Having epilepsy shouldn’t mean that you can’t travel abroad, however, you will need to plan in advance and ensure that you have a travel insurance policy with epilepsy cover that fully suits your needs. When declaring your medical condition you must be truthful, even if you had an epileptic incident once, many years ago you must still declare it particularly if you are still taking prescribed medication for the condition.

Travelling with epilepsy isn’t necessarily a problem but it is something to take into consideration if you’re thinking of going abroad. Going away with a medical condition can be difficult, expensive and sometimes hard to organise with lots of things having to be done at the same time. Planning and preparation are important components to any holiday but when you’re travelling with epilepsy, it’s easier to make sure nothing goes wrong if you’re prepared.
As seizures are often triggered by extreme tiredness, dehydration, stress, excitement or anxiety, all of which can occur before going away on a trip, it’s best to make sure you and your travelling companions know what to do should something like this happen.
Travel insurance is a vital item to invest in before you depart, no matter where you might be travelling to, and with so many varying types of epilepsy, it’s hard to find an insurance company who fully understands. Whilst cover might be nearly impossible to find elsewhere, Insurancewith have years of experience in providing people with medical conditions travel insurance and the opportunity to go away.
We offer policies that are suited to you and your individual medical situation with our award-winning medical screening service which allows us to assess precisely the affects your condition might have whilst you’re away. We don’t have extortionately high premiums because we believe that everyone has the right to travel, no matter what their medical condition, so we try our best to offer cover to everyone we can.
If you have a seizure in a foreign country it can be a frightening and overwhelming experience. Medical expenses abroad can be costly, especially when we’re used to the NHS, but with medical travel insurance from Insurancewith, you have no need to worry – we’ll take care of the medical expenses and even the costs to get you home should you be advised to cancel your trip.
