Most Common Questions
HIV Travel Insurance guide:
If you have HIV it can make it more tricky to find Travel Insurance, this of course depends on the details of how the HIV affects you as an individual. When giving answers to the medical screening questions you need to be as honest and accurate as possible. This is to make sure the policy is valid if you need to make a claim. HIV Travel Insurance applications are based on information such as:
- When you were diagnosed with HIV
- What are you current readings
- What medication you take
- Any other related conditions/complications
These questions are part of the ‘medical screening process’, this process allows the HIV Travel Insurance company to look at your individual details to be able to calculate a premium. If you give incorrect information this can invalidate any claim made.

Top Tips for HIV Travel:
Before you go away some preparation is essential, especially when you are travelling with a medical condition such as HIV. Often people only have a short checklist, such as:
- Print tickets / boarding pass
- Check passport dates
- Pack sun cream / sunblock
If you have a pre-existing medical condition such as HIV, then it is a good idea to give thought to some extra things in your planning.
Take some Medical Advice before you travel
It is a good idea to speak to your GP, Doctor or a medical professional before you head off on holiday, just to check you are fit for travel and to be informed of anything you might need to think about while you are away with regards to your condition.
Take more than enough medication
It is a good idea to be over prepared when it comes to your medication, pack extra in case of delays or losses. Another handy hint if you are travelling with others is to ask them to pack some of your medication in their case too, just in case you baggage goes astray. It is worth looking into whether you chosen destination has any restrictions on the type of medication you can take with you. Also do be aware if you are taking strong painkillers then you need to check whether you require a license to carry them with you.
Apply for an EHIC
