What medical conditions do I need to declare?
It’s important that you’re honest about your medical conditions when taking out travel insurance to ensure that you’re covered if the worst were to happen. You will need to tell Avanti Travel Insurance if you’ve ever had any circulatory or heart/cardiovascular conditions, even if you’re cured of the condition or if it’s under control by medication. If you’ve ever had these conditions, you’re at higher risk of something going wrong while you’re abroad. You also need to declare conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, even if they’re minor.
Avanti Travel Insurance will also ask you if, in the past two years, you’ve had any of the following or are awaiting:
- Symptoms of a medical or psychological condition
- Taken, been prescribed or awaiting surgery or treatment, including medication and procedures
- Medical investigations or consultations
- Non-routine check-up and follow-up appointments
If you suffer from a health related accident abroad and need to make a claim, Avanti Travel Insurance will ask you to provide your medical record from the past two years, so it’s important that your health record matches what you have declared otherwise your claim may be rejected.
