Travel Insurance for Arthritis

If you suffer from arthritis, however advanced it is, you'll know how your comfort and mobility can be affected. So we want to encourage you to travel with more ease in knowing that you are fully covered for arthritis. You can tailor your travel insurance policies by adding extra cover for pre-existing medical conditions including arthritis.

* If you are over 74, please see our Over 74s travel insurance page.

Types of Arthritis we Cover

We offer coverage for:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteo arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Other forms of arthritis

To add extra medical cover to your travel insurance, just complete the quick and easy medical screening process after your initial quote. You simply answer a question on your condition in a completely secure system where you can be assured confidentiality. 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 - If you or someone in your party has reduced mobility due to arthritis, then meet and greet airport parking is the most convenient way to get to the airport.

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. By completing our online medical screening process you will receive a tailor made quote specifically for your condition that can be added to your policy easily. You can also add extra cover for sports, golf, business, weddings and cruises.

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

Don't want to add extra protection for arthritis?

If you have a medical condition we strongly advise that you declare it. However, if you do not wish to add the extra cover, you can choose to exclude cover for arthritis from your policy after you have completed the easy online medical screening process.

Add Extra Cover

You can customise your policy further with pre-existing medical condition cover, sports and a number of other specialist add-ons.

Do You Need to Declare a Medical Condition?

If you have a pre-existing medical condition it’s vital that you declare it or you could invalidate your entire policy. Insurers don’t like to think that you’ve hidden things from them and you may be surprised to find out that many common medical conditions such as allergies can be added without any additional cost. What’s more, you even have the option to declare a condition but then exclude it from your policy. What this means is that you’ve told your insurer about your condition but decided not to cover it, so you will be covered medically for anything unrelated to that condition.

Do You Need Extra Sports or Specialist Cover?

A decent policy will include cover for many sporty or adventure activities as standard. However the more adventurous or dangerous the activity, like winter sports, the more likely it is that you will need to purchase additional sports insurance. You can customise your policy further a number of other specialist add-ons.

Hazardous Sports and activities

If you want to play sport on holiday, make sure you do so safely by adding the correct sports grade to your policy.

100+ sports are covered at no extra cost on our policies!
