Travel Insurance for an Underactive Thyroid
If you suffer from an underactive thyroid (also known as hypothyroidism) we are pleased to tell you that you do not need to purchase any additional medical cover. You will be covered for this condition on any of our Single Trip, Annual Multi Trip or Backpacker policies.
Travelling with your Condition
Known scientifically as hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid is usually a minor condition, but it can cause some unpleasant side effects like tiredness and depression. If you are taking a much needed holiday and need medical care for your underactive thyroid, we will provide comprehensive medical and cancellation cover, catering to your specific needs. This is a no-screen condition, so all you need to do is quote and pay - no medical screening necessary.
If you have any other medical conditions, please read our Pre-existing Medical Conditions Insurance page to see if you will need additional cover for those.
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 cover for pre-existing medical conditions, sports, cruise or business.

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.
