Cheap Diabetes Travel Insurance
Diabetes Travel Insurance
Millions of people of all ages in the UK have diabetes but still live normal and full functioning lives. Going on holiday is something that most people take for granted, but if you have diabetes it can be hard to find travel insurance, making planning a holiday frustrating.
There are two different kinds of diabetes, type 1 which affects a wide variety of people of all ages, and type 2 diabetes which tends to affect older people. People with both types require on-going medical treatment and medication and so its vital to ensure that you have adequate travel insurance to cover your condition.
Luckily diabetes care has become easier and more affordable in recent years, meaning that insurers are more willing to cover people with diabetes. However, you’ll still need to tell your insurer details about your condition before you travel, including how long you’ve had diabetes, any treatment you’ve received recently and your general fitness to travel. This will ensure that if you need any emergency medical treatment when you’re away that you’ll be fully covered. Your insurer can also arrange to cover any expenses if you end up staying abroad for longer than anticipated, and can fly you home in the case of a medical emergency.
In addition, remember to take enough medication with you when you’re away and if you’re still worried then ask your doctor to certify that you’re well enough to travel.
