Don’t worry – You can still get travel insurance cover even if you have pre-existing medical conditions


Avanti Travel Insurance is designed for people just like you who may have what we call ‘pre-existing medical conditions’.  We believe that even if you have suffered a prior illness then you should still be able to travel with the complete peace of mind that a comprehensive travel insurance policy gives you.

This feature is designed to give you all the facts and answer any questions you may have.  So let’s start with explaining what we classify as a pre-existing medical condition:

A pre-existing medical condition or prior illness is defined as:

  • Any past or current medical condition that has resulted in symptoms or for which any form of treatment or prescribed medication, medical consultation, investigation or follow-up/check-up has been required or received
  • Any cardiovascular or circulatory condition (e.g. heart condition, hypertension, blood clots, raised cholesterol, stroke, aneurysm) that has occurred at any time prior to the commencement of cover under this policy
  • Any symptoms for which you are awaiting investigation/consultation, or are awaiting results of investigations, where the underlying cause has not been established

If you are in any doubt about any of the above conditions then call our team of friendly UK advisers on Freephone 0800 066 5604.
