I recently took out travel insurance with Approved Partner LV=. Unfortunately I had to claim due to my sudden ill health. They paid in full without any delay, which helped to stop my anxiety and I was most impressed with the service.

Below you can find the answers to questions you may have about our Travel Insurance
1. How do I know if my pre-existing conditions have been covered?
Your policy schedule will show all the information that you've declared about your pre-existing conditions. If we're unable to provide cover for these this will be shown as endorsements that will explain that there is no cover in any way related to the pre-existing conditions or symptoms and will state the section of the policy the restrictions apply to. The endorsements can be found on your policy schedule.
2. What is your definition of a pre-existing medical condition?
Our definition of a pre-existing condition is explained in detail under the ‘Health declaration and health exclusions in the . Basically it is:
• any heart condition, breathing condition (including asthma), circulatory condition (including strokes or high blood pressure), gastrointestinal (digestive tract) conditions, bone or joint conditions or any type of cancer, regardless of how long ago these were suffered or;
• a medical condition or ailment that an insured person is suffering from or has suffered from in the last 12 months
3. Do you cover pre-existing medical conditions?
Cover for pre-existing medical conditions isn't automatic but can be selected. If cover is needed, all medical conditions for everyone named on the policy must be disclosed. If we’re unable to provide cover for anyone’s specific conditions these will be shown as removed from cover in the endorsement sections on your policy schedule.
We may charge you for providing cover for pre-existing conditions. To remove any confusion at the point of claim, we’ll either be able to provide cover for all of a person’s pre-existing conditions or none of them. This means we won’t cover some conditions and not others. For this reason it is very important that we're told of all conditions (for everyone on the policy), including symptoms and any investigations. If we're unable to cover a person’s pre-existing conditions the premium will reflect that this cover has been removed.
4. Do I need to take my travel insurance documents with me on holiday?
We suggest that you do take a copy of your policy documents with you on your trip. At the very least, please take both your policy number and the 24 hour assistance telephone number so we can help you should an emergency arise.
5. What is the maximum age limit?
The annual multi-trip policy is available for purchase by anyone who is over 16 years and under 80 years of age. The single trip policy is available for purchase by anyone over 16 years of age - there is no upper age limit on the single trip policy. If you're under 65 years of age, the single trip policy can cover you for up to 366 days. If you're 65 years of age or over, the single trip policy can cover you for up to 90 days.
