It is important to declare to the insurer all diagnosed ailments as failure to do so could mean you may be unable to make a claim under your travel insurance for any medical treatment you need whilst you are on holiday.
This could also affect whether you are able to make a claim under the cancellation options should you fall ill before the holiday starts due to undisclosed ailments.
General unrepeated ailments such as the common cold and hay fever need not be declared. If you are unclear about what is and is not required during the application then ring the customer services team to check.
