We have chosen to work with AllClear Insure My Diabetes because they offer a range of levels of cover, both single and annual multi-trip policies, and have been a specialist in providing travel insurance for those who may have difficulty getting cover elsewhere.

Whichever insurer you decide is right for you, it’s important that you consider all aspects of cover when selecting your travel insurance policy, not just the price.

The risks of travelling without proper travel insurance cover

Insurers will require disclosure of pre-existing medical conditions of all those people to be insured on the policy. Many standard travel policies will exclude any pre-existing medical conditions. This means that if you had to make a claim for medical emergency treatment costs for any pre-existing conditions, or any related complications whilst away, some insurers may not cover these costs.

You should also be aware that other people travelling with you, who may be covered under a different provider’s policy, may not be covered for cancellation of the trip if it is cancelled due to your medical circumstances. AllClear Insure My Diabetes offer travelling companion cancellation cover as a valuable extra to your policy.

The UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC)

The UK Global Health Insurance Card, or the GHIC, lets you get necessary healthcare in countries in the European Union and some other countries. This may be free or it may require a payment that is the same to what a local resident would pay.

The GHIC replaced the the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but if you still have an EHIC you can continue to use it until the expiry date on the card. When it expires, you'll need to replace it with a GHIC. 

A GHIC or EHIC does not replace travel or medical insurance and it is recommended that you have private travel and medical insurance for your trip. It doesn't cover being flown back to the UK for medical evacuation, private healthcare treatment, ski or mountain rescue or stolen property.
