It is possible however, to get the right cover for you, as specialists in travel insurance for people pre-existing medical conditions like AllClear can accommodate your needs.

What is depression?

Depression is a clinical condition which can cause a wide range of symptoms including lethargy, insomnia, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating, reduced sex drive, anxiety and tearfulness. It is frequently seen as an “invisible disability” due to a lack of understanding which confuses depression with “being a bit down” even though it is often a highly debilitating and persistent condition due to a lack of understanding. Treatments include cognitive behavioural and other therapies and SSRI – selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

Do I need to declare depression as a pre-existing medical condition when buying travel insurance?

Yes. Do not be afraid or embarrassed to disclose your diagnosis. It is important when applying for travel insurance that you fully disclose any pre existing health conditions you have and depression and related mental health issues such as anxiety are no exception. If you do not declare your illness then it may mean your travel insurance and that could leave you liable for any emergency medical treatment you may need whilst travelling.

Will having depression prevent me from getting travel insurance?

Having depression won’t stop you getting cover, although it is possible that some insurers may charge you more and/or place particular restrictions or limits upon your cover. Thankfully there are specialists like AllClear who specifically focus on sourcing travel insurance for people with pre-existing medical conditions and employ specially trained staff who will not only seek out the best possible quote but treat you with courtesy and respect.

Information and support for people with depression

If you suffer from depression it is important that you seek help and understand as much as you can about this highly prevalent mental health condition. Both the Mental Health Foundation and mental health charity MIND provides useful information on mild and major depression and bi-polar disorder, as well as more practical support. See also the NHS website for symptoms, causes, treatments and advice on living with depression.
