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 it’s important to have travel insurance with MND
Standard travel insurance policies will often exclude cover for motor neurone disease or will decline you cover, so it’s vital that you declare your condition to a specialist insurance provider so that you have comprehensive travel insurance for MND in place.
If you don’t declare your condition and unfortunately have a medical emergency whilst travelling, you could be left paying an expensive hospital bill, as any claim could be invalidated. In some countries such as Spain and the USA, hospital costs can be extremely high.
Getting a quote for travel insurance with MND
Firstly, you will need to input your personal details and information about your trip. Secondly, you will then declare your motor neurone disease and any other medical conditions that you live with.
Then you will be asked some simple questions related to these conditions (but you will not need to know the names of any of your medications).
The types of questions asked will cover:
- Your type of motor neurone disease.
- Whether you use mobility aids?
- Whether you have ever had any problems with breathing or swallowing.
- Have you had any unplanned hospital admissions in the last year.
Once you have completed these questions, a selection of quotes will appear for you to consider. You have the option to save the quotes (which expire after 7 days) or proceed to make your purchase. At this stage, you can compare the different cover levels and benefits so that you can make an informed choice.
