People with mental health problems face huge premiums or no access to travel insurance

Most people with Mental Health do not realise that they need to disclose this to their travel Insurance provider.
A spokeswoman for the Association of British Insurers (ABI) said: “Travel insurance is widely available for people with a range of long-term and serious conditions, including mental health conditions.
“As with pre-existing physical conditions, some insurers may consider them a risk factor and this can push up premiums because of the potentially high cost of treatment that is needed overseas. We are already working with the FCA and other industry and consumer bodies on how to improve signposting for customers with pre-existing medical conditions.”
