Travel insurance cover when you are pregnant
Being pregnant is not an illness and it certainly doesn’t prevent you from travelling abroad for a holiday, but you should make sure you are properly covered by your travel insurance.
Suffering pregnancy complications abroad which result in emergency medical treatment could work out costly if you are not covered by insurance.
All travel insurance policies from Total Travel Protection will provide our standard levels of cover for you to travel when pregnant, up to 28 weeks for a single pregnancy or 24 weeks for a multiple pregnancy, so long as your airline or transport provider is happy to carry you and you are not travelling against your doctor’s advice.
From 29 weeks (25 weeks for a multiple pregnancy) there are some restrictions to cover, please see the details below.
There is no extra charge for travel insurance if you are pregnant and you don’t need to declare your pregnancy when you buy your policy.

It is essential, if at the time of booking your trip you are aware that you are pregnant, that you ensure that you are able to have the required vaccinations for that trip; no cover will be provided for cancellation in the event that, after booking you discover travel is advised against, or you are unable to receive the appropriate and required vaccinations for that country.
