Approximately 90% of people with the condition are suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Travel insurance for type 2 diabetes, is available subject to the screening process and all other terms and conditions outlined in the policy wording.
If you have type 2 diabetes we understand that it means your pancreas does not produce enough insulin or your body simply doesn’t react to insulin properly. This potential high risk that this poses, means that you must declare the condition on your travel insurance. High blood sugar levels can prove fatal, so it’s important that your condition is well managed. Declaring your condition to your insurer puts you both in the best position. If you fail to declare a medical condition it could make you policy invalid at the point of claim!
If 90% of the UK’s diabetes sufferers are diagnosed with type 2, that leave 10% of diabetics being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Although a much smaller percentage, that still leaves 390,000 people with type 1 diabetes! Travel insurance for diabetics type 1 is available subject to our quick, non-invasive medical screening process and standard policy terms and conditions.
If you have type 1 diabetes, you were likely diagnosed at a much younger age than someone with type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is a condition where the pancreas simply doesn’t produce any insulin. Similarly to type 2 diabetics, you too are at risk of high blood sugar levels, which can prove fatal. Travelling with diabetic travel insurance means declaring your condition to the insurer and as a consequence, ensuring you have medical cover in your policy.
