Getting travel insurance for your next holiday can feel like a minefield. From working out what you do and don’t need to declare, to when you can and can’t be covered, it can feel daunting.
So, we’ve put together this easy guide to make things as straightforward as possible when it comes to covering your medical condition with travel insurance.
Here, you’ll find out if we can cover you, and your health conditions, with our travel insurance.
Travel insurance that’s with you all the way - so you’ll be ready to roll, wherever your holiday takes you.
That’s Travel Reassurance!
As long as you can answer yes to all three statements below, you should be able to get an Avanti Travel Insurance policy:
✔ I am fit and able to undertake my planned trip.
✔ I am NOT travelling against the advice of a doctor (or would be travelling against the advice of a doctor had you sought their advice.)
✔ I am NOT travelling with the intention of having medical treatment, tests or consultation abroad.
If you have answered no to any of the above, we unfortunately can’t cover you with travel insurance. You can contact The British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA) who may be able to assist you in finding travel insurance that can cover you.
|Cancellation and cutting your holiday short||£1,000||£5,000||£7,500|
|Medical emergency and repatriation||£5 million||£10 million||Unlimited|
|Money and passport cover||£300||£500||£600|
|Personal liability||£2 million||£2 million||£2 million|
It’s important you tell us about any pre-existing medical conditions you have, or have had in the last two years, so you’re properly covered by your travel insurance.
If you forget to tell us any of your medical history, this could make your policy invalid if you needed to claim further down the line.
If you’ve ever had any heart or circulatory conditions, or symptoms, you need to let us know.
If you have any undiagnosed symptoms, we can offer you travel insurance but can’t cover you for anything related to any of your pre-existing health conditions. Don’t worry, we’d still be able to cover you for things like lost luggage, flight delays and medical emergencies not related to any of your pre-existing health conditions or undiagnosed symptoms.
The level of cover you can get will depend on where you are in your diagnosis and treatment journey. To get your quote, give a member of our friendly team a call today.

If you’re having a medical procedure or surgery that’s not listed above, or waiting for more than one on the above list, then we may still be able to offer you travel insurance. But it wouldn’t cover you for any medical emergencies related to any of your pre-existing health conditions.
If your surgery or treatment isn’t listed in the above table, we won’t be able to cover you for any medical expenses, including the costs of getting you back to the UK from your destination that was related to your health condition. If you had an unrelated medical emergency, then you would still be covered.
If your recent surgery or treatment is listed above, we can cover you with travel insurance (excluding medical expenses and repatriation for the condition you had surgery for.)
