Travel and holiday insurance for people with epilepsy

Approximately 600,000 people in the UK are prescribed anti-epileptic drugs and these can range from precautionary medication due to a brain condition or those who suffer from more prolonged seizures. We understand the importance of finding appropriate travel insurance to cover your condition whilst travelling, as seizures can be triggered for many reasons including fatigue, excitement and anxiety.

It is important to inform us of your diagnosis, treatment and any related complications so that we can provide a fully comprehensive insurance policy, meaning that if you were to suffer an epileptic fit your policy will cover for emergency medical treatment, cancellation or if your holiday is cut short.

Epilepsy travel and holiday insurance at a fair price

Many are prescribed anti-epileptic drugs due to conditions such as head injuries, brain tumours or strokes whilst others suffer regular and more prolonged seizures. We understand the varying affect this condition can have on day to day life and will ask relevant questions to assess your diagnosis. It’s important to declare your condition whether you are applying online or over the telephone, to ensure we have all the information on record in the event of a claim.

Our prices are based on a person’s current state of health at the time of taking out a policy, so if you live with epilepsy or have a history of admissions due to seizures, we will tailor a policy that specifically meets your individual needs, making sure you have the right level of cover for your trip.
