Travelling with Huntington's disease, or HD (formerly Huntington's Chorea or HC), can be daunting. With the wide range of symptoms it can cause and the potential to progress and get worse while abroad, the stress of dealing with medical costs or cancellation costs should you not be able to go is enough to put many off. This is where medical travel insurance can help. Adding medical cover to your policy and declaring any pre-existing medical conditions allows us to show you policies that will cover you for these. When travelling in Europe, it is also important to make sure that you have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
With a travel insurance policy that covers Huntington's disease, in the event any complications whilst on holiday you would be able to access a 24 hour emergency medical assistance line, with operators fluent in many languages who can speak to medical staff wherever you are. Expenses such as ambulance and hospital admission costs, and repatriation to the UK, also tend to be covered by the medical expenses section of a policy. Cancellation cover would also mean that if you were deemed unfit to travel before your holiday you would be entitled to make a cancellation claim.
Our online medical screening makes it easy to compare travel insurance that covers any pre-existing medical conditions you might have. When entering your details you will be asked some questions relevant to your conditions, such as any related conditions they may have, whether it has interfered with your activities or daily living at all, and any treatments or surgeries you have undertaken. The answers you provide will allow us to quickly assess your current health situation, so that we are able to provide you with travel insurance quotes that will provide the correct cover for you.
