Claiming travel insurance
Travel insurance can also be obtained by persons with a disability, though usually at a higher cost. It generally will not provide cover for pre-existing conditions, such as cancer, or for any terminal illnesses. You should always declare any pre-existing condition to your travel insurance provider, because if you don't you won't be covered in the unfortunate event that it causes you problems during travel.
Travel insurance claims advice
Travel can be unpredictable, so it's always a good idea to get travel insurance. However, the terms and conditions vary between insurers, so make sure you have a good idea of what you are—and aren’t—covered for before you begin your trip, and before you attempt to make a travel insurance claim.
If you're having difficulties with a claim, our travel insurance lawyers have a wealth of experience working out the fine print in travel insurance policies and can help you get your full entitlements.
