Protect yourself when you travel with our insurance


Holiday travel insurance if you have colitis

We can often provide travel insurance that includes colitis (subject to a medical screening).

Finding travel insurance that includes colitis can be difficult. We specialise in providing travel insurance for people with a range of medical conditions.

We receive referrals from hospitals, GPs, clinics and medical charities from all over the UK.

Although the condition can sometimes be a bit unpredictable, treatment these days is much better and often enables you to lead a more normal life, with your colitis being managed.

'Ordinary' travel insurance usually isn't created to include cover for things like colitis. However, we do our best to include it in our travel insurance policy for you, which in all other respects is like a standard policy. Details of the cover can be found by clicking the link to obtain a quotation.

Obviously we can't guarantee to cover everyone with colitis - it will depend on your individual circumstances. We will, therefore, need to ask you some questions about your colitis in order to get an understanding of your situation. Our online medical screening system will go through them with you and then be able to tell you if we can offer you travel insurance that includes your colitis and, if so, what the price would be.

What are the travel insurance implications if I have colitis?

Our policy is comprehensive, so you will be covered if you're unable to even start your trip, for medical reasons.

Unfortunately, colitis can flare up suddenly. However, if you've been accepted by our experienced staff who do our medical screening, you will be covered for medical consultations, examinations, treatment and nursing care. These can otherwise be very expensive.

Should you need to extend your trip because you're not well enough to travel, your policy is automatically extended and will pay for new return travel arrangements to be made. It will also pay for any extra travel and accommodation costs incurred by 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 colitis will be met. An 'ordinary' travel insurance might decline their claim on the same grounds as they might decline a claim made by you.
