Travel insurance for diabetics

We understand that insuring a medical condition can be a bit of a pain. With over four million people living with diabetes, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get diabetes travel insurance in the UK. So if you’re diabetic and you’re concerned about whether travel insurance will be able to cover you, or you’ve had trouble getting covered in the past, we may be able to help you.

One of the things that makes us stand out from the crowd is that we’ll consider all medical conditions, including people looking for travel insurance for diabetes and high blood pressure. Simply get a quote online, contact us to go through our simple medical screening process, or check out the full list of pre-existing medical conditions that we cover.

What does diabetic travel insurance cover?

Whether you have type 1, 2 or gestational diabetes, we’ll do our best to find a policy that’s suited to your needs. Like all of our travel insurance policies, our diabetes UK travel insurance will include a number of great features as standard, including:

  • Holiday cancellation cover
  • Belongings and baggage cover
  • Passport, money and documents cover
  • Delayed departure cover
  • Personal accident cover
  • Accommodation cover
  • Cover for over 50 sports and activities
  • Medical and hospital expenses cover (including expenses related to any medical conditions you have declared and have been covered by us)

For more information about what’s covered with diabetes travel insurance, have a read of our policy documents. And if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, just get in touch.

Does type 2 diabetes affect travel insurance?

Your travel insurance could be affected if you have diabetes. Make sure you declare type 2 diabetes, and any other medical conditions, when buying your policy. We’ll ask you a few questions, then tell you if we can cover you (we almost always can) and whether you’ll need to pay any extra (often you won’t need to).

Do you have to declare prediabetes on travel insurance?

It’s important to declare all medical conditions, including prediabetes, when buying travel insurance. If you don’t tell us about your conditions and something happens while you’re away, your claim might not be paid. We consider all medical conditions and can cover many of them at no extra cost.

We consider all conditions

If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you don’t need to worry – you can declare them online quickly and easily.
