    Autism is a developmental disorder which affects the way a person communicates and interacts with others. It is not a singular but a spectrum condition meaning that those diagnosed with autism may exhibit different symptoms and behaviours. Many people with autism also have learning difficulties. Because it is a broad spectrum condition people with autism can live totally independently or require varying levels of support. Whilst incurable it is treatable through behavioural and educational therapies.

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

    Yes. You should always be open and honest with your insurer about any pre-existing medical conditions you or anyone you are seeking to insure has, and autism is no exception. Failure to declare could have serious consequences as an insurer may choose to refuse to settle any later claim you make on your policy.

    No. Autism is a long term (or chronic) condition and as such is covered under disability discrimination legislation. This means it is illegal for insurers to refuse you cover although they may impose certain conditions on your policy and/or charge you more. As a company which specialises in serving for people with disabilities and pre-existing medical conditions we can source you effective and competitively priced travel insurance, on a single trip or annual basis.
