Getting you the right cover to travel with an allergy or skin condition

Having an allergy or skin condition shouldn’t stop you from taking holidays as often as you like with great travel insurance.

As expert providers of travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, we know that allergies and skin conditions affect people in different ways.

That’s why we have our medical screening process, so you can tell us about any allergies or skin conditions that you have and how these impact your daily life and activities. By telling us about your pre-existing medical conditions, including allergies and skin conditions, we can build a level of cover that meets your individual needs.

We consider the following allergies and skin conditions as part of our pre-existing medical cover:

  • Nut allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Drug allergies
  • Other allergies
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Cellulitis
  • Other skin conditions

We will need you to tell us about the nature of your allergy or skin condition so that any cover that we can offer meets your needs.

It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

When you’ve got Avanti Travel Insurance, if something does go wrong - we'll always aim to put it right. Good to know, especially if you’re travelling with pre-existing health conditions.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Do I need to declare my allergy or skin condition when getting travel insurance?

Yes, it is essential for you to declare having an allergy or skin condition, along with any other pre-existing medical conditions, when getting travel insurance, so that these can be included within your cover.

If you don’t mention your allergy or skin condition, or any other medical conditions, when getting your travel insurance and need to claim for treatment, we may not be able to cover you.

It might be that you have eczema flare-ups as part of an allergic reaction, or perhaps you’ve got a severe nut allergy that can lead to anaphylactic shock.

We want you to be able to travel with confidence, knowing that you’ve got great travel insurance for your pre-existing medical conditions. By telling us about your pre-existing medical conditions, we can consider these within the cover we offer you, so that it meets your needs.

What questions will you ask me about my allergy or skin condition?

So we can offer you a level of cover that suits your needs, we will need you to tell us about the nature of your allergy or skin condition and how it affects your daily life.

We respect your confidentiality and will only use the information that you provide us to build a level of cover that’s suitable for you. Here’s some questions we commonly ask:

  • Have you needed hospital treatment for anaphylaxis in the last two years?

What should I do if I need emergency treatment for my allergy during my holiday?

We hope that you won’t need to think about having emergency treatment during your holiday, but if you do try not to panic.

We are on hand with our 24 hour medical emergency helpline, so no matter when you need us, we can help give you some peace of mind at your time of need. We can help with translating your medical information to any hospital staff if you need it, as well as offering advice on what you need to do next.

It might be that we arrange for emergency transport home if needed. If you can be fully treated in your destination country, we can help with rearranging your return flight when it’s safe for you to travel.

We know that being in hospital is the last thing that you want on your holiday, so we will be on hand to support you, so you can focus on your recovery.

Is my allergy or skin condition covered by my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

If you are planning a holiday in Europe, you will need to get an EHIC as a condition of our travel insurance.

The EHIC is free and entitles you to free healthcare in most European countries when you use their state provided healthcare. Before you travel, it’s best to check that your destination is covered by EHIC, so that you can be prepared if you do need any treatment during your holiday.

Your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions and won’t cover you for things that might go wrong, such as having to cancel your holiday or emergency transport home. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions comes in. What your EHIC can do is reduce the medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available to you.

If you can use your EHIC to receive treatment during your holiday, and you have paid a subsidised fee, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.

I’ve already purchased travel insurance for my allergy or skin condition, do I need to keep you updated if my conditions change?

Yes, it is essential for you to keep us updated if there are any changes to your medical conditions, or if you are diagnosed with a new condition, so that these can be considered within your cover.

It might be that you’ve recently changed the medication that you take to manage your skin condition, or maybe you’ve recently had a severe allergic reaction that led to a hospital admission.

You will need to tell us about any changes or new conditions before you next travel on your policy, in order for these conditions to be considered in your policy.
