Will Travel Insurance Cover My Pre-existing Condition?

by Steve Dasseos on September 27, 2008

Will travel insurance cover me? I’m going to Ireland in October. I was treated for cancer beginning last October. The treatment ended in July, but see my doctor quite often due to side effects. I paid for my trip in March. It is too late to get travel insurance? Others have told me I can get it, but I want the Guru’s advice. Thanks, Shauna

Hi Shauna, I hope your side effects end soon.

Unfortunately, yes, it is too late to get travel insurance to cover your pre-existing medical condition. The deadlines were 14 or 21 days after your initial trip deposit.

And, if anyone tells you travel insurance will cover anything with your pre-existing condition, I suggest you get it in writing. It’s easy to make verbal promises.

I hope this makes sense. If you want the right travel insurance advice, call us at 1-888-407-3854 and we'll help you figure it all out.
