How Do You Make The Right Travel Insurance Choice?

How Do You Make The Right Travel Insurance Choice?

With the Brexit deadline looming, familiarise yourself with our travel guide below to ensure you are buying the right travel insurance for you and safeguarding your health abroad.

There is nothing better than booking your next adventure; whether you’re hitting the slopes, taking in the cultural insights on a cruise or soaking up some rays on a beach holiday. 

If Europe is on your destination shortlist, after the 31st January 2020 Brexit deadline, people should clarify if the EHIC cards reciprocal agreement is still in place before travelling. If it isn’t, British Citizens will no longer have access to reduced-cost (sometimes free) state-provided healthcare, to which we have become accustomed. 

Therefore ensuring you have the right travel insurance for you and your journey has never been more important. 

If you suffer from a pre-existing medical condition and are looking to fly abroad, we would suggest obtaining a bespoke quote before booking to ensure that the right cover is available and to allow you to plan within your budget.

It’s important to know before you book your holiday that you have all the correct information. If you are not sure of your medical history, ask to check medical records at your registered GP surgery, to ensure your pre-existing medical declarations are accurate to the best of your knowledge. You need find out what type of travel insurance is required and be confident your needs are meet. The doctors will be able to confirm whether you are fit to travel and what measures to take; additional prescription medication if on an extended holiday, vaccinations required whilst visiting a far-off country, precautionary blood thinners for a long-haul flight or whether you are fit to fly with your conditions. 

To ensure you have the right travel insurance in place for your needs, we’d suggest speaking to a specialist, like Insurance Choice, who can talk through your options and try to put your mind at ease.
