Travel insurance tip: Take your policy wording with you when you travel
When you are travelling with a pre-existing medical condition or you are over 65 it is important that you have appropriate travel insurance in place before you travel, it’s also very important that you take your travel insurance policy wording with you so that you have all the details handy.
If something happens whilst you are away and you need to make a claim on your travel insurance, read the terms and conditions of your travel insurance policy to see if there’s anything you need to do in order for your claim to be accepted. For instance:
- If you need medical treatment, you may need to call the emergency support line before receiving medical treatment so that they can authorise cover.
- If your bag is lost or stolen you will generally need to obtain a police report to support your claim.
- If your flight is delayed, get a letter from your airline confirming the length of delay and the reason for the delay
- Keep receipts for any medical treatment you pay for upfront.
In order for your travel insurance claim to be accepted you will need to provide evidence of what happened and any associated costs to your travel insurer. It pays to be prepared and we recommend you read your policy wording so that you have all the supporting documentation that your travel insurer may require.
Our tips on travel insurance claims apply equally to those of you who have travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions covered, those without any medical conditions and whatever your age, under 65, over 65, or over 80.
