When obtaining a quote for Travel Insurance to cover this condition, you will be asked a number of questions. These will include:
- Do you take regular medication for this?
- Have you ever had to have a procedure to widen a narrowing of the oesophagus (food pipe)?
- Limit your alcohol intake as this will increase your stomach acid levels.
- Do not smoke as this will also increase your stomach acid levels.
- Make a note of what foods to avoid while you are away and avoid foods which are known to increase heartburn such as spicy foods, citrus and coffee.
- Print off a list of foods to avoid and keep it with you while away.
- If you have been prescribed medicine for your condition such as antacids then make sure you have enough with you to last the entire length of your holiday.
- Do not wear clothing that restricts the stomach such as tight fitting belts or slenderising garments.
- Be careful when lifting heavy suitcases. Bend with your knees and lift with your legs rather than bending at the waist.
- To prevent straining during bowel movements whilst away take a stool softener.
Global Health Insurance Card
The GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card) replaced the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) on the 1st January 2021.
You can use this card to access medical healthcare abroad. This includes state healthcare including emergency treatment, treatment for existing medical conditions, routine maternaty care, oxygen therapy, kidney treatment and many more healthcare requirements.
Please Note: This is not a substitute for Travel Insurance, as there are restrictions on cover and you might have to pay some costs. It is important to note that this card will not cover Repatriation.
Covid-19 / Coronavirus Cover
Our Travel Insurance can cover you to travel provided the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) is not advising against all, or all but essential travel to your destination and it is not on the red list.
All customers must follow the advice of the FCDO at the time of travel and for the duration of their trip. This includes returning to the UK if the FCDO changes their travel advice based on the risks presented at the time. https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
