Best travel insurance when you suffer from allergies

Hi all,

We want to book a trip overseas but my daughter suffers from anaphylaxis to nuts, so we need a travel insurance that covers this if something were to happen during the trip. I know that this is near to impossible but I know in the UK there are some insurances that cover these kind of pre existing conditions. Does anyone know if that exists here in Switzerland too. All the insurances I looked at say you need to declare pre-existing conditions and therefore they are excluded from the policy.

Help :-)

Hello. Why don't you buy medications in Switzerland before to travel ? If your daughter suffer of allergy why dont you ask prescript medications to the doctor ? At least you child would be covered by the swiss basic insurance in case of medical emmergency abroad.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but your health insurance should cover you anywhere...At least mine does.

Yes. But only up to twice what it would cost here in Switzerland. So generally you are good in Europe but you might be stuffed in the US. Also not sure it covers you for repatriation flights etc.

I don't guess than medications for allergy would cost more than twice the swiss cost. But not 100 % sure )
For repatriation you are not covered by swiss obligatory insurance, right.
