Colostomy travel insurance

Colostomy travel insurance covers you have lived with a colostomy for a long time or have recently had the procedure done and wish to travel with peace of mind. This type of insurance covers you for medical emergencies, even those related to COVID-19, which is vital to prevent unexpected medical bills and give you the support you need if you have any medical problems while you are away.

AllClear has covered over 500,000 people with medical conditions since 2000, including colostomy, and getting a quote is easy with our simple quote process.

Having a colostomy shouldn’t stop you from travelling. If you are concerned about when you can travel, it’s a good idea to check that your doctor declares you fit enough to travel. For example if you’ve only recently had the colostomy due to a certain condition, your doctor may recommend you wait before travelling.

Planning and protecting your holiday abroad

Things to know before you go:
  • Remember to check the latest travel advice from the FCDO for your destination. You will have no cover if you choose to travel against FCDO advice, unless that advice relates specifically to Covid-19 (check our Covid FAQs  for more details)
  • Check any entry requirements and quarantine requirements for your chosen destination
  • Choose a Travel Insurance policy that includes Covid-19 Cover
  • For information on how Covid might affect your trip, visit our dedicated FAQs page

Getting a quote for colostomy travel insurance

When you go through our quote process you’ll be asked questions about your colostomy. The first two questions you’ll be asked are:

How long ago was your colostomy performed?

Why was the colostomy performed?

In answer to the second question, you’ll have a few options to choose from. These options include medical conditions which may have been the reason you required a colostomy, including bowel cancer, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and more. If your condition isn’t listed, you’ll see the option to select ‘other’.

The next questions will vary depending on your answers to the previous questions.

You’ll also be asked questions about your trip length and destination then once you’ve been through the quote process, you’ll be able to compare quotes from multiple providers all in one place.

While we do offer AllClear branded products, we also have a panel of travel insurance providers meaning you get to choose between them. Before you choose your preferred policy, you will also be able to read through each policy booklet to find out specific points of cover and everything else you need to know about the policy you’re buying will be detailed here.

Simple 3 step quote process

1. Call us or click a quote button on our site

Once you are ready to start the quote process, the first step is to provide your personal details and information about your holiday plans.

2. Complete our simple medical screening process

You then declare the medical conditions for you (and any other travellers) and answer the specifically designed medical questions.

3. Get your quotes

You will then get your quotes and can either proceed to buy, or save your quote, at this stage.

What if you have a complication with your colostomy while on holiday?

If you have complications with your colostomy on holiday, as long as you’ve declared it, you’ll be able to seek medical help for this.
