Glandular fever, also known as infectious mononucleosis, or mono and colloquially as "kissing disease" is a type of viral infection that mostly affects young adults and typically lasts two to three weeks. It is a condition that we at medical travel insurance can help you find cover for along with many other conditions you might have. Adding medical cover to your policy and declaring any pre-existing medical conditions is easy, simply search your conditions and answer the questions for each and we will be able to provide a list of policies specific to your needs. Also please remember when travelling in Europe, it is important to make sure that you have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
With a travel insurance policy that covers glandular fever, if there are any complications or it gets more severe while you are on holiday you have access to a 24 hour emergency medical assistance line, with operators fluent in many languages who will be able to speak to medical staff for you. The medical expenses section of a policy often covers additional expenses such as ambulance and hospital admission costs, and repatriation to the UK. Perhaps the most important section for cover here is for cancellation and would mean that if you were deemed unfit to travel before your holiday, for reasons relating to your glandular fever or any other declared pre-existing conditions, you would be entitled to make a claim.
Our online medical screening process makes it easy to compare travel insurance that can cover glandular fever along with any other pre-existing medical conditions you might have. When entering your details you will be asked some questions relevant to your condition, such as any related conditions you may have, whether it has interfered with activities or daily living at all, and any treatments or surgeries you have undertaken. Your answers allow us to assess your current health situation, so that we can provide you with travel insurance quotes that provide the cover that is correct for you.
