Choosing Disability Travel Insurance with Silversurfers

Disability needn’t be a barrier to travel – with a little forward planning, you can book a holiday that’s comfortable, safe and fun for you and your whole family.

Having the right insurance in place can give you peace of mind when you’re off on adventure.

If you have a disability or pre-existing medical condition, you’ll likely need more comprehensive cover than what a standard travel insurance policy has to offer you.

Getting the right travel insurance policy

One of the most important reasons to get specialist travel insurance if you have a disability is to ensure your policy will be valid in the event you need to make a claim.

What this means in practice is that you need to declare any medical conditions and make sure they are confirmed on your insurance policy documents. Failure to do so could mean you won’t be able to cover the costs of your medical treatment when you’re abroad, leaving you liable to pay out of pocket.

The good news is, there are plenty of options for travellers with disabilities. From single trip travel insurance to annual travel insurance, you have the ability to choose the style of policy that works best for you and have the peace of mind knowing your policy is tailored uniquely to you.
