Travel Insurance with Diabetes - things to watch out for
Travellers going overseas would be wise to ensure that their travel insurance provides full cover for any pre-existing medical conditions like diabetes.
Diabetics need to pay particular attention to their travel insurance arrangements just in case they need medical assistance with their diabetes.
In the UK of course we are used to having the NHS as a safety net so that no matter where we travel you're never far from an NHS hospital. Traveling abroad however is an entirely different matter as in some countries they'll want to check you can afford the treatment before you're admitted!
Disclosing medical conditions on travel insurance applications couldn't be easier, especially if you use a specialist in this area who have the systems available to help you every step of the way.
We would recommend that you consider a comparison of prices and cover levels before committing yourself. After all whilst your bank may be good at providing banking services they are hardly likely to be experienced at helping customers with diabetes with their travel insurance!
Within the last 12 months a number of comparison services for travel insurance have been created that cater specifically for those with existing medical problems like diabetes and shopping with them can very significantly reduce the price and save you time.
