Travel Insurance for people over 65 with Diabetes

Cover for any age up to three months away

We provide specialist travel insurance to cover people with diabetes. We realise that the severity of your diabetic condition may vary and you may have type 1 or type 2 diabetes so whilst in many cases a normal travel insurance may suffice, in others a travel insurer specialising in medical conditions may be needed.

The importance of disclosing information

Diabetes is a material fact and should be disclosed. Failure to do so may not only result in your travel insurance not protecting you should you need emergency treatment for your diabetic condition but for any other conditions if they symptoms may be exacerbated by diabetes.

Nevertheless the degree of diabetes varies. You may or may not be on insulin, which may be taken orally or intravenously. You may or may not have been subject to hypoglycemic attacks. We therefore offer the following suggestions for the best course of action to obtain a quotation.

Our normal travel insurance quotation system

This travel insurance quotation system compares the prices from a range of policies and supplies details of the appropriate medical screening line for you to check to see if your diabetic condition can be covered and at what terms. It also includes our bespoke travel insurance policy that is designed to cover people with medical conditions such as diabetes - but you will then have to process the quotation again to include the various medical factors requires. 

This would probably be the best option if you have mild diabetes and no other medical conditions.

Bespoke travel insurance quotation

If you are over 85 and intending to travel for more than a month outside Europe or have a more severe form of diabetes, perhaps including additional medical conditions then this option for travel insurance for diabetes is probably the best.

Once you have obtained the quote, you do have the option of removing medical cover for your pre-existing conditions but we do not recommend it.
