
If you are travelling once during the year, or you're unsure of your travel plans single trip cover can be a cost effective solution. Cover can be arranged for the exact number of days you require and is suitable for a single person or a couple.

Our comparison tool will allow you to compare policies from a variety of specialist travel insurance providers. If you would like to know the difference in cost between a single trip policy and an annual multi-trip policy, simply select the button on the quote page and you'll be able to compare the cover and price difference.

What happens if my medical situation changes after I get my insurance?

If you develop a new medical condition or there is a change in your existing declared condition you must notify us at the earliest opportunity but in particular before you book or commence your journey.

This is important because insurance companies view as a 'change in the state of health' and consequently failure to declare could invalidate a claim.
