Getting you the right cover for your eye condition

As a specialist provider of travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, we know that eye conditions can affect people and their daily activities in different ways.

That’s why we have our medical screening process, so you can tell us about your conditions and how they affect you. By telling us this information we can build you a level of cover that suits your individual needs.

We consider all pre-existing medical conditions for our travel insurance, including the following eye conditions:

  • Macular degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Blindness
  • Glaucoma

We might need to ask you questions about your eye condition, and any other medical conditions, so that we can give you the best possible cover to suit your individual needs.


It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

When you’ve got Avanti Travel Insurance, if something does go wrong - we'll always aim to put it right. Good to know, especially if you’re travelling with pre-existing health conditions.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Do I need to declare my eye condition when taking out travel insurance?

Yes, you do need to declare your eye condition, and any other pre-existing medical conditions, when taking out your travel insurance, so these can be considered in your cover.

If you didn’t declare your pre-existing medical conditions when taking out your cover and needed to claim for treatment you received for them, we wouldn’t be able to cover your claim.

It might be that your eye condition is under control due to surgery, such as cataracts, or perhaps you need some assistance when travelling. By giving us as much information about your conditions and how they affect you, we can build you a level of cover that meets your needs.

We want you to be able to travel worry-free, knowing that you have great cover for your conditions.

I am waiting for eye surgery, will I still be covered?

As specialists in providing travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, we know that there are some surgeries that can be more common and come with less risks. That’s why we have a list of surgeries that we can cover you for, provided that this doesn’t cause you to cancel or cut short your holiday.

In order for us to be able to cover you we will need to make sure that you are fit and safe to travel and aren’t travelling against the advice of your doctor.

It might be that you are waiting for surgery on your cataracts or maybe you have recently had surgery and want to travel seeing the world with more clarity. Either way we should be able to provide you with cover so you can travel with peace of mind.

If you’re awaiting eye surgery, call us for free on 0800 888 6195.

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

If you are planning a 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 healthcare. Before you travel, you should check that your destination is covered by EHIC, so that you can be as prepared as possible in case you do need any treatment for your medical conditions.

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, or emergency transportation home. 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, and you have had to pay a subsidised fee for your healthcare, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.
