Getting the right cover to travel with an enlarged prostate
Having an enlarged prostate should not be a barrier to you seeing more of the world.
We know that travelling and getting good travel insurance for an enlarged prostate might be something that makes you feel anxious, but it needn’t be.
As expert providers of travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, we understand that having an enlarged prostate may affect people in different ways. Some people may use medication to control their condition where others may not.
That’s why we have our medical screening process, so you can tell us about the nature of your enlarged prostate, and any other conditions you may have.
By telling us about your pre-existing medical conditions we can provide you with cover that meets your individual needs, so you can travel worry-free and enjoy your holiday to the full.
Let’s get you travel insurance for your enlarged prostate. You can get a quote online or call us free today on 0800 888 6195.
Do I need to declare my enlarged prostate when getting travel insurance?
Yes, it is essential that you tell us about your enlarged prostate, along with any other pre-existing conditions, when you get travel insurance, so that any cover that you are offered is appropriate for your needs.
Otherwise if you didn’t tell us about a pre-existing medical condition and needed to claim we would not be able to cover you.
We know that one-size doesn’t fit all, especially when it comes to health conditions. That’s why we have a medical screening process, where we ask questions about the nature of your enlarged prostate, and any other conditions that you may have, so we can make sure that any cover we offer you is appropriate for your needs.
We respect your confidentiality and will only use the information that you provide to build you a travel insurance policy that best meets your needs.
Is my enlarged prostate covered by my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?
If you are planning a holiday or trip to 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 treatment when you travel.
Your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions and won’t cover you for things that go wrong, such as having to cancel your holiday. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical cover comes in. What your EHIC can do is reduce your medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available.
If you can use your EHIC to receive treatment, and you have had to pay a subsidised fee for your healthcare abroad, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.
My family don’t have any pre-existing medical conditions, should they be on the same policy if we are travelling together?
It might seem odd to get a travel insurance policy all together, especially if you are the only one with pre-existing medical conditions that need covering. But there are actually quite a few benefits of buying a travel insurance policy together as a family.
The main perk of buying together is that you should all be covered to claim back the full cost of your holiday if you needed to cancel due to a medical emergency, provided that your policy limits allow this. Having separate policies might mean that only the person that’s having the medical emergency would be able to claim the full cost of their holiday back.
Taking out a travel insurance policy as a family, or group, gives you added protection and reassurance that you are all covered in the event of an emergency.

- Have you had more than two urinary tract infections in the last twelve months?
- Have you ever been admitted to hospital as a result or a urinary tract infection?
- Are you on any long-term treatment for this condition?
- Have you been treated for a kidney condition in the last three months?

I’ve already purchased enlarged prostate cover; do I need to keep you updated if my medical conditions change?
Yes, it is essential for you to keep us updated if anything changes with your medical conditions, or if you are diagnosed with new conditions so we can include them in your cover.
If you change the medication that controls your condition it might seem like a minor detail to include but we will need to know about it so we can consider this in the cover we provide.
You will need to let us know about any new conditions before you travel on your policy in order to be covered for them.
You can update your policy by speaking to our Customer Service Team, who will be happy to help you.
Update your policy today by calling 0808 281 0389.
