Travel Insurance for Epilepsy & Seizures

Specialist medical travel insurance designed for people who suffer with seizures or epilepsy

Epilepsy travel and holiday insurance


If you live with epilepsy and are planning a holiday, we’re confident that we can help you get the cover you need and at a competitive rate. Here at OK To Travel, we pride ourselves on being understanding and sympathetic to individual circumstance and we know only too well how epilepsy effects people in different ways, from some people taking medication and having well controlled epilepsy, to others having regular seizures. We also know that epilepsy can often be caused by head injuries, strokes, brain tumours, brain haemorrhages and other types of medical conditions, but rest assured, with us being epilepsy travel insurance specialists, we will try to tailor a quote based on your individual needs. We’re here to help!


There are lots of cheap and cheerful holiday insurance packages out there, the trouble is, they don’t often cover potential risks related to epilepsy and pre-existing medical conditions. You may feel that your epilepsy is well controlled and therefore you don’t need to have extra cover, but if you exclude it, you leave yourself open to paying out for expensive medical treatment, hospital accommodation costs, flights home and repatriation costs if things do go wrong.


Having epilepsy travel insurance cover is the best way to ensure you’re protected abroad and with OK To Travel, you will find our quotes reflect the level of cover you need, so if you do have well controlled epilepsy and have been seizure free for some time, your travel insurance premium will be generated accordingly.
