Trying to find holiday insurance with diabetes can be a challenge, as it can with any pre-existing medical condition! At ERV, we’ve created our Medi-Care policies to make it as easy as possible for people with pre-existing medical conditions like diabetes, to get a quote for the cover they need for their next holiday.
We understand that there are many different types of diabetes, and so we make sure that we treat every policy holder as an individual when arranging their insurance. Our simple medical screening questions aim to help us understand your needs and offer you cover that suits your condition.
