About the process

How does the medical screening process work?

In order to provide quotes for the most suitable medical travel insurance, we need to get an understanding of your medical history. That’s why medical screening is a very important part of the process.


You’ll first be asked a few questions to establish whether or not you need to declare your pre-existing medical condition(s) to providers. If you do, you’ll be able to search and add your specific condition(s) and only answer questions relevant to your condition.


These questions range from how many hospital visits you’ve had in the last 12 months, to what sort of medication and treatment you need to manage your condition on a daily basis. The answers you provide will help us determine the severity of your condition based on a simple scoring system.


It’s important that you answer these questions as accurately as you can. This will help us to appropriately match you with insurance providers who offer cover for your needs.

Your age, chosen destination and duration of your trip will also impact the quote and the level of cover needed.

How accurate are the Medical Travel Compared results?

We connect straight into all of our providers, so the quotes you’re offered are accurate.

What happens to your personal information?

When you use our travel insurance services, it is necessary for us to collect some of your personal information, so that we can provide you with quotes based on your personal circumstances.


Your personal information can be used for a variety of reasons such as providing you with a quotation, understanding how we can improve our services to you, entering you into prize draws and sending you useful communications if we have your consent. We’ll never knowingly share your information to any third parties other than to allow us to provide our services.


Our privacy policy will help you understand your rights and our obligations, how we collect and use your data and our commitments to protect our data. By using our website, you are agreeing to our privacy policy.


We also have a cookies policy. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you browse a website. They help you move through our website easily, remember who you are and provide you with the best experience possible. Without cookies we would not be able to provide you with a quote. By using our website, you are agreeing to our cookie policy.

How do we make money?

You might be wondering how we make money by providing this service.


Once you’ve chosen the product that’s right for you, the insurance provider you’ve chosen will pay us a commission. This commission is a percentage of the cost of the insurance policy. We’re not owned by any insurance companies (and we don’t have any favourites), so the commission we receive doesn’t influence the providers we display.
