Celebrating HIV Travel Insurance on World Aids Day
Today is World Aids Day, and here at World First we are proud to have been at the forefront of providing travel insurance for HIV positive travellers for thirty years now.
Since the early 80s, we have worked alongside some of the leading HIV charities to help us better understand this complex and life changing condition and to help raise money and therefore awareness amongst the general public.
Our HIV travel insurance cover is affordable and comprehensive, and allows positive travellers and same sex couples to tour the world with peace of mind, just like the majority of the population. However, there is no doubt that HIV is a complex condition and we like to think that the way we sell our insurance reflects this.
- Unlike many travel insurers, there are no blanket exclusions for HIV when it comes to our cover. We treat all quotes for medical travel insurance in the same way and should a traveller become ill with say haemophilia or hepatitis whilst away, then as long as it was declared and accepted when you bought the policy, we will cover the medical bills.
- We provide access to a 24-hour emergency assistance service team, specifically trained in the issues surrounding HIV and the problems of travelling with the condition.
- Our policies are fully comprehensive including optional coverage for most medical conditions, sports travel insurance for ski and snowboard holidays, personal liability, medical expenses, cancellation, luggage, money and emergency repatriation.
- We understand that you don’t want your cover to cost more than your holiday – our annual policy for positive travellers starts at just £45.00.
At World First we have championed the rights of HIV positive travellers for thirty years, and we will continue to do so until the time a cure is found.
