Travel Insurance For Epilepsy
Here at Medical Travel Compared, we work with specialist UK travel insurers who understand how epilepsy can affect people in different ways and so they tailor quotes around individual needs. Some of the insurers on our panel offer cover up to a high level of severity, taking into consideration the increased risk of needing medical assistance abroad and provide a good level of protection in case of an emergency. For those people whose condition is well managed, it’s unlikely that your premium will be loaded, and in many instances you will not be charged any extra. Whatever your circumstance, we’re here to assist you in finding the right epilepsy travel insurance at a competitive price!
Why Cover Epilepsy?
Seizures and other epilepsy related complications on holiday can be traumatic and medical treatment abroad can be very costly. Taking out travel insurance with epilepsy cover can have many benefits, such as having access to a 24 hour medical emergency assistance line to call upon should a crisis arise, and the replacement of lost or stolen medication. Expenses for ambulance and hospital admission costs, as well as repatriation back to the UK all tend to be included under the medical expenses section of a policy and can guard you against significant financial loss. Should your epilepsy prevent you from travelling, you can also look to claim for cancellation or curtailment of the trip (insurers’ terms and conditions vary).
Applying for Epilepsy Travel Insurance
Travel Insurance for people with epilepsy made easy - You will need to answer a few multiple choice questions so that the insurers on our panel can determine the level of cover you require. Simply hit the ‘Get a Quote’ button at the top of this page and you will be prompted to disclose epilepsy and any other pre-existing medical conditions that you may have. You will be asked questions regarding how many seizures causing loss of consciousness you have had in the last few weeks/ months, how many different medications you take, and if epilepsy is the cause of another type of medical condition, such as a brain tumour or head injury. This process only takes a few minutes and only needs to be completed once. You will then be able to compare quotes from several insurers.
You may find the Epilepsy Society’s web page on ‘Travelling with Epilepsy’ helpful if you require information about air travel and medication when going on holiday.
