We regularly provide travel insurance for people who are diabetic. We receive referrals from hospitals, GPs, clinics and medical charities from all over the UK.
'Standard' travel insurance is often not designed cover medical conditions such as diabetes - you need a more specialist travel insurance policy, such as ours.
These days, treatments for diabetes often mean that you can lead a much more normal lifestyle, which needn't preclude you from travelling and going on holiday in the same way as anyone else.
Obviously we can't guarantee to cover absolutely everyone who is diabetic- it will depend on your individual circumstances and we do need you to answer some questions in our screening process.
The quickest way is to obtain your quotation online and this also keeps down our costs and therefore your premiums!
Most people are concerned that if they become when they're away, their medical costs will be covered. If you've declared your diabetes to us and we've accepted it in our cover, then your medical costs will be covered.
Not only those, but if you're unable to go on your trip because of medical reasons, the costs you've incurred will be met.
If you're ill towards the end of your trip, new travel arrangement costs will be met as well as extra accommodation costs. This will also apply to a partner or travelling companion who has stayed with you. It is therefore very important that anyone travelling with you is covered by our policy so that any claim they need to make that could be in any way regarded as linked to your diabetes will be met. An 'ordinary' travel insurance might decline their claim on the same grounds as they might decline a claim made by you.
