Travel insurance for people with gallstones
Gallstones affect about 10-15% of the UK population according to a study carried out at Aberdeen University. According to the NHS, gallstones are small stones, usually formed of cholesterol in the gallbladder. In most cases they don’t cause any symptoms or require treatment, but they can trigger an intense and sudden abdominal pain.
We understand that insuring a medical condition can be frustrating, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get travel insurance. So, if you are suffering with gallstones and are concerned about whether travel insurance will be able to cover you and your medical condition, or you’ve had trouble getting covered in the past, we may be able to help you.
