Travel Insurance with Alzheimer's

  • 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?

    No. If you have Alzheimer’s disease or any other form of dementia then you can still purchase 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, such as Fish. We will help you source your choice of European or worldwide insurance whether for a single or multiple trips.
