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 European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
The EHIC allows you to access state-provided healthcare in all European Economic Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland.
There are restrictions on the cover provided via the EHIC and as a result, is not a comprehensive alternative to travel insurance. EHIC is not valid on European cruises, does not cover private healthcare, costs such as mountain rescue, being repatriated back to the UK, and stolen property.
Full details of the cover provided by the EHIC can be found on the EHIC website.
