Travel insurance that covers pregnancy at no extra cost!
Sun Selection is a specialist travel insurance provider offering annual and single trip travel insurance with cover for pregnancy included.
Travelling when pregnant
Pregnancy is not a medical condition, so you are able to travel until you are quite late into your pregnancy. Airlines and ferry/shipping companies including cruise liners have their own restrictions due to health and safety requirements. You should check with them or any other mode of transport you propose to take before you book.
Please make sure that your Doctor and Midwife are aware of your travel plans, that there are no known complications and that you are not travelling against any medical advice.
By Air After 28 weeks most airlines will require a letter from your Doctor or Midwife confirming your Estimated Date of Delivery and stating that there are no complications. You may travel, but your travel must be completed by 36 weeks and 6 days for single uncomplicated pregnancies and 32 weeks and 6 days for multiple uncomplicated pregnancies.
By Sea Ferry companies and cruise liners have their own restrictions and may refuse heavily pregnant women beyond 32 weeks.
By Car, Coach and Train There are no known restrictions. Please make sure your Doctor or Midwife are aware of your travel plans and that there are no known complications.
Please note: Our pregnancy travel insurance does not provide cover under the Cancellation, Curtailment, Personal Accident and Medical & Repatriation Expenses sections of the policy for claims arising from normal pregnancy without any accompanying bodily injury, illness, disease or complication. These sections are designed to provide cover for unforeseen events, accidents, illnesses and diseases and normal childbirth would not constitute an unforeseen event.
