We, at Insurancewith, understand that your medical diagnosis does not define you, and should not determine whether or not you can enjoy a holiday. Travelling with dementia or leaving somebody back home who has a diagnosis can be a worry, but our travel insurance cover is there to reassure you every step of the way.

But this is no longer the case here at Insurancewith, we treat mental illnesses the same as physical ones, and are happy to provide you with a dementia travel insurance quotation.

Can I get travel insurance cover for dementia?
Yes, Insurancewith can offer cover for dementia. We are proud to individually risk assess each customer’s condition, rather than assuming everyone with the same diagnosis has a similar experience. This means we are able to offer cover at a price that other may not be able to match. We also offer a one-to-one screening service for conditions that are a little more complex, where you can have a conversation with one of our specialist medical underwriters about your individual situation.
Will my travel insurance policy cover a relative back home with dementia?
Yes. If you need to cancel your holiday or come home early due to a change in a relative’s medical condition, that was deemed stable at the time you booked your holiday and brought your travel insurance policy, or a new diagnosis you will be able to submit a claim.
Am I covered if I need medical treatment abroad due to my dementia?
As long as your dementia is covered under your travel insurance policy you will be covered for emergency medical expenses relating to your diagnosis whilst you are abroad. This includes, but is not limited to; ambulance costs, triage, treatment, hospital stays, aftercare and repatriation.
What if I need to cancel my holiday because of dementia?
If your dementia is covered under the medical section of your travel insurance policy and there is a change in your condition or it is a new diagnosis and we are no longer able to provide cover or you no longer wish to travel, you will be able to submit a claim for cancellation under your travel insurance policy.
