Pre-existing medical conditions

At Saga, we recognise that as you get older, your medical needs change – our travel insurance is designed with this in mind. We cover many pre-existing medical conditions, which means if you suffer a flare up while you’re away, you’ll be insured for up to £10 million emergency medical treatment.

Other insurers may not provide cover for pre-existing conditions, and with treatment abroad being costly it is best to be properly covered. With Saga, you can focus on enjoying your holiday with the reassurance that you're adequately insured.

Saga Travel Insurance also includes:

  •     Up to £10 million emergency medical cover
  •     Our emergency medical cover also includes the cost of getting you home if medically necessary
  •     Up to £1,000 (£25 a day) for associated expenses during your stay in hospital
  •     24 hour travel assistance helpline before and during your trip.

24 hour travel assistance helpline

In the unfortunate event that you fall ill or become injured whilst away, our friendly UK-based travel assistance helpline is available 24/7. Our team can help you locate the nearest doctor or hospital and give you advice about whom you need to contact.
