Insurance companies may charge more for travel insurance if you have kidney disease so it is often worth shopping around and getting quotes from a variety of insurance providers. Our supporters have, over the years, given us details of insurance companies that have offered them travel insurance. However, insurance companies factor in many different varieties when assessing individuals so results will vary from person to person.
Companies will normally require details of any medical conditions, and giving as much information as you can helps to find cover that meets your needs. It is very important you check what is and what isn't covered by your insurance. Quotes may be high because they are calculated on the likelihood of you needing to make a claim. Some companies exclude claims relating to pre-existing medical conditions, and some may cover them at an additional cost.
Don’t put off buying insurance until the last minute. Arrange it as soon as you have booked your travel so that you are covered in case you need to cancel. Remember to take your insurance documents with you in case you do need to make a claim when you are away.
All of the insurance providers in the list below have had positive feedback from kidney patients, and many of them specialise in covering travellers with pre-existing medical conditions. However, some patients have reported that some of the organisations refused to cover any complications arising out of receiving dialysis abroad so please check with the insurer first.
