Getting you the right cover for your gallbladder condition

You aren’t defined by your gallbladder condition, so why should it define your holidays?

We consider all medical conditions for travel insurance, including gallbladder conditions like gallstones or gallbladder removal.

As expert providers of travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, we know that gallbladder conditions can affect people in different ways. Some people might rely on medication to keep their condition under control, where others might have had surgery to relieve their symptoms.

This is why we have our medical screening process so you can tell us all about the nature of your gallbladder condition, and any other pre-existing conditions you may have, so we can build a level of cover that suits you.

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 gallbladder condition when getting travel insurance?

Yes, it is essential for you to declare having a gallbladder condition when getting travel insurance, as well as any other pre-existing medical conditions you have, so these can be included in your cover.

If you didn’t mention having a gallbladder condition, or any other pre-existing conditions, when getting your travel insurance and then needed to make a claim for any treatment you’ve received for these, we wouldn’t be able to cover you for this.

We want you to be able to travel with confidence in your cover, knowing that your travel insurance includes your pre-existing medical conditions, so you can enjoy worry-free holidays.

What questions will I be asked about my gallbladder condition?

So we can offer you cover that works for you, we will need to ask you some questions about the nature of your gallbladder condition and how it affects your daily life.

We respect your confidentiality and will only use the information that you provide to build a level of cover that best meets your needs.

Here are some of the questions we commonly ask:

  • Are you awaiting any further investigations or treatment for biliary stones?
  • How long ago was your last procedure to the gallbladder?
  • Have you had a cholecystectomy (Gallbladder removal)?
  • Are you awaiting any procedures to treat your gallbladder or bile ducts?
  • Have you had any symptoms related to your gallbladder or bile ducts in the last 12 months?

If you are ready to answer these questions about your gallbladder condition, let’s get your travel insurance sorted! Get a quote online or call us.

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

If you are planning a holiday in 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 any treatment during your holiday.

Your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions and won’t cover you for things that might go wrong, such as having to cancel your holiday or emergency transport home. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions comes in. What your EHIC can do is reduce the medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available to you.

If you can use your EHIC to receive treatment during your holiday, and you have paid a subsidised fee, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.

How soon can I travel or fly after having my gallbladder removed?

We understand that you might want to book a holiday after having surgery, so you can relax and unwind.

It’s essential for you to check with your doctor whether you are safe to travel before you book a holiday. Your doctor will be able to advise you on how long you should wait before travelling, particularly if you are thinking of flying.

The time you have to wait before travelling will depend upon the surgery you’ve had and how quickly your doctor feels you’ll fully recover, so you can consider this when booking a holiday.
