Information Tips and Tricks
Feel free to send us additional information so that we can share it with others
Having pre-existing medical conditions/OI doesn’t always mean you can’t get travel insurance or that it has to be expensive. It simply means that you need to look a little deeper when doing your research. You can start your research with these two companies who have covered people with OI in the past. This is not taking into account your particular destination, circumstances or needs.
Know your medical history
Each insurer has different terms and conditions.
Some will ask for medical history in the past ten years and others, for the past six months.
It is advisable to check how much of your medical history you have to disclose so that you can be confident
that your policy covers you should anything happen.
The conditions covered and additional costs that apply vary between insurers.
There are some conditions that insurers will not cover.
This does not mean that you cannot take out travel insurance. It simply means that any claim arising from, or related to that condition will not be covered.
