What types of travel insurance does OK To Travel provide?
OK To Travel is a little different from most travel insurance companies because it offers travel insurance products for those suffering from pre-existing conditions, including things like cancer.

Are there any restrictions with OK To Travel insurance?
Single trips can be no more than 184 days and multi-trip policies have a limit of 31 days for any one trip. You also must have been living in the UK for at least six months and be registered with a UK doctor to take out a policy.
You are not covered for things like war or terrorism, apart from medical emergency cover. This is common across most travel insurance products. However, some companies can cover you for this. Check out our article on travel insurance with terrorism cover and for dangerous areas for more information.
There is a list of hazardous activities that are not covered, including mountaineering and rock climbing, unless you pay an additional premium.
Make sure you read your policy documents thoroughly so you know exactly what you are covered for.
Does OK To Travel provide travel insurance for over 65s?
Yes. For a trip lasting up to 92 days, there is no upper age limit on OK To Travel's insurance policies. For single trips that last more than 92 days, the upper age limit is 75.
Does OK To Travel provide travel insurance for pre-existing conditions?
OK To Travel provides bespoke policies for those suffering from cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, leukaemia and heart conditions.
These policies calculate your insurance premium based on your condition - for instance, the type of cancer you are suffering from and what your treatment plan is.
Bear in mind it does not guarantee it can cover all conditions and prices for cover medical conditions are often higher. It's always worth shopping around and comparing prices and policies.
OK To Travel may be able to provide cover for terminal prognoses, provided it is more than 6 months from the return date of your holiday. Most insurance companies won't be able to offer any cover if you have a terminal condition.
OK To Travel has an online screening process when you get a quote where you'll have to answer a number of questions about your condition. If it can't give you an online quote you may have to call its customer services line and answer some more questions.
We're working on a travel insurance product for people suffering from cancer that will only need a sign off from your doctor. Join our travel insurance for cancer patients group to keep up to date with this product.
Aside from their bespoke policies, OK To Travel says it will consider all medical conditions, which it defines as anything you have suffered from, had treatment for or had an appointment in relation to in the past two years.
