Disability Travel Insurance
Having a disability shouldn’t affect your holiday plans, however finding an affordable travel insurance policy that fully covers your conditions can be difficult, and understandably people are reluctant to go abroad without a disability travel insurance policy which fully covers their needs, especially if they are travelling outside the European Union. Insurancewith recognises this problem and has created a bespoke medical screening system which allows us to rate the risk of travelling with a disability correctly and thereby offering far more affordable holiday insurance policies for disabled travellers.
Insurancewith specialise in travel insurance for disabled people and our policies have been designed with the following people in mind:
- People with a broad spectrum of physical and/or learning disabilities
- People with limited mobility or those registered disabled
- People with both long and short term disabilities
- People who take prescribed medication to stabilise their disability
In order to ensure our travel insurance for the disabled is relevant to people who need it, we consult with the charity Genetic Alliance UK who helps us understand the thousands of rare genetic conditions which can cause disabilities. By fully understanding these conditions we are able to offer cover where it has been refused by other providers who don’t fully understand the condition. This also enables us to offer more affordable premiums, because by understanding the condition we are able to assess the risk more accurately. Some of the benefits of our travel insurance for disabled are:
- £10 Million emergency medical cover
- Emergency 24 hour helpline manned by Doctors
- Family cover available
- Cover available for existing medical conditions
- Repatriation cover as standard
You can discuss you travel insurance needs in confidence with our Customer Service Centre on 02038 293 875, they are fully trained in medical screening and will deal with all your enquiries in a professional and sensitive manner. Or if you prefer you can go through the quote and medical screening yourself on- line; however the Customer Service Centre is on hand if you have any queries with your on-line quote or medical screening.
