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

Travel and holiday insurance with hydrocephalus

It's So Easy can provide travel insurance cover subject to a medical screening if you have been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which is a build-up of fluid in the brain. The excess fluid puts pressure on the brain and can cause symptoms such as headaches, blurred vision and difficulty walking. During our medical screening process we will ask a series of relevant questions to assess your condition and offer the most competitive insurance quote, including questions about treatment such as a shunt procedure to drain away excess fluid or linked conditions such as epilepsy

Hydrocephalus travel and holiday insurance

Our aim is to provide 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 existing medical conditions. Regular travel insurance is not usually designed to include cover hydrocephalus, which means should you require medical attention or need to cancel for any reason that’s directly or indirectly linked to your condition, a regular policy may well decline your claim.


If you’re planning a holiday and have hydrocephalus which is being controlled by a shunt or if you've had an endoscopic third ventriculostomy procedure, 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. Once declared, if any complications were to arise either prior to or during your trip which are deemed related to your condition then you would be fully covered.


When travelling abroad with hydrocephalus, it's advisable to keep a copy of your medical records to hand and your medical alert ID. If medical treatment is required, this will avoid any language barriers and ensure you get the appropriate treatment as quickly as possible. We operate a 24hr emergency medical assistance line which should always be your first port of call in a medical emergency, find more details in your policy wording. Common symptoms such as headaches and vomiting can be exaggerated when travelling abroad due to the warmer climates and your urge to try new foods!
