Can I get insured with a pre-existed medical condition?
Yes, you can. Although not all insurance companies offer over 80s travel insurance with medical conditions, for example, diabetes and heart conditions, there are certainly some that do. It’s important to make sure you declare any pre-existing medical conditions, as it will invalidate your claim if you don’t and you need to make a claim for a pre-existing condition.
These include anything from high blood pressure, diabetes, and epilepsy, to angina, heart conditions and cancer. But if you do suffer from any of these conditions, it doesn’t mean you’ll always be refused cover. There are plenty of insurers out there who are more than happy to help.
Will I have to pass a medical test to get travel insurance?
You’ll simply be asked a range of questions to do with any conditions you may have. You don’t necessarily have to pass a medical test to get covered, but insurers will be taking a look at your medical history, as this is what your insurance premium will be based on.
