Worldwide travel

Cheap globetrotting in style

A few handy tips before take-off:

  • If you are travelling with medication check the airline requirements and follow the correct guidelines if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
  • Remain mobile on lengthy journeys, whether you're flying, driving or taking a plane or ferry. Sitting still for long hours can exacerbate medical health problems, and can even cause deep vein thrombosis.
  • Restrict your plans in the immediate aftermath of a long flight. When your plane arrives, you could be tired and jetlagged, so allow yourself some time to relax and recover.
  • Arrange your accommodation and transport from a port or airport ahead of time, this could allow you the extra time you need to recharge before you start exploring.

Frequently asked questions

Travelling with medical conditions

It can be difficult to find a cheap provider of worldwide travel insurance whilst suffering with a medical condition.

As long as you have disclosed all pre-existing conditions - we are more than happy to provide comprehensive cheap worldwide cover on both an single trip and annual basis, though please note age restrictions may apply. Please read our travel insurance with medical conditions page to find out more.

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

In the unfortunate event that you require medical treatment that is in anyway related to your undisclosed condition, then all of your claims will be rejected and your travel insurance policy will be rendered invalid, if you haven't declared a pre-existing medical condition on your policy.
