We’ve teamed up with Medical Travel Compared – But who are they?

We work hard to ensure that we have a wide selection of medical travel insurance products for you to compare. Only specialist travel insurers are eligible to sit on our panel, so we’re confident that no matter your age, destination or type of medical condition, we should be able to assist in finding the cover that meets your individual needs.

How does Medical Travel Compared work?

  1. We’ll ask you for details of your trip, what cover you need and the details of your travelling companions. You’ll then be able to safely and securely declare any pre-existing medical conditions using our sophisticated online screening tool – no need to call a provider or declare your condition in writing – it’s really that easy!
  2. We’ll ask you to enter your details only once and then we’ll share these with our panel of over 30 specialist providers. You’ll then be able to compare the prices and features of each policy, and can even filter your quotes, making it easier to find the cover that is right for you!
  3. And don’t worry If you need to think about your decision, we’ll send you an email with your top quotes. You can then revisit your quotes without needing to enter all your details again (however, prices are live and are subject to change).
  4. Once you’ve chosen the policy that is right for you, we’ll transfer you directly to the insurance provider. There you will be able to confirm your details and make a secure payment. Your chosen provider will send all your policy documentation directly to you.

How does the medical declaration process work?

In order to provide you quotes for the most suitable travel insurance, we need to get an understanding of your medical history.

That’s why declaring your medical history is a very important part of the overall process.

In terms of how it works, you’ll first be asked a few questions to establish whether or not you need to declare your pre-existing medical condition(s) to providers. If you do, you’ll be able to search and add your specific condition(s) and only answer questions relevant to your condition.

This can range from how many hospital visits you’ve had in the last 12 months, to what sort of medication and treatment you need to manage your condition on a daily basis. The answers you provide will help us determine the severity of your condition based on a simple scoring system.

Therefore, it’s important that you answer these questions as accurately as you can – since this will help us to appropriately match you with insurance providers offering cover for your specific needs.

It’s also important to bear in mind the fact that your age, chosen destination, and duration of your trip will also impact the quote in terms of the level of cover needed.

Can I trust the Medical Travel Compared results?

We connect straight into all of our providers – so the quotes you’re offered in real-time are highly accurate.

Obviously we can’t always guarantee that the quote will remain the same if you leave and return at a later time – as providers can change their rates whenever they like.

If you go back and make a change to your application, it’s also likely that your quote could change. That being said, it’s good to have the flexibility to return to the application if you suddenly remember something important.
