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.

Do I need to let you know about my health conditions when getting travel insurance?
It’s essential that you tell us of any pre-existing health conditions you have, when buying your travel insurance.
Problems can crop up while on holiday when you least expect it, from hospital treatment to needing to be flown home by air ambulance and healthcare abroad can be pricey. With personalised travel insurance that covers your health condition, you can travel knowing you’ll be supported if the unexpected happens.
That way, you can relax on holiday with unlimited emergency medical cover with our Deluxe policies. When we say your health conditions are covered by your travel insurance, they’re covered.
If you forget to tell us about a health condition you have, this may affect the validity of your policy and the chance of your claim being accepted if you needed us. But you can always update your policy before you travel to make sure you’re covered.
