To give you an accurate and fair price for your policy, our team of medical experts take into account a number of factors.
Level of risk - Our insurers assess the severity of your condition, doing so based on the answers you provide during your screening.
Age - The likelihood of having to make a claim increases generally tends to increase according to the age of the traveller, so this is taken into account when we draw up your policy.
Destination - In some locations, the only suitable healthcare facilities are privately run and so cost more. For such destinations, you may find that the price of your policy is slightly higher to reflect this.

Tips for travelling with DVT
As a sufferer of DVT, there are a number of things you can do to make travelling as comfortable as possible and avoid aggravating your condition. When travelling by plane:
Keep active, do some stretches - Take as many walks as you reasonably can. If it isnt possible to take a walk - perhaps you have a window seat - there are a few discrete arm and leg stretches you can perform from your seat without unnerving your fellow passengers. Its recommended to do these at least every half hour or so.
Get a window seat - If possible, try to get a window seat, as this will make it easier, and therefore more likely for you to get up and walk about.
Compression stockings - These are worn below the knee and are graduated, applying greater pressure on the lower leg. This increases the blood flow to the lower leg making it harder for blood clots to form.
