Travel insurance recommended for holiday-makers with pre-existing conditions

Monday, 3 August 2009

About 17 million Brits travel outside of the UK every year, and a quarter of them become sick enough to require a visit to a doctor while abroad. While many cases are common illnesses, like a cold, many are consequences of pre-existing conditions.

Some travel insurance providers will not cover health travel insurance if the policyholder has not told the company about a pre-existing illness.

Coverage for pre-existing conditions may cost more, but the Post Office argues that the coverage will pay for itself in the medical bills foregone later.
