  • Jane’s Adventures with Travel Insurance-III: Covering Pre-Existing Conditions

    Filed Under: Blogging


There is a tendency to take an existing illness for granted. You have it under control and there is nothing to worry about. That is what Jane Wanderlust’s father David thought about his diabetes when he was travelling to Europe on a vacation with his family. Fortunately, the international travel insurance plan included the coverage of pre-existing clause.

It was quite impossible to follow his careful routine which kept his diabetes under control and the novelty of the rich food that they enjoyed, resulted in an increase in his sugar level which required hospitalization.

Fortunately, the Travel Gap Single Trip plan covered the hospitalization costs entirely, including the ambulance charges and the post-hospitalization medication. The family was relieved that they did not have to dip into the funds meant for holiday shopping.

There are few insurance plans which offer coverage of pre-existing conditions where travel insurance is concerned and this coverage is something that the Travel Gap Single Trip plan covers.

Travel tip: Always carry extra supplies of your prescription medication when traveling.
