insurance for the over 75 with medical conditions. The Redwood
Travel Insurance scheme specialises in the elderly offering a wider
range of cover, destinations and maximum length duration for the over
75. A wide range of existing medical conditions can be included -
with immediate screening and quotations.
The importance of disclosing information
It is vital that pre-existing medical conditions are disclosed when buying
travel medical insurance. It is also important that you check that your travel insurance
policy covers your conditions. When you obtain a quote through our travel
insurance quotation system you will be provided with contact details of the appropriate screening
line - we also offer facilities for you to do the screening yourself and buy cover for all
but the most severe conditions.
Examples of pre-existing Conditions we can cover
Asthma & respiratory
Cancer (general and breast cancer)
Depression, anxiety and stress disorders
Diabetes / Diabetic
Disabled conditions / disabilities
Epilepsy / epileptic medical conditions
High blood pressure
No matter what medical conditions you may
have, our travel insurance policies may cover them on referral, - usually
at standard premiums. However our travel insurance underwriters may be unable to cover them. In that case we can offer a travel insurance for your
condition provided: a) You do not have a terminal prognosis in six
months b) you are not travelling against doctor's advice and c) you are
not travelling to obtain treatment for that condition.

If you want travel insurance for a single person in your party.
Many people are unaware that their own travel insurance policy may not cover
additional costs if someone else going with them falls ill! We always recommend travel
insurance be arranged to cover all members who are to travel together. Thus the travel
insurance company will protect everyone as they know about the condition.
A travel insurance policy to cover people with medical
conditions for up to 12 months is launched on April 1st 2012. Redwood travel insurance
covers single trips for people aged to 85 (and yes 365 days is available for an 85 year
old) and annual travel insurance up to 74 (90 days a trip). Quotes are available here
although medical screening is required.
Length of trips
Long stay travel insurance, usually defined as travel for
more than 30 days is available though this is for the
younger (i.e. under 70) traveller. Cover is usually similar to a normal, single trip, travel
insurance policy. However there is a variation: backpacker travel insurance, is suitable for students
in their gap year who really only need cover for medical expenses, loss of passport and
possibly some luggage cover. The premiums for this are very cheap due to the limited nature
of the benefits provided.
Although you are buying this product online, we would like to
emphasise that we are a broker and, as such, the policies we offer are substantially better
than those you will buy by going through a price comparison website. On those sites you will
find policies with excesses over £200 per person per claim (e.g. if you go with a
family and all your luggage is stolen then you could find that you have to pay £800 towards
the claim - £200 for you, £200 for your wife/ partner and similar amounts for the
children. The reduction of cover on these sites gives serious cause for concern as customers
won't realise the costs they have to pay themselves until they make a claim. Our excesses,
by the way, range from £35 to £65 in most cases, with limits on a family claim and in many
cases you can delete them i.e. have no excess at all.
