Arthritis travel insurance covers you if you have any of the various types of arthritis and wish to travel with peace of mind. This type of insurance covers you for medical emergencies, which is vital to prevent unexpected medical bills and give you the support you need if you have any medical problems while on holiday.
Did you know that 10 million people in the UK live with arthritis? The two most common types are rheumatoid arthritis, which currently 700,000 people within the UK live with, and osteoarthritis, which 8.5 million people within the UK live with.
Every year we help people get rheumatoid arthritis travel insurance, as well as osteoarthritis travel insurance and psoriatic arthritis travel insurance. The issues caused by travel with arthritis can include swollen joints, aching muscles and cartilage breakdown. So it’s important to make sure that you can travel to your favourite places knowing you are fully covered in case you need to seek medical attention while abroad.
We recognise that arthritis has many forms and varies in its symptoms and severity. We tailor your policy based on the type of arthritis you have and its severity to ensure your policy meets your needs at a fair premium.
When completing your quote it’s important you declare your arthritis, whether it’s osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, so that you’re covered for any potential complications while you’re abroad.
As part of our quote process, you’ll be asked to provide information about your arthritis and any other medical conditions you may have. This may include:
You’ll also answer questions about your trip length, destination and personal details. This information will then be used to determine your premium. We then search our panel and list suitable quotes in price order for you to review.
A number of factors are used to calculate the premiums we offer. These include destination, trip duration, and age, as well as pre-existing medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Yes, it’s important to get comprehensive travel insurance for arthritis that will cover you if you get ill and need treatment while you’re abroad. It’s also important if you need to cancel your trip as a result of your arthritis.
There are over 100 different types of arthritis. However, whether you need travel insurance for psoriatic arthritis, travel insurance for rheumatoid arthritis, or travel insurance for osteoarthritis, we can provide you with a quote. In fact, we can provide a quote for any type of arthritis you may have.
During the quote process when you are asked to declare your medical conditions, you’ll need to select ‘add condition’. Then type ‘arthritis’ into the search bar and select ‘search’. You will then see ‘arthritis’, ‘septic arthritis’, ‘rheumatoid arthritis’, ‘juvenile arthritis’, ‘osteoarthritis’, and ‘psoriatic arthritis’ as options for you to select. Once you select one of these there will be some specific follow up questions.
If none of these match your type of arthritis we may still be able to offer you cover. Please contact our UK-based Customer Care Team via phone or online Live Chat and we can help you.
You must tell us at the earliest opportunity and, if possible before you book your holiday. To change your original medical declaration please call our Customer Care Team on 01708 339029; they will be happy to make the adjustments. In some instances, an additional premium may be required to maintain your cover.
