If you suffer from epilepsy or related conditions such as fits or seizures you can travel with the ease and comfort knowing that you are fully covered by adding extra medical cover for your condition to any of our Single Trip, Annual Multi Trip or Backpacker policies.

Nearly half a million people suffer from epilepsy in the UK and there are over 40 different types of epilepsy. To ensure that you have the correct travel insurance for your particular form of epilepsy we ask our customers to fill in our easy medical screening questionnaire.
