After booking her cruise holiday, Liz1 was unexpectedly taken into hospital for two days.
When she told us about her new medical diagnosis, we added it to her policy so she was covered for all eventualities.
The day before she was due to travel, her GP sadly advised her not to go. Liz was disappointed, but was relieved that she had updated her policy and was covered for cancellation.
Just four days later, the claims money was in her bank account.
When you have personalised travel insurance like Liz, you’re protected for mishaps from the moment you book your holiday.

You’ll need to tell us about your hernia along with any other health conditions so your travel insurance policy is fit for your travel and medical needs.
If you forget to mention your hernia or any other pre-existing conditions you have, we wouldn’t be able to cover you for a medical emergency, should you need to claim further down the line.
We understand that talking about your health can be a sensitive topic. But don’t worry, we respect your confidentiality and promise to only use the information you give us to build a policy that’s just right for you.
We should be able to cover you as long as your doctor has confirmed it’s safe for you to fly.
If you ignore the advice of your doctor and travel, your policy won’t be valid and we wouldn’t be able to cover any claims.
Depending on the type of hernia you have, you may still be able to get travel insurance.
If you’ve recently had a laparoscopic repair of either a hiatus or inguinal hernia and have been signed off from treatment by your doctor, we may be able to cover you.
If you’re waiting for laparoscopic repair of a hiatus or inguinal hernia, but haven’t had your surgery yet, we may be able to offer a policy to cover you for things such as medical expenses (including the cost of you getting you back home) and baggage loss. However, the policy would not cover you for cancellations or having to cut your holiday short due if your claim was related to your hernia.
If you’re waiting for a non-laparoscopic hernia repair, we’re sorry but we wouldn’t be able to cover you for this or any other pre-existing health conditions.
It may work out cheaper to buy travel insurance as a family, but there are other benefits too.
If you have to cancel your holiday due to a medical emergency, everyone on your policy should be able to claim back the full cost of the holiday, just as long as it’s within your policy limits. With separate policies, it might be that only the person with the pre-existing medical condition is able to claim for cancellation.
To get personalised cover, you’ll need to tell us about your hernia and any other pre-existing health conditions you may have. To get to know you better we’ll ask you some questions about your health and how it affects you day-to-day.
Here are some questions we are likely to ask:
If you are planning a holiday to Europe, you will need to take a free EHIC as a condition of our travel insurance.
While the UK is still a member of the European Union, the 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 for your hernia, or other conditions, during your trip.
It’s important to remember that your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions. For example, it won’t cover you for cancellation of your holiday or emergency transportation home.
Your EHIC can help to reduce your medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available. If you can use your EHIC and have to pay a fee for your treatment, we’ll remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claim.
