Medical check ups are not covered in any case. We also cover children under 2 years old at no additional cost, so we will be here for you and your growing family. And our no-excess policy - on all medical expenses and all but one non-medical expense - extends to each family member that is covered on your policy.

    Pre-existing conditions

    Pre-existing conditions

    A travel insurance policy is designed to cover acute illness and injury that occurs after you've started your trip, so to be covered, it must be unexpected.

     

    In some instances a chronic and/or pre-existing condition is covered by your travel insurance. We recommend that you send an up-to-date medical report and our application form for pre-existing conditions to Bupa Global Travel and our in-house medical consultants will evaluate if your particular condition is covered.

    Why don’t you ask for my travel destination when I purchase my policy?

    Generally, we don’t need to know where you are going because we cover you almost anywhere in the world, including the USA and Canada.

    However, we only provide cover in IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN on a pre-approved case by case basis, so you need to contact us if you plan to travel to one of these countries. Any cover approved for these countries will incur an additional premium.

    Does your travel insurance cover me for travel within my home country?

    No, our travel insurance does not offer cover whilst you are travelling in the country in which you reside.

    Is pregnancy considered a pre-existing condition?

    No. With Bupa Global Travel Insurance you will be covered for acute illness and accidents, whether you are pregnant or not, but prenatal care such as general check-ups and scans are not covered.

    You will be covered for travel up until and including the 36th week of your pregnancy – or until the 18th week,if the pregnancy is the result of fertility treatment or you are expecting more than one child (Please see art. 23.1.7 in our conditions).

    Premature birth is covered within the periods of pregnancy mentioned, if it can be documented that you have not had any complications related to the pregnancy prior to your trip. If you have had complications during pregnancy, apply for pre-existing conditions cover.
