Easy Travel Insurance Recognises Mental Health Sufferers Deserve Quality Travel Insurance

July 12, 2017 Insurance No Comments Email Email

It may come as a surprise to many Australians that clients who develop a mental illness after they bought a travel insurance policy and were forced to cancel their trip or change their plans, or who develop a mental illness while on a trip, were not covered by their travel insurer.

That remains the case with the majority of travel insurance companies in Australia, but according to Easy Travel Insurance MD, David Ringsell, that has all changed with travel insurance market leader, Easy Travel Insurance, through its comprehensive, quality range of travel insurance polices.

Mr Ringsell said, “It always seemed rather an anomaly to me that the onset of a mental illness that caused a change of plans or cancellation, or  that happened during a trip, was not covered, whereas other illnesses would be, with in fact mental illness remaining uncovered even today by most travel insurance companies”.

He added, “I am sure we all know someone affected by mental illness and while mental illness may not be as obvious an illness as say a broken leg or arm, it still deserves to be covered as a valid travel insurance claim”.

Mr Ringsell said that he was particularly pleased that Easy Travel Insurance now offers policies that cover mental illness before and during a trip, with Mr Ringsell adding that the decision to make these changes eradicate the anomaly he has been very much concerned about for some time.
