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.

Important information for hernia travel insurance

Do you need single trip or annual multi trip travel insurance for a hernia?

This very much depends on your travel plans and your personal circumstances. If you are seeking travel insurance after hernia surgery for example then there could be restrictions as to where and how far you can travel.

If that is the case then single trip cover would probably be your best option.

Single trip

Generally these prove cost effective where you plan one relatively short trip or a series of short trips.

It could be that hernia and travel insurance cover is required for a much longer trip duration. An example might be a three month cruise. This trip length would exceed the maximum length of stay for any one trip for an annual multi-trip policy. You should therefore select a single trip hernia travel insurance option.

If a series of overseas trips are planned within a calendar year then an annual multi-trip policy would probably work best.

Annual multi-trip

Are you travelling to a number of different countries in different regions of the world? If so, you must make sure that your hernia travel insurance annual multi-trip policy covers you for each region.

As the policy runs for 12 months it is vital that you notify us of any change in your health. This is very important. Please contact us immediately if you need to change your medical declaration.

Please note that there could be an additional premium to pay as a result of the change to your hernia travel insurance policy.

What other factors could affect the premium you pay?

The premium you pay to obtain travel insurance with a hernia can be affected by your age. Risk, sadly, does increase with age. Deciding to travel further afield or to countries where medical expenses are very high such as the USA, will also impact on premium. We will take the length of your trip into consideration too.

Finally the more complex your medical conditions the more likely it is that the premium will increase.

We need to assess the risk we are covering. By completing the screening process and declaring all conditions you help us to do that. By telling us where you want to travel to, how long you want to go for, how old you are and what medical conditions you live with, we can in most cases produce a range of competitively priced and fair quotes.
