Which? travel insurance provider should I choose to cover my pre-existing medical conditions? Avanti, of course!

What if you fall ill when you are abroad?

Avanti Insurance Limited is fast becoming the market leader in specialist travel insurance for over 50’s with pre-existing medical conditions.  In a recent market analysis carried out independently by Which?, Avanti was rated as one of the Top 5 Insurers for both a traveller with breast cancer and a traveller with heart disease on a Single trip policy to Europe.

So what makes us experts?  First and foremost, we listen to our customers so that we understand what level of cover each individual will need.  Under-insured travellers can be hit with phenomenal medical bills overseas.  Here at Avanti, we are able to tailor each policy according to the specifications of the customer.

Secondly, we treat our customers with respect.  We have been presented with two ‘Excellence in Customer Care and Service’ awards and have also had a special mention by Martin Lewis, founder and editor of, for cheap travel insurance for those with pre-existing medical conditions.  Avanti contact centre staff ensures that the correct level of cover is provided because over-insured travellers are not only paying too much on their premium, they are also not being treated fairly under the Financial Conduct Authority guidelines.

Thirdly, we consider all pre-existing medical conditions and even cover a large number for free.   Many travel insurance providers will not cover conditions like cancer, diabetes, COPD or leukaemia so customers are often forced to exclude these from their policies.  This can have a huge impact on medical costs whilst travelling abroad, especially to places like the US or Spain where medical assistance can run into the thousands.  All of our policies come with £10million medical emergency expenses and repatriation cover as standard so you can be rest assured that in the event of illness, injury or death you will have sufficient cover.

A large number of our clientele are either returning customers or have been recommended to us by existing customers.  In fact, in a recent online survey 95.3% of responders said they would or might recommend us to someone they were close to.  This is a testament to us sticking to our values and keeping the customer’s needs at the forefront of every policy we provide.
