IBS travel insurance

IBS travel insurance covers you if you are living with IBS 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.

Since launching in 2000, we’ve covered over 1300 different medical conditions. We provide IBS travel insurance to travellers for annual multi-trip and single trip policies. We’ve covered many travellers declaring irritable bowel syndrome as well as other digestive conditions.

With a variety of cover options to choose from, it is important that you get the right cover to suit your needs.

IBS is often a condition that people don’t bother to declare, says Head Nurse, Kay Greveson : “It’s often something which people get used to living with.”

But this is not necessarily the case: “Travelling invariably means a disruption to routine and possibly a change in time zone, so tablets may be delayed or missed altogether. Heat, physical exertion, change in diet or a tummy upset can all have an impact.

So what might be a stable medical condition at home could potentially be a problem abroad that results in a medical emergency claim.”

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.

IBS travel insurance and medical screening

We provide a quick and easy to follow screening process saving you both money and time.

The first part of the quote process involves answering questions on your medical history. Remember to declare any medical conditions that you have or have had.

Then, you will receive quotes for your travel insurance with IBS. We offer products from other specialist IBS travel insurance providers as well as AllClear. Different travel insurance providers offer varying levels of cover. So, it is important to review a provider’s policy wording before buying IBS travel cover.
