Why is travel insurance different because of epilepsy?

If you suffer from epilepsy then it’s important to take out the right travel insurance to make you’re covered with you’re abroad. If you are planning to travel in the future and you need insurance then here’s a bit about how it works. Anyone applying for travel insurance will be asked questions about their health, including questions about epilepsy.

You’ll need to make sure that you provide accurate information about your condition so that you’re properly covered. If anything happens to you while you’re abroad and you failed to disclose this information then your claim could be invalid, and potentially costly.

If you need travel insurance and you’ve got epilepsy, then you’d be protected if you have any issues or seizures while you’re away. Medical treatment in Europe or globally can be extremely expensive which is why travel insurance is so important.

Some travel insurance policies for people with epilepsy will provide:

  • 24-hour medical emergency helplines
  • Medical treatment abroad
  • Replacement medication
