Anxiety travel insurance

Anxiety travel insurance covers you if you or someone you know is living with anxiety 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.

Around 5% of the UK population are estimated to live with anxiety. If you’re one of those people you may find that some travel insurance policies will not provide you with comprehensive cover. At AllClear, we offer specialist travel insurance that covers anxiety. In fact, we’ve offered cover to over half a million people living with pre-existing medical conditions since 2000. So, you can travel knowing that with anxiety travel insurance, if anything goes wrong, AllClear have you covered.

Will you be covered if you’re travelling during the COVID-19 pandemic?

There are three things to check so that you can make sure you're covered:

  • You must be fit to travel
  • The FCDO must NOT have advised against travel to your destination - check the FCDO travel advice
  • You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements

You can then be covered for emergency medical expenses and cancellation for a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, with AllClear travel insurance with enhanced Coronavirus cover. Existing policyholders should read our Frequently Asked Questions if your trip is affected by Covid-19.

Frequently asked questions

Yo no longer suffer with anxiety. Do you still need to declare it?

Yes. You will need to declare anxiety if you have ever received treatment for anxiety. Please see our medical warranty for more information.

Single trip or annual multi-trip?

If your trip duration may exceed 45 days and you’re only planning on travelling once within a year, then a single trip travel insurance policy may be right for you.

However, if you’re going on 2 or more trips in a year you may benefit from purchasing an annual multi-trip policy. An anxiety annual multi-trip travel insurance policy offers cover for unlimited trips from the UK to your holiday destination within a year.

The maximum duration for these trips varies between policies but is typically between 31 to 45 days. However, trip extensions are offered by selected providers.

Tips for travelling with Anxiety

Travelling is a liberating experience. It’s a good opportunity to say goodbye to the day to day stresses of life and work. If you live with anxiety, then it’s likely that this is even more important to you. You should do your best to be aware of the potential sources of stress of planning a holiday and of going abroad. With that in mind, we’ve put a list together to help you enjoy you’re holiday to the fullest.

  • Check with your doctor before travelling. This is obvious advice, but you should check that your doctor doesn’t have any reservations about your trip. They have the benefit of experience, and they know how other patients have reacted to the stresses of travel and holidaying in specific destinations.

  • Choose a suitable destination. Make sure that your destination appeals to you, and that you’ll get a chance to pursue your own interests. This is especially relevant if you are travelling with someone else – don’t let them dictate the itinerary. Instead, find a balance that both of you can enjoy. Frustration can cause stress and worry, which is counterproductive for anxiety sufferers.

  • Plan ahead. Arriving without a plan can be confusing and lead to stress. A good travel guide will help you to plan out your trip and make sure that you don’t miss out on anything you want to do or see.

  • Pick a good travelling companion. A calm, friendly travelling companion can be a source of strength and help to banish anxiety when you’re on holiday. On the other hand, a negative companion can help to conjure stress up from nowhere. So choose someone you will feel happy to spend time with

  • Listen to music. Sitting in silence during a flight leaves your mind with little to do but play the what-if game. Music can help you relax and unplug the brain for a bit. A book is a good idea too, although it does require a little more concentration.
