What is the age limit for Bupa Global Travel insurance?
Bupa travel insurance policies cover you up to the age of 70.
What is the maximum length of travel on a single trip or annual travel policy?
The single trip insurance plan allows you to buy coverage for one trip that can be up to 365 days long.
The annual multi-trip travel insurance covers you for as many trips as you like in one year, as long as each trip is no longer than 30 days. If one of your trips extends beyond 30 days, you can extend your insurance to cover the extra days by purchasing extra days online.
Where am I allowed to travel with my policy?
Bupa will cover you almost anywhere in the world including the U.S. However; they only provide cover in Iraq and Afghanistan if they have pre-approved you. Please contact us if you plan to travel to one of these countries. Any coverage approved will incur an additional premium (i.e., cost more).
Can I get annual travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions?
Travel insurance is designed to cover acute illness and injury that occurs after you’ve started your trip, so to be covered, it must be unexpected.
In some instances, a chronic and pre-existing condition is covered by your travel insurance. Bupa recommends that you send an up-to-date medical report and an application form for pre-existing conditions and Bupa Global Travel will determine whether your particular condition is covered.
Is pregnancy considered a pre-existing condition?
No. With Bupa Global Travel Insurance you will be covered for acute illness and accidents, whether you are pregnant or not, but prenatal care such as general check-ups and scans are not covered.
You will be covered for travel up until and including the 36th week of your pregnancy – or until the 18th week, if the pregnancy is the result of fertility treatment or you are expecting more than one child (Please see art. 23.1.7 in the conditions).
Premature birth is covered within the periods of pregnancy mentioned if it can be documented that you have not had any complications related to the pregnancy before your trip.
