Travel insurance cover for medical conditions: Frequently asked questions
Why do I need to tell you about my pre-existing medical conditions when I buy travel insurance?
The most important reason for buying travel insurance is to protect you against the risk of incurring large medical bills if you need medical treatment whilst you are abroad.
In order to get Travel Insurance with Medical Conditions covered, including cover for the treatment of symptoms which can be related back a pre-existing medical condition you must have declared that medical condition when you bought your travel insurance policy.
If you don’t declare a pre-existing medical condition when you buy travel insurance you could be liable for large medical bills in the event that you require medical treatment whilst on holiday.
What is a pre-existing medical condition?
A pre-existing medical condition is any medical condition that you have, received treatment for, seen a doctor about, visited a hospital or clinic for, or taken prescription medication for in the last 2 years.
This includes medical conditions that you have recovered from, such as cancer, if you still see a doctor for check-ups or have seen a doctor for a check-up in the last 2 years.
As well as medical conditions which are controlled by medication or diet such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
How do I declare my medical conditions?
Declaring a pre-existing medical condition when you buy travel insurance is easy, simply tell us the name of your medical condition, we will then ask you a short series of multiple choice questions, such as how many medicines you take for that medical condition, or how often you need to see a doctor.
Medical screening can be done online or over the phone, whichever you prefer. It only takes a few minutes and will help us ensure you get the travel insurance cover you need.
My partner doesn’t have any medical conditions; can they be covered on the same policy as me?
Yes. In fact we recommend that you cover your travelling companions on the same travel insurance policy, even if they don’t have a pre-existing medical condition.
When you are all insured on the same travel insurance policy you will all be covered in the event that you need to cancel the holiday because of one travellers pre-existing medical condition. This is very unlikely to be the case if you are all insured on separate policies with different travel insurance providers.

What our customers say:
Getting the right travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions is very important to our customers, here’s what some of them have to say about our products and service:
“It's good to know that you can purchase travel insurance that covers pre-existing medical conditions. Most companies refuse to cover pre-existing conditions or will offer you travel insurance which absolutely excludes medical cover for the pre-existing conditions. It's also good to know that your policy offers cover for loss of medication. Well done and thank you.”
“This is the third travel insurance policy I have purchased with goodtogoinsurance.com and I have to say that the website just gets better and better - and that's only over a 6 month period. The pre-existing medical screening is brilliant and so easy to use and I love the instant response approach. I will be using you again in the future have no doubts about that.”
