iTrek Pre-existing Medical Conditions

Like the destinations that travellers choose, our health conditions can vary far and wide. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, it is extremely important that you find out if it is covered under your iTrek Travel Insurance. If it is not covered and you require emergency medical assistance while travelling for this condition, you won’t be able to claim under your iTrek Travel Insurance Policy, causing you undue stress and leaving you to foot the often extremely expensive bills.

Your condition could be considered a pre-existing medical condition if it is:

  • An ongoing medical/dental condition or symptoms that you are aware of;
  • A medical/dental condition that you are currently treating or has been treated by a health professional at any time;
  • A condition that you take prescribed medicine for;
  • A condition that you have had surgery for;
  • A condition that you see a medical specialist for; or
  • Pregnancy

To see if your medical condition is automatically covered in your iTrek Trekker Travel Insurance Policy, read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

      Hi Cassi,

      Thanks for your question. is a comparison service and not an insurer. iTrek do offer a benefit for Family Emergency but it will depend on the level of cover you take out in regards to how much you’ll be covered for.

      I hope this was helpful,

      Hi Veronica,

      Thanks for your question. The Trekker plan does not provide cover for the loss of personal items.

      I hope this was helpful,
