Feel confident in your travel insurance when you have depression

When you’re living with depression or other mental health conditions, it’s important to travel knowing you’re protected by travel insurance that’s just right for you.

With Avanti, you can personalise your travel insurance so you feel safe from the word go.

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

Ever get the feeling that some insurers are just waiting to catch you out? With Avanti Travel Insurance, when we say your health conditions are covered - they’re covered.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why covering your health conditions with your travel insurance matters

After booking travel insurance for a cruise, Liz1 had to spend two days in the hospital. When she was diagnosed with a new condition, she immediately called us and was pleased to hear her health condition could be included in her cover.

The day before she was due to travel, Liz developed a further medical condition and to her disappointment, was advised by her doctor to cancel her trip.

Liz’s claim was accepted and she was heartened when the refunded money reached her account three days later.

Personalising your travel insurance and keeping it updated is really important. Take no risks and then, like Liz, you’re protected from the moment you take out your policy.

Do I need to tell you about my depression when getting travel insurance?

Yes, it’s essential to tell us about your depression along with any other pre-existing health conditions. If you don’t, we’d be unable to cover costs if you needed to make a claim that related to your health.

We understand that depression affects people in different ways and it can sometimes be difficult to talk about mental health. We can talk through everything at a pace that suits you, so you feel comfortable. We’ll never rush you.

My family don’t have depression, should they be on the same policy if we’re travelling together?

One of the biggest benefits of a group policy is that if you need to cancel your trip due to a medical emergency, each and every one of you would be covered, so each of you could claim back the cost of your holiday.

What kind of questions will I be asked about my depression?

To help us personalise your cover, we’ll ask questions such as:

  • Have you ever had a compulsory hospital admission as a result of this condition?
  • How many times have you been admitted to hospital in the past two years?
  • Have you been referred to or reviewed by a psychiatrist for this condition?
  • Has this condition ever meant you’ve had to cancel or cut short travel plans?

I’ve already bought travel insurance for my depression. Should I tell you if my medical condition changes?

Yes, it’s very important to update us if there’s a change to an existing health condition, or if you are diagnosed with something new.

This way, you’ll have the security of knowing you’re travelling with personalised protection, just in case you’re in medical need when you’re away. If you don’t update us, you won’t be covered and any future claims could be refused.

Is my depression covered by my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

If you’re planning a holiday to Europe, you’ll need an EHIC as part of the conditions of our travel insurance.

While the United Kingdom is still a member of the European Union, the EHIC gives you access to free or subsidised state healthcare in most European countries. Before you travel, you should check that your destination is covered by EHIC, so you can be prepared if you do need treatment for your depression, during your trip.

Your EHIC can help to reduce your medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available. If you can use it to get treatment for your condition and are asked to pay a subsidised fee for your healthcare, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claim.

It’s important to understand that your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance. Your EHIC won’t cover you for things that go wrong, such as cancellation due to medical emergency or lost luggage. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical cover comes in.
