Epilepsy Travel Insurance Policies
For travellers who suffer from epilepsy, it is essential to always have the correct travel insurance cover on hand. It is important to advise your broker about your condition to ensure the correct cover in the event of a medical emergency while travelling.
Prepare for your journey ahead of time to ensure you have the correct medication to cover not only the trip itself but with some extra in-hand in case of loss or delays in your journey back home.
Medical Travel Insurance
While your travel insurance policy covers basic medical care, travellers should ensure they have a list of their medications handy at all times, including both brand names and generic brands, dosages etc., to ensure easy replacement of medications in foreign countries. In case you should suddenly become unwell while away, carry a card noting your condition to aid in the correct medical attention. It is also a good idea to consult your doctor prior to travelling to find out if any vaccinations required for the trip will have any impact on your epileptic condition.
In the event of a last minute cancellation due to your health, your finances are protected, giving you the opportunity to book again with no financial loss.
Should you be travelling with a group of family or friends, consider taking out a group policy, as this will give peace of mind for the whole group in the event of a medical emergency. For those who travel on a regular basis, consider an Annual Multi-Trip Package, to save both money and to make planning a little easier.
