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 keeping your travel insurance updated is important

John1 had never claimed on his travel insurance before, but while on holiday in the USA, he was relieved to have it.

Having had a fall, John was treated straight away after telling the hospital that he had travel insurance. He called our 24-hour medical helpline and we told him not to worry because we would arrange to pay the hospital directly. There was no need for John to pay anything. So, John could focus on the most important thing – getting better.

When you travel with personalised, up-to-date policy like John’s, you can have the confidence that if an unexpected problem arises, we’ll always be on hand to help.

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

We need to know about your digestive condition, along with any other pre-existing medical conditions, so we can personalise your travel insurance.

Telling us about your digestive condition, and any other health conditions you may have, means you’ll be covered if you have a medical emergency that could have been caused by your condition.

By not telling us, you wouldn’t be covered for anything related to existing health conditions you may have.

Some of the digestive conditions we cover are:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Colitis
  • Irritable bowel disease (IBS)
  • Hiatus hernia
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Can I get travel insurance if I’m waiting for surgery for my digestive condition?

If you’re waiting for surgery for your digestive condition, you may still be able to get travel insurance.

Take a look at our list of surgeries that we can cover with our travel insurance.

What questions will I be asked about my digestive condition?

We’ll ask you a few questions about your digestive condition so we can build a policy that’s right for you. This allows us to get a better idea of how your health affect you on a daily basis.

Don’t worry, we like to do things step by step, at a pace that suits you.

Some of the questions we may ask you about your digestive condition are:

  • How many operations have you had to treat this condition?
  • When was your most recent operation?
  • Have you needed regular drug injections or infusions?
  • Have you ever had a bowel obstruction?
  • How many medicines do you take?
  • Have you had a procedure to widen a narrowing of the oesophagus (food pipe)?
  • Do you take regular medication?

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

If you are planning a trip to Europe, you will need to take a free EHIC as a condition 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 need emergency treatment for your digestive condition during your trip.

It’s important to understand that your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical condition. For example, it won’t cover you if you needed to cancel your holiday, or pay for emergency transportation home if you needed it.

What your EHIC can do is reduce your medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available. If you can use your EHIC and have to pay a fee for your treatment, we’ll remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.
