What if I choose not to declare my existing medical condition?

In the unfortunate event that you require medical treatment that is anyway related to your undisclosed condition, then all of your claims will be rejected and your travel insurance policy will be rendered invalid.

Bear in mind that medical treatment abroad can cost thousands. For example, an air stretcher back to the UK from Australia can cost between £15-£20k. Be sure to visit our travel insurance with medical conditions page and make a small yet wise investment.

We don't currently offer a policy specifically tailored to backpacking but our single trip and annual travel insurance policies suit how many backpackers choose to travel. On a single trip policy you can explore your destinations for up to 365 days - the perfect year abroad with fully comprehensive cover. Or if you'd prefer to travel intermittently with trips home in between, our annual travel policy means financial cover for unlimited trips across 12 months - just make sure you pop home every 23 days.

Holiday Extras' Travel Insurance reviews

It's always a bore having to put in all the information but once it was done l was very pleased with the price. As a suggestion It would be nice to have the offer of having a printed version sent by post.

Mr Paterson, 11 May 2016, 8 out of 10

Very quick and easy to access

Ms Simpson, 11 May 2016, 9 out of 10

A little confusing. I declared that one of my medical conditions required further treatment but was not asked what that was. I needed to phone where it was explained that if my treatment required me to cancel my holiday that cancellation would not be covered by the policy. That was OK with me as I could request a delay in the treatment - so it would be helpful if that aspect of the questioning could be clearer in the on-line application process.

Mr Cottrell, 11 May 2016, 8 out of 10

Very easy to work through and very good value

Mr Goddard, 11 May 2016, 10 out of 10

Quite straightforward, apart from an apparent glitch at the payment stage which resulted in my receiving two identical policies! However, this was quickly and efficiently sorted out in a quick phone call.

Mr Dinmore, 11 May 2016, 9 out of 10

Simple procedure cheap prices

Mr Burrow, 11 May 2016, 9 out of 10

Very easy to book good value

Mr Malkin, 12 May 2016, 9 out of 10
