Colitis Travel Insurance

Specialist travel and holiday insurance if you have been diagnosed with colitis 

Travel insurance with colitis

Whilst you may need to take some precautionary measures, living with ulcerative colitis should not prevent you from travelling abroad and we are here to provide a specialist travel insurance policy which includes emergency medical expenses for colitis. Providing you have declared your condition during our medical screening, you can travel with the peace of mind that you are fully covered in the event of a claim.


Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which accounts for both crohns disease and ulcerative colitis, affects at least 1 in 250 people in the UK and we are here to provide that much needed reassurance in the event of a medical emergency. Providing you have declared your ulcerative colitis, if you suffer a flare up and require medical treatment abroad, cover will be available up to 5 or £10 million. If you need to cancel your trip due to your pre-existing medical condition as your doctor has advised against travel due to an unforeseen change in health, you will be covered up to the amount shown in your policy booklet.

Colitis travel and holiday insurance

It’s always advisable to speak with your doctor before travelling with ulcerative colitis, especially if it’s your first trip away since diagnosis as they are in the best position to tailor advice based on your medical diagnosis. With the right planning ahead of time, it should be possible for you to travel within the UK, Europe and Worldwide. Give yourself plenty of time to prepare, make sure you are eating the correct food and maintain your medication routine to keep symptoms to a minimum.
