Get Insured on Long Haul Trips even with a pre-existing medical condition with Medical Travel Compared


LONG HAUL DESTINATIONS NOT OFF LIMITS FOR TRAVELERS WITH PRE-EXISITNG CONDITIONS

In the biggest holiday-booking month of the year, MedicalTravelCompared.co.uk, providers of the stand-alone travel insurance comparison site for people with pre-existing conditions, is reminding travellers that long-haul destinations may not be off-limits.

An estimated 12.5 million UK holiday-makers searched for summer deals in January last year [1] and, with the abolition of Air Passenger Duty (APD) for children under the age of 12 in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement [2], this figure is expected to be even higher this year.

Vicki Moses, Head of Marketing for MedicalTravelCompared.co.uk, said: “January is traditionally the month for booking a Summer holiday – people love to have something to look forward to in the dark winter days and they hope to grab an early bargain.

“But many travelers with ore-existing conditions think that their health makes long-haul destinations out of reach because they won’t be able to get travel insurance so either end up holidaying in the UK or settle for travelling on the Continent.

“Of course, when you live with pre-existing medical conditions there are certain areas which can be more costly and even difficult to obtain cover for, but the panel of 22 specialist travel insurers we feature on MedicalTravelCompared.co.uk will look at all the factors when offering insurance such as your current health status and how your condition is managed.”

MedicalTravelCompared.co.uk specialises in comparing travel insurance for those with pre-existing medical conditions and was launched to tackle the difficulties associated with securing appropriate travel insurance for these travellers.
