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.
