Worried about the cost of diabetes travel insurance?

The cost of diabetes travel insurance will largely depend on three things;

  • The severity of your diabetes and related medical conditions
  • The country you are travelling to, and
  • The length of the trip that you are taking

There are ways that you can try to keep the cost of travel insurance for diabetes down.

Think about where you are travelling to and consider getting some diabetic travel insurance quotes before you book your holiday. Prices for travel insurance cover, whether you have diabetes or not, can vary greatly depending on what country you are visiting, this is down to the cost of obtaining medical treatment in that country and whether that country has a reciprocal agreement with the UK for health care.

For instance, the USA, Canada and the Caribbean are usually the most expensive destinations to get travel insurance for — the medical treatment in the USA and Canada is very good, but it is also very expensive. The Caribbean is also expensive because if you need emergency medical treatment here, you are likely to be taken to hospital in the USA.
