Our main concern is providing you with adequate cover for your personal needs and that's why we won't sell a policy unless we can cover you for everything, including pre-existing medical conditions. Regular travel insurance is not usually designed to include cover for a pre-existing medical condition, even if your prescription is only precautionary. This means that should you require medical attention or need to cancel for any reason that’s directly or indirectly linked to your allergies, a regular policy may well decline your claim. If you’re planning a holiday and have allergies, regardless of how well your symptoms are controlled, it’s important to obtain cover including any pre-existing conditions and to declare this at the time of taking out travel insurance which would ensure that any possible complications are covered.
When travelling abroad you should always make sure that you have your medication to hand. If you have an EpiPen, it's worthwhile consulting your GP and obtaining a written letter to state you must always carry this with you, especially during flight.
We all travel abroad to share new experiences; in a foreign country you may find yourself more susceptible to foreign pollution and plants unique to where you have travelled to and if you have a food allergy be very particular with what you eat. If you have severe allergies it's recommended that you wear an allergy bracelet to bypass any potential language barriers.
