The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, running from the back of your pelvis, through your buttocks, down both legs, and ending at your feet. Sciatica is the name given to any sort of pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. Most people find it goes away naturally within a few weeks, although some cases can last for a year or more particularly with other related conditions. Adding medical cover to your policy and declaring any pre-existing medical conditions is simple on our system, simply search for each condition and answer the questions and we can provide a list of policies specific to your needs. Please remember when travelling in Europe, it is also important to make sure that you have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
With a travel insurance policy that covers your sciatica, if there are any complications or the pain 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 can 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. Cover for cancellation would mean that if you were deemed unfit to travel before your holiday, for reasons relating to your sciatica or any other declared related pre-existing condition, you would be entitled to make a claim.
Our online medical screening process makes it easy to compare travel insurance that can cover your sciatica 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.
