Platinum Added Value Account FAQs

Travel Insurance and pre-existing medical conditions

  • If you have an Added Value Account with travel insurance, then the cost of this will be included in the monthly maintaining the account fee. Please check the terms and conditions of your policy to see what (if any) pre existing medical conditions are covered. If you have told the insurer about a pre-existing medical condition they may ask you to complete a medical screening to make sure that you have the appropriate level of cover for your individual circumstances.
  • If the insurer is unable to offer cover to you or anyone else intended to be covered by this policy due to a pre-existing medical condition, then you may be able to obtain cover from a specialist travel insurance firm.  
  • The Money and Pensions Service has details of specialist insurers in their Travel Directory. ‘To access the directory please visit or call 0800 138 7777. Please be aware you may not be able to find cover for undiagnosed symptoms and you may be made to wait until you have a diagnosis before receiving cover elsewhere.
  • Please note: any cover that you obtain via this route will be in addition to the travel insurance that you already have with your Added Value Account. It will have a separate cost and could mean you have dual cover.
  • If this is the case, you may want to think about whether your Added Value Account remains appropriate for your needs.
