Travel confidently with Coeliac disease travel insurance

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.

With the correct diet and travel insurance, travellers with coeliac disease can enjoy adventurous holidays. Going gluten-fee is the first step, but coeliac disease travel insurance provides extra assurance: if the worst happens, you will receive the treatment you need.

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 about cover

What if you currently have symptoms of coeliac disease?

We’re pleased to say we can still offer you a quote.

Just be sure to check with your doctor that you are fit to travel.

What if you're on a waiting list for treatment?

If you’re on a waiting list for treatment – such as surgery – be sure to answer so during the initial medical warranty questions.

Unlike some other providers, we give you the ability to include the optional extra of Waiting List cover.

What if you're only being investigated for coeliac disease?

While the true cause of your symptoms are unknown we are unfortunately unable to offer cover.

However, when your diagnosis is confirmed we’d be happy to offer you a quote.

What if you need to come home early?

All of our policies include repatriation to your Home Country.

Which means if any medical condition causes you to cut short your trip, you will be covered.

Do you need to declare other medical conditions which you have?

We offer fully comprehensive travel insurance for all of your medical conditions.

However, you’ll be glad to know you don’t have to tell us about every condition you’ve ever had!

Our medical warranty will tell you exactly which conditions we need to know about at the start of your quote. Or you can take a sneak peak here: Understanding the medical warranty.

Why we won’t ask questions about your coeliac disease

Coeliac disease is a medical condition we don’t ask questions about during the medical section of your quote.

Instead, simply entering the name ‘coeliac disease’ completes the declaration.

We recognise that coeliac disease is manageable, and whatever the circumstances of your condition, we’d be happy to offer you a quote.

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.

Tips for travelling with coeliac disease

While there is no cure for the autoimmune condition , diet and a solid routine can help control the symptoms of coeliac disease while you are travelling.

  • One of the most important gluten free travel tips is to pack your own food. Prepare yourself for a situation where you can’t find anything suitable to eat!
  • Remember, when it comes to packing snacks for planes, liquids or gels are not allowed. Also, don’t use aluminum foil as it will interfere with the x-ray machines.
  • Consider staying in an accommodation with a kitchen where you will be able to prepare your own food.
  • It is possible to download and print a card explaining the requirements of your diet in detail in 54 different languages. You can show it to the server when ordering food at a restaurant so that they understand what you can and cannot eat.
What exactly does "gluten free" mean?

A gluten-free diet does not include the grains wheat, barley, rye, or varieties of these grains.
