Frequently asked questions
What will affect the price of your policy?
We determine the price of your policy on many factors. These include: where you’re travelling to, how long you’ll be there, your age as well as any other medical conditions you may have.
Single trip policy or annual multi-trip policy?
If you’re going on two or more trips in a year you may benefit from purchasing an annual multi-trip policy. An osteoporosis annual multi-trip travel insurance policy offers cover for unlimited tripsfrom the UK to your holiday destination within a year. The maximum duration for these trips varies between policies but is typically between 31 to 45 days.
If you need a longer trip duration or if you only plan on travelling once within a year, then a single trip travel insurance policy may better suit your needs.

Tips for travelling with osteoporosis
If you have osteoporosis, then you’ll be aware of the risks and problems that can arise as a result of the condition. Because of this, the idea of travelling abroad may be daunting. However, providing you take the right precautions and preparations, you can keep safe and avoid issues while travelling. This means you can enjoy your holiday while managing your osteoporosis.
Big Tick’s osteoporosis travel tips
- Travelling abroad should not pose too much of an issue. Airline travel, train travel and cruises should all be suitable for someone with osteoporosis. Travel operators will also try to accommodate any requirements you need regarding your osteoporosis. This includes any mobility issues you may have. Travelling by ferry may pose a problem if seas are rocky. However, providing you have secure seating and assistance if necessary, ferry travel is also possible.
- If possible travelling with someone who can offer assistance if you need it could make your journey easier.
- Carrying luggage can be a concern for some people with osteoporosis. If carrying luggage is something that concerns you then there are companies that organise your luggage to be picked up from your home and taken to the airport. This can take a lot of the strain out of travelling abroad.
- Coach travel is also sometimes favoured by people with osteoporosis. This is because of the benefit of having luggage loaded and unloaded for you.
- If you have suffered a fall, fracture or broken bones, speak to your GP regarding long distance travelling. It may not be suitable in some cases and they may advise waiting until you’ve healed fully before taking a trip. Travel should be avoided until your GP is happy you can tolerate any additional stress or strain and are fit for travel.
Location and osteoporosis
- Try travelling somewhere with good infrastructure. Also, if you have mobility issues be sure the location has good accessibility. Well maintained pathways and roads will help ensure you’re not putting unnecessary strain on yourself. Travelling somewhere familiar can also be a good idea.
- Playing sport can put you at risk of injury. So, it could be important to be realistic about the severity of your osteoporosis and the level of risk an activity poses.
- Drinking alcohol is also very common when on holiday. While it’s still fine to enjoy a drink, it may be worth thinking about how much you can drink without risking losing balance. Drinking too much could lead to accident or injury.
- Be sure to wear the appropriate footwear with non-slip soles, and ensure you take extra care on any excursions or activities. If you are unstable on your feet and plan on sightseeing, ensure you have a wheelchair with you, or use a walker or walking stick for added stability.
- If you’re travelling abroad with osteoporosis then getting specialist osteoporosis travel insurance is important.
