Wonder if anyone can help. I am looking to book a 2 week holiday on the Thomas Cook website. When I get to the page with the travel insurance it gives me a price. Then I am advised to look at the link “Further information on existing medical conditions”. This is obviously very important to make sure you are properly covered. But I am left pondering the question, If the insured person is suffering from some depressive illness which does not require hospitalisation and is having an adverse effect on there life, are they safe to proceed with booking the holiday and travel insurance without declaring their mental health disorders.?
