Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the condition. When you take out your policy, we'll ask you about pre-existing medical conditions. If you have one, we'll ask you a few more questions about it and see if we can offer you cover. If we can, your premium may be increased, so we'll offer you two prices - one with cover for the condition, and one without.

If you choose to have pre-existing medical condition cover, you will of course be covered for this while abroad - but you must let us know if your condition changes between taking out your policy and the start of your travels.

We are the first insurer in the UK where you do not have to declare HIV as a pre-existing medical condition if you have an undetectable viral load and have been stable on medication for the previous six months. 

If you don't disclose a pre-existing medical condition when you take out your policy, you won't be covered for any claims relating to that condition.

If you are HIV+ and:

  • On antiviral treatment for more than three months and no new antiviral drug is planned, and
  • Your CD4 count exceeds 350 or you have been advised by a doctor that CD4 monitoring is not necessary, and
  • Your latest viral load is less than 50mls or undetectable,

then you do not need to declare HIV as a pre-existing medical condition, and if that is your only medical condition then you do not need to go through medical screening. If you do not meet the conditions above or have other pre-existing medical conditions, then you will need to continue the medical screening and declare those pre-existing medical conditions.

PrEP
You do not need to tell us if you are taking PrEP, provided that you have not previously had a positive test result for HIV. If you have previously had a positive test result for HIV, then please see the question above “What if I am HIV+”. 

Birth Control
You do not need to tell us if you are on birth control tablets, unless this has caused any health issues.

The purpose of this question is to clarify if you have any conditions that might need to be declared and/or which might (only might) result in increased premiums. Not all conditions increase the risk of falling ill while you are travelling but some might.

There is a help note beside the "pre-existing medical conditions" question (click on the"?" hover button beside the question), clarifying that if you are trans you should answer 'yes' to this question. This leads to three more questions to understand if a more detailed medical screening process is needed. One of the questions asks if you have seen a specialist, consultant or doctor in the last 12 months. If the answer to this question is yes, you will need to proceed to the medical screening process.

In the medical screening process, you are asked to tell us any pre-existing medical conditions and procedures. To be clear, there is no 'condition' of being trans. If you are trans, there may be certain specific procedures you have had as part of transitioning which may increase your risk of falling ill while travelling, and which therefore should be disclosed as part of the application process. Pre-existing conditions or procedures will not necessarily mean that your premium will increase, but they must be disclosed to allow us to accurately calculate the correct premium.

Yes, we do. We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, and the communities we serve have a diverse range of family units. If you're a single parent taking the kids away, we'll give you a discount so you can spend more on the kids - or more on yourself!.
