Travel Insurance for Broken or Fractured Bones
Travel with the ease and comfort of knowing that you are fully covered to travel with any broken or fractured bones (not including spinal or head injuries) at no extra cost on any of our Single Trip, Annual Multi Trip or Backpacker policies. If your doctor gives you the go-ahead to travel and no treatment is expected for the duration of your trip, then you're on your way and covered.
Add extra cover for spinal or head injuries
If you have a spinal and head injury you will need to add the extra medical cover. To do this, simply complete the quick and easy medical screening process after getting a quote and answer the questions on your condition. You will then be quoted a price to add the additional cover to your policy and taken to the final payment screen.
Experts' Top Tip - * We offer cover for broken bones, but it does not include spinal or head injuries as well as travelling against the advice of a medical practitioner. You are advised to see a doctor before embarking on your travels.
Customise your policy
You have the choice of up to 4 cover levels and 4 areas of cover so that you only pay for the cover you need. You can also add extra protection for pre-existing medical conditions, sports, golf, cruises, business and weddings if you need it.
Should you have an accident abroad and require medical attention you will be covered by your policy for subsequent costs. Treating a broken bone is not always as simple as putting the broken limb into a plaster cast. Often surgery, x-rays and physiotherapy are required to aid the natural healing process.
All travel insurance policies include:
- Medical Expenses cover ranging from £2.5 million to £10 million
- Hospital Benefit cover ranging from £300 to £1,200 per day
- Personal Accident cover ranging from £7,500 to £30,000

Cheap. But not nasty!
I required travel insurance for my 13 year old daughters who are travelling unaccompanied to the USA later this year. Essential was one of the few companies I found that caters for that market and at a surprising low price. The cover is more than adequate although it has to be said that figures for the excess waivers were not so readily traceable. But got that I'd award it five stars. If we have to make a claim this review and the raring could go down as well as up.
