to introduce comparisons for pre-existing medical conditions for travellers


People with pre-existing medical conditions often find it a lot harder to find and buy suitable travel insurance for their holidays because there is less choice available. Although there are a number of specialist providers offering such insurance, sometimes finding the best quote is quite a challenge, and it is often not as easy as finding a standard travel insurance quote.

One of the problems with finding such insurance policies is that many comparison websites do not include details of the best deals as they do with standard travel insurance.

However, that has now changed after introduced a new comparison service which will allow people with pre-existing medical conditions to compare premiums in exactly the same way as they would for standard insurance.

The new comparison service was launched on May 14, and as a result people with pre-existing conditions will no longer have to go searching for numerous quotes from various providers, but can instead find the right quote from just one search.

It is very important for people with pre-existing conditions to find the right insurance for their trips. If not, they could end up facing a huge bill when they try to make a claim.

Kate Rose, who is the head of travel insurance at, said that not everyone has a perfect medical record but that this “shouldn't prevent [them] from enjoying travel as much as anyone else”.

She also highlighted the fact that many travellers may keep quiet about their condition in order to save money, but then if they need to make a claim they can end up with a void policy as a result.
