Direct Travel introduces online medical screening

Direct Travel Insurance

Direct Travel Insurance has launched online medical screening within its web quote & buy process. Online medical screening provides people with pre-existing medical conditions the opportunity to purchase their travel insurance online, with cover for their medical conditions included subject to underwriting acceptance criteria.


You can screen your conditions if you answer yes to any of the medical questions included in the standard purchase process. Simply enter the name of the condition into the screening system and then answer a series of straightforward system generated questions about the condition to determine if cover can be accepted. The screening process is dynamic, with each question generated based upon the answer to the previous question.


Direct Travel Insurance will provide cover for certain medical conditions at no extra cost. If an additional premium does need to be paid to cover the additional risk associated with the condition then you have the option of whether to pay this to obtain cover, or whether to continue with the purchase with cover for the medical condition excluded.
