How Europe travel insurance gives you reassurance

The day before her holiday, Liz’s (1) doctor unfortunately advised her not to go because of her poor health.

She was disappointed, but relieved to know she had her travel insurance in place and her health conditions covered.

We worked quickly on her cancellation claim and the money reached her bank account three days later.

When you have up-to-date, personalised insurance like Liz, you’ll feel covered from the moment your policy starts.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why do I need travel insurance for holidaying in Europe?

Europe may not be a million miles away, but having good quality travel insurance will protect you if something unexpected happens.

While the United Kingdom is still a member of the European Union, the free European Health Insurance Card (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 during your trip.

Your EHIC won’t cover you for loss of personal items or cancelling or cutting your holiday short. With a valid medical claim on your travel insurance for Europe, we’ll waive the excess you may have to pay when you use your EHIC as well.

Do I need to declare pre-existing health conditions?

Yes, it’s very important for you to tell us about any health conditions you have or have had, so we can make sure you have a level of cover that’s just right for you.

We specialise in covering travellers with conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer, so get in touch to talk it through. We’ll take it step by step and won’t rush you.

Please remember, if you don’t let us know of your pre-existing conditions, we may not be able to help if something goes wrong. Forgetting to tell us about something on your medical history could affect your policy, meaning your claim could be refused if you needed to make a claim further down the line.
