Types of kidney disease

Kidney disease is a term used by doctors to indicate damage to your kidneys, even if the damage is only minor. There are a number of different types of kidney disease and some of the most common types are listed below:

  • Kidney stones
  • Kidney infection
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
  • Polycystic Kidney Disease (PFD)
  • Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD)

To find out more about kidney disease or for help and support you can visit our partner’s website National Kidney Federation.

Do I need to declare kidney disease as a pre-existing medical condition when buying Travel Insurance?

Yes, you should always declare all of your pre-existing medical conditions on your travel insurance policy to ensure that you are fully covered.

Our online medical screening process is quick and easy, simply enter the name of your condition and then answer some multiple choice questions in relation to your medical conditions. If you are unsure of a question or need help completing your medical screening you can speak to us FREE on 0800 294 2969.

Will I be covered for kidney disease on my EHIC (European Health Insurance Card)?

Your EHIC will provide limited healthcare including dialysis in some European companies, more information about the EHIC cover can be found here.

The EHIC will only provide basic cover for basic treatment and we always recommend taking out travel insurance to ensure you are covered for medical treatment including your pre-existing medical conditions and the cost of repatriation should you need to be brought home before or after your scheduled flight departs.

What will my Travel Insurance cover?

Your travel insurance policy will cover you for up to £15 million if you require medical treatment whilst on holiday and it will also arrange for you to come home before or after your scheduled flight departs if required.

In addition to this it will also cover you for the following:

  • Cancellation
  • Curtailment
  • Travel delay
  • Lost or stolen personal belongings and cash
  • Personal accident
