If you're expecting, finding pregnancy travel insurance can be difficult, and no one wants to spend too much time thinking about insurance. We think getting covered during your pregnancy should be simple, so you can concentrate on looking forward to your trip.
Our travel insurance policies cover you, even if you’re pregnant. What’s more, you can add your child to the policy for free once they're born.
Travel insurance is always a top priority when booking a getaway, but even more so when it comes to travelling whilst pregnant. A good pregnancy travel insurance policy will cover most potential issues that could arise on your holiday, and give you peace of mind throughout your trip.
We cover pregnancy complications on all of our policies, from Budget to Black cover. We even cover it on our backpackers insurance policies.
We don't consider pregnancy or childbirth to be a medical conditions - so you won't be charged any extra to be covered for your holiday. On all our policies, we provide cover for claims that may come from unexpected complications of pregnancy and childbirth, so just let us know before you go.
We can cover your kids for free!
If you’re going away with your children, we can cover them on your policy at no extra charge, whether you buy an annual policy or single trip cover.
We do pet insurance now too

Some women prefer not to travel in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy because of the nausea and tiredness during the early stages, as well as the risk of miscarriage being higher in the first three months, whether you’re travelling or not. Travelling at the later stages of pregnancy can be uncomfortable for women and so it’s advised to travel between four and six months. However, it’s entirely up to you – many women are happy to travel throughout the duration of their pregnancy, which is why our pregnancy travel insurance is flexible to cover your individual needs.
Flying is not harmful to you or your baby, but it’s important to discuss any health issues or pregnancy complications with a midwife before you travel. Some airlines may not let you fly towards the end of your pregnancy, so check the airline policy before you book your flight.
Our policies allow you to claim for cutting short or cancelling your holiday if you become pregnant after we've sold you the policy, and you'll be more than 32 weeks pregnant (or 24 weeks if you know you are having more than one baby) at the start of or during your trip. Or, your doctor advises that you're not fit to travel because you're suffering from complications of pregnancy or childbirth.
If you still choose to travel, you can't claim for cutting your trip short unless it's as a result of the complications of pregnancy or childbirth.
The Zika virus shouldn’t be a concern for anyone who isn’t pregnant as it will often occur as a mild infection and isn’t harmful. If you are pregnant, there is evidence that it may cause microcephaly (small heads) and other birth defects. The NHS recommends that if you're pregnant, you should avoid any countries with a moderate to high risk of virus transmission. Please visit the GOV.UK website for the most up-to-date list of countries by level of Zika risk.
