We strive to obtain Travel Insurance for those with Crohns Disease however the condition affects you.

Most common questions:

You will need to complete a ‘medical screening’ questionnaire. This gives the insurance providers full information about your condition and general health. We will need information such as when you were diagnosed, how often you experience symptoms and how you Crohns is treated. Your answer to the questions must be honest and accurate. Withholding or giving inaccurate information can result in any claim you make regarding your Crohns being classed as invalid, leaving you liable to cover the cost of medical bills / expenses.
Insurance policies are assessed according to levels of risk, if you have a pre-existing condition such as Crohns Disease there could be more risk of you making a claim than a person with no pre-existing medical conditions. Our team of Crohns Travel Insurance experts have many years of experience in assisting people like you to find cover. We work with a panel of insurance providers so we can look around for the right cover for you.

Crohns Travel Insurance guide:

When you have Crohns Disease it can result in it being more difficult to obtain Travel Insurance, this of course depends on how the Crohns affects you personally. When answering the medical screening questions you need to answer all questions as fully and accurately as possible. This is to make sure the policy is valid if you need to make a claim. Crohns Travel Insurance applications are based on information such as:

  • When you were diagnosed with Crohns Disease
  • How it affects you day to day
  • What medication you take
  • Any hospitalisations
  • Any other related conditions

These questions form part of the ‘medical screening process’, this allows the Crohns Travel Insurance company to look at your level of risk and gives a basis for calculating an appropriate premium. Failure to give accurate and honest answers can mean a claim could be declined in the event of it relating to your Crohns during your trip or for cancellation.

Top Tips for Crohns Travel:

Before you travel some preparation is essential, especially when you are travelling with a medical condition such as Crohns Disease. Often people only have a short checklist, such as:

  • Print tickets / boarding pass
  • Check passport dates
  • Pack sun cream / sunblock

If you have a medical condition such as Crohns Disease, then it is worth giving thought to some other things in your planning.

Seek some Medical Advice before you travel

It is a good idea to have a chat with your GP, Doctor or a medical professional before you go away, just to check you are fit for travel and to be informed of anything you might need to consider while you are away with regards to maintaining the stability of your condition.

Take more than enough medication

It is a good idea to over pack when it comes to medication, just in case. A top tip if you are travelling with others is 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

You can also receive a certain level of free cover for European travel if you apply for an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) before you travel.

Case Study 1

  • Client: Male
  • Age: 39
  • Smoker status: Non-smoker
  • Medical condition: Crohn’s for gentleman
  • Cover date: 28th October 2019
  • Product type: Level life insurance
  • Cover amount: £170,000
  • Cover term: 26 years
  • Premium: £29.54

We were approached by this gentleman on the 18th October 2019 when he and his partner completed an enquiry through our website. Our advisor Mark S then called him back to discuss his life insurance needs. At this point he explained that they were looking for £170,000 of life insurance cover over 26 years to cover their mortgage, furthering this they were also looking for critical illness cover and income protection as well. Mark S then went on to ask about any pre-existing medical conditions they may both have, which is where he declared that he has recently been diagnosed with Crohn’s and that his partner has no medical issues. Due to this Mark was able to secure his partner the required cover, however the gentlemen was unable to obtain critical illness cover or income protection until 12 months has passed since his diagnosis. Due to this, Mark looked into a joint life insurance policy for the couple and managed to secure them £170,000 of cover for 26 years to cover their mortgage for a monthly premium of £29.54. This is an amazing premium considering that he has been recently diagnosed with a potentially high-risk medical condition and they now have peace of mind that their mortgage is covered should either of them pass away. Moreover, Mark S has scheduled a call once the gentleman has been diagnosed for 12 months so that he can get the full cover that he was looking for.

As a whole this was a positive outcome as they are both covered if one of them were to pass away in the future, and they have got cover for a great premium. Furthermore, the gentleman will be able to get the full cover that he wants when he has had his diagnosis for 12 months, then they will be covered for every possible eventuality.
