Specialist Medical Travel Insurance

 

How it Works

 

 

If you are travelling abroad for either Dental treatment, Cosmetic surgery, Elective surgery or IVF/Fertility treatment and you have travel insurance, you should check the cover provided as you may not be covered. If not, you will need a specialist insurance product.

Medical Travel Shield introduces the particular insurance you may need.

Complete the online application to receive a quote and purchase cover. Apply here.

Cover for cancellation of your trip will start from the date of issue or the day you pay for your trip, whichever is the later.

A number of the benefits are outlined in more detail on the benefits page here. Full details of the policy are stated in the insurance documents.

The Keyfacts documents includes a summary of cover and all contact details for assistance abroad and making a claim.

The insurance does not cover any travel to any country which the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have advised against all but essential travel.

You should check this advice before departing.
