Travel Insurance with Parkinson’s disease

Remember

  • Consider covering everyone travelling in your party in case you have to cancel
  • Take a copy of your travel insurance documents with you

What is Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological condition caused when the brain fails to produce enough dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control movement and emotions. People with Parkinson can suffer symptoms such as tremors, slow body movements, depression and memory loss. It is a progressive condition and so symptoms are likely to become more pronounced over time. It is also incurable and so treatments are restricted to alleviating symptoms. These include medications and physiotherapy.

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

Absolutely. If you are asked to declare pre existing health conditions you must do so otherwise your insurance may be invalid. If you are not asked to make such a declaration check the small print as it might say that the policy does not cover you for health problems for which you have already been diagnosed. Remember, if you travel without valid insurance you may be responsible for emergency medical treatment costs and other bills that a policy might otherwise have covered.

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

Having Parkinson’s shouldn’t stop you getting travel insurance. It is a long term, chronic condition and this affords you protection under anti-discrimination and equality legislation. Whilst this means that insurers are legally obliged to offer you insurance they may still choose to charge you more or place restrictions upon it. You should discover that a specialist like Fish can source you highly competitive travel insurance that offers you appropriate protection.

Information and support for people who have Parkinson’s disease

Not only is Parkinson’s UK the largest funder of research into the disease, it provides information and support to people who are affected by the condition. The NHS website also provides a through overview of the disease and other neurological conditions.
