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 including your eye condition on your travel insurance is important

While John1 was travelling in the USA, his holiday took a turn for the worse when he tripped and hurt himself.

After receiving treatment, we were able to put John’s worries to rest straight away; we assured him that we would contact the hospital directly and take care of the bill.

John’s travel insurance policy meant he didn’t have to dig into his own savings or use his credit card. He knew we were covering the financial cost, so he was able to concentrate on the most important thing, getting better.

Keeping your travel insurance matched to your medical history is a must. As John knows, it means you can go on holiday feeling confident that if misfortune strikes, we’re on hand whenever you need us to help.

Do I need to have had both my Covid jabs to be covered?

As long as you’ve had the vaccines you’ve been offered for Covid-19, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered both doses yet or you’re medically exempt then you can also be covered.

If you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine or haven’t been able to have a dose you’ve been offered, you won’t be covered.

What sort of questions will I be asked about my eye condition?

We’ll ask you some simple questions about your eye and any other health conditions to get to know you a bit better.

For a number of eye conditions, including blindness, we just need you to let us know which conditions you have.

In the case of cancer of the eye or melanoma of the eye we will ask you some cancer-related questions such as:

  • Has there ever been a spread of cancer from the eye(s) to other parts of the body?
  • How long ago was your last treatment?

Is my eye condition covered by my Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC)?

If you’re planning a holiday to Europe, you’ll need to take a free GHIC (or an EHIC) as a condition of our travel insurance.

When the United Kingdom left the European Union, the GHIC replaced the EHIC as the means for accessing free or subsidised healthcare in selected European countries. Before you travel, make sure you check that your destination is covered by GHIC, just so you’re ready if you do need any emergency or necessary treatment for your eye condition during your trip.

Remember, your GHIC is not the same as having good health conditions travel insurance. For example, it won’t cover you if you need to cancel your holiday.

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

If my health conditions change after I’ve bought my travel insurance, what should I do?

As long as we are able to insure your updated health conditions, we will be able to add them to your policy. If you don’t keep us up to date with any changes, this may affect the validity of your policy and any future claims could be declined if you need us further down the line.
