With your new addition on board, it’s important that you have the right travel insurance to look after yourself and your unborn child.

What does travel insurance cover if I'm pregnant?

If you have to cancel because you're unfit to travel and the doctor signs off on it, you can be covered for your pre-paid, non-refundable transport and accommodation costs. 

If you're traveling while pregnant, and you're suddenly ill or injured or you have an unexpected pregnancy complication (including an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage), our policies cover:

  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Hospitalization
  • Ambulances
  • Transport to get you home for ongoing treatment (if medically required)
  • Access to our 24-hour/7-day emergency assistance team

Cover for pregnancy depends on your country of residence and how many weeks pregnant you are while traveling.

For Brazilian travelers these conditions apply as long as the insured is up to the 28th (twenty-eighth) week of gestation and the complication is related to an emergency or accident.

From the 29th (twenty-ninth) week of gestation, exclusively complications resulting from personal accident will be covered.

What’s not covered for pregnant travelers

  • If you decide not to travel due to your pregnancy.
  • Childbirth at any time.
  • A pregnancy with any complications for any pregnancy prior to buying or extending the policy.
  • Routine pregnancy check-ups, e.g. standard ultrasounds and blood tests; pregnancy tests; etc.
  • Fertility treatments at any time (although we're working on this).
  • Expenses incurred in your home country.

This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. There are limits and conditions that apply, so for more information read your policy carefully before you buy.

How to get assistance if you're sick or injured while pregnant. 

It’s essential that you get in contact with our emergency assistance teams as soon as possible so that you can be supported from the time you fall sick or get injured until the time you get home.

So that our Emergency Assistance teams can assist you quickly, please be ready with the following:

  • Your policy number
  • A contact number
  • The nature of your problem
  • Your location

Unable to travel in first trimester.

I unexpectedly became pregnant towards the end of November. I was planning on still going on the trip until my doctor diagnosed me with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. They recommend not leaving the country due to these complications in the first trimester of pregnancy.
