Making travel insurance simple and easy
By: fishadmin, On: 24 May 2018
Most people love to travel and eagerly count down the days until their next trip. It’s the perfect opportunity to visit stunning new destinations or simply relax and unwind with family and friends. However, if you have an existing medical condition or disability it can be tricky getting travel insurance.
Research conducted by The Co-Op this March* among 2,000 holiday makers highlighted that one third of UK holidaymakers struggle to get travel insurance. This rises to 83 per cent of people over the age of 65, who are more likely to have existing medical conditions.
There’s also a limited choice of providers which can increase the price. Unfortunately, this means some people travel abroad without adequate cover and risk large medical bills, but for others the potential treatment costs are enough to stop them travelling altogether.
So remember, before you travel it’s best to speak to a specialist insurance company. At Fish Insurance we’re dedicated to providing affordable comprehensive cover to people with disabilities and pre-existing medical conditions.
As one of the UK’s largest disability and independent living insurance providers, we want to take the hassle out of looking for travel insurance and alleviate any unnecessary stress. Our specially designed travel health insurance policy covers most medical conditions such as a stroke, epilepsy, cancers, high blood pressure, diabetes, angina and other heart complaints.
Our range of policies are specifically designed to cater for the needs of people with disabilities and medical conditions. For instance, 24/7 emergency assistance and emergency replacement of prescription medicines. Plus, our insurance offers protection of mobility and disability equipment, providing replacement equipment in the event of a loss. And don’t forget, we can provide travel insurance for people of any age unlike many other companies.
And our easy-to-use website is designed with our customers in mind, with a wide range of clear and useful information. We’ve also compiled a Handy Hints When Travelling guide, as a reminder of the things to do before travelling and tips for whilst on holiday too.
