Will I be covered under my Platinum or Gold credit card travel insurance policy if I have a pre-existing condition?
Any pre-existing conditions, diagnosed or not, are automatically excluded from the policy. However you can contact TOWER Insurance to apply for cover of pre-existing conditions through a telephone based medical assessment process on 0800 422 280 (Gold cardholders) or 0800 114 117 (Platinum cardholders). If the condition(s) are covered and you want the Pre-Existing Condition Cover to apply, then a premium will be charged to your credit card. TOWER Insurance will confirm the outcome in writing.
Terms and conditions apply to travel insurance, please refer to the Gold or Platinum travel policy wording for further details. If you are aged over 79 years you are not eligible for cover under the policy. Other exclusions and limitations apply.
