Why having travel insurance makes all the difference
John2 went on holiday to the USA in February 2019 and unfortunately tripped and hurt himself.
Having received urgent medical attention at the hospital, he phoned our medical emergency support team for help.
We reassured John, told him that everything will be alright and contacted the hospital directly to sort everything out.
Dealing with a medical emergency is worrying enough without the extra stress of paying a large bill that could easily run into thousands of pounds. With having the right cover, John didn’t have to think about the financial burden that comes with paying off a hefty medical bill, allowing him to concentrate on getting better.
Wherever possible, if a medical emergency bill comes to more than £350, we’ll try to pay it directly to the hospital.
Covering pre-existing health conditions on your travel insurance
Talking about your pre-existing medical conditions can sometimes feel like a sensitive subject. But it’s important to make sure the travel insurance you buy covers you properly.
We’ll ask a few simple questions to help us get to know you and understand how your conditions affect you day to day. From there we will create a policy for your needs.
For more information on what conditions you need to declare, see our pre-existing medical conditions travel insurance page or talk to our friendly team today on 0808 281 4086.
When should I buy my single trip insurance?
We recommend taking out travel insurance as soon as you’ve booked your holiday. This way you’ll be covered for cancellations should disaster strike and you can’t travel.
Do I need to have had all of my Covid jabs to be covered?
As long as you’ve had all of the Covid-19 vaccines you’ve been offered, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered some 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.
