What if you have a pregnancy related complication?
Cover is provided for claims relating to complications arising from pregnancy and childbirth, which are listed in our policy booklet. You will not need to declare the complication when completing the screening process. You will be covered provided you comply with all other requirements of pregnancy as detailed in the policy booklet.
If your complication is not listed, please contact us on Live Chat for further help.
Is child birth covered?

Therefore, on AllClear Gold and Gold Plus policies we can only provide travel insurance for pregnancy if, on your return date, you are no more than 32 weeks pregnant.
Annual multi-trip or single trip?
An annual multi-trip policy allows you to travel multiple times within a year. The maximum duration of these trips varies between policies. However, it is usually between 31 to 45 days.
If you need a longer trip duration or, if you only plan on travelling once in the year, then a single trip travel insurance policy may be right for you.
