Declaring your or your child’s allergy to the travel insurance provider is important, as failure to do so can mean that your claim is rejected, and you’ll have to cover the cost of any medical treatment yourself.
We have listed several travel insurance providers below, some information about their travel insurance and their contact details.
If you have further questions about any of the below travel insurance, we advise visiting the respective travel insurance providers website and/or contacting them via email or phone.
We hope this helps you when preparing for your travels.
