Alzheimer’s Disease Travel Insurance

Remember

  • Tell your insurer about any pre-existing medical conditions to make sure you’re fully covered
  • Consider covering everyone travelling in your party in case you have to cancel
  • Take a copy of your travel insurance documents with you

If you’re among the estimated 500,000 or people with Alzheimer’s disease in the UK then you might have found it hard getting a cheap travel insurance quote. This is because many major travel insurance policies do not cover pre-existing medical conditions. You’ll find though, that as a specialist, Fish is able to source travel insurance for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

  • Single and annual multi-trip cover
  • 24/7 emergency assistance
  • Covers emergency replacement of prescription medicines

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and is a condition which, through the death of brain cells (known as atrophy), can cause symptoms such as memory loss, lack of co-ordination, mood swings and mobility issues. It is a progressive disease which disproportionately affects older people.

Do I need to declare Alzheimer’s disease as a pre-existing medical condition when buying travel insurance?

Yes. If you have had a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease then this must be declared as a pre existing health condition when seeking a travel insurance quotation. Failure to disclose a diagnosis could render your travel insurance invalid and leave you liable for medical bills and associated costs should you require treatment whilst abroad.

Will having Alzheimer’s disease prevent me from getting travel insurance?

Having Alzheimer’s disease or any other form of dementia shouldn’t stop you from getting travel insurance. However you should be aware that many travel insurance policies targeted at the mass market will not cover this condition. You can secure effective and competitively priced cover from a broker, such as Fish, that provides specialist travel insurance for people with pre-existing medical conditions and/or disabilities. We will help you source your choice of European or worldwide insurance for either single or multiple trips.

Information and support for people with Alzheimer’s disease

The campaigning and research charity, the Alzheimer’s Society, offers information and support to people affected by Alzheimer’s disease through a personal diagnosis or as a carer, partner or family member of someone with the disease.
