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.
Why do you need hypothyroidism travel insurance?
If you have hypothyroidism then you’ll need to declare this when taking out travel insurance. Even if you believe your condition poses no risk you will need to declare it. This is because if you need to make a medical claim while abroad and you have failed to declare hypothyroidism as a pre-existing medial condition, you could be facing some significant medical bills!
We ask questions to determine how much of a risk your hypothyroidism is. This means we can assure you that your cover and the premiums on offer will be fair and representative of your condition.
