    Why buy AXA medical travel insurance?

    It’s important that you’re happy with your level of medical holiday insurance, especially if you’re anxious about any pre-existing medical conditions. Any pre-existing medical conditions you’ve told us about, which we’ve agreed to cover, are subject to eligibility. AXA offers you peace of mind when you’re travelling. It’s travel medical insurance you can rely on, giving you rapid emergency treatment if you're injured, and, if required, getting you safely home too. It's valuable cover, and it can be taken as a single or multi-trip travel insurance or added to annual cover.

    Why choose AXA medical travel insurance?

    Life doesn’t stand still, there are still so many wonderful places to discover. And we get that. Buying travel insurance when you have an existing medical condition is painless with AXA. Our advanced online medical screening enables you to declare your condition quickly and confidentially without having to call. Many medical conditions are covered at no extra charge, and by answering a few simple questions, you should be able to get a tailored medical travel insurance quote in minutes.

    Should you have a medical emergency, we’ll make sure you get the help you need, wherever you are, whenever you need it.
