Traveling with epilepsy? Latitude has you covered

Epilepsy can strike at any time, denying you the peace of mind to make plans for the future. At Holiday Extras, we can provide affordable travel insurance for pre-existing conditions so you can focus on enjoying your trip, whilst we take care of the finances.

Why choose Latitude epilepsy holiday insurance?

Last year, more than 60,000 people had their precious time away protected by Latitude travel insurance. Epilepsy is just one of the pre-existing conditions that we cover. Anyone up to the age of 85 can get insured for annual or single-holiday policies. You’ll be covered for cancellation to £10k, lost luggage to £2k or medical assistance up to £15 million. We even have staff on hand 24 hours a day to take your phone calls if you have any problems on your holiday.

How Latitude can help you book epilepsy travel insurance

As you read this, you’re just 7 clicks away from being fully protected by travel insurance with epilepsy cover. Looking for a personal touch? Our trained advisors are waiting for your call and they could set up your insurance in under 10 minutes.

Latitude has you covered when epilepsy strikes

If you’re in a new country with a different climate, this can have an affect on your medication. You may find yourself having seizures where you were previously in remission and these can occur in exotic locales where your footing is not as secure as you’d like. If this leads to an injury, or if there are any complications from your seizure, you could find yourself landed with a hefty hospital bill. Latitude has you covered for £10 a day up to a maximum of £200 for staying in if you get stuck in hospital, even more through our premium policies.

Top tips for travelling with epilepsy

  • Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your holiday and ask for a note confirming your condition and treatment, including doses.
  • Epilepsy Action advises you to notify airline staff of your condition before takeoff so that they can react quickly if you have a seizure.
  • Changes in sleep patterns can cause seizures, so make sure you’re well rested in your travels and take care when changing time zones. You’ll also need to work out the best schedule for your medication.
  • Keep a bottle of water with you as dehydration can cause seizures.
