Getting travel insurance to cover vertigo

Vertigo isn't actually a condition in itself and normally has an underlying cause such as Vestibulitis (viral infection of inner ear), Benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo (BPPV), Meniere's disease, Multiple sclerosis, Malignant or Benign brain tumours, Migraines, Strokes or Auto-immune inner ear diseases. However as it can affect your ability to travel no matter which condition is the cause it can be declared and covered on your travel insurance policy. Add medical cover by declaring any and all pre-existing medical conditions on our system, including your vertigo and its cause. It's easy to do, all you need to do is search for vertigo, then answer the related questions including what the underlying condition then add any other conditions and we will then be able to provide a selection of travel insurance quotes specific to your requirements. Remember also that when travelling in Europe, it is important to make sure that you also have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

What does including Vertigo on your medical travel insurance cover?

Travel insurance policies that cover vertigo will cover you if there are any complications relating to your vertigo or its underlying condition while you are on holiday. You will have access to a 24 hour emergency medical assistance or help line, with operators fluent in many languages who can speak to medical staff for you.
