Colostomy travel insurance
Whether you have lived with a colostomy for a long time or have recently had the procedure done, it’s important that you have specific colostomy travel insurance to cover you when travelling.

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.
The key benefits you can get
- Medical expenses covered up to £15,000,000.
- Cancellation and Curtailment covered up to £25,000.
- Personal Belongings covered up to £3,000.
- All medical conditions. All ages.
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.
