About Medical Travel Compared

We are Medical Travel Compared, which is a trading name of Aequotech Limited. Since 2013, our free, independent service has helped many people find specialist travel insurance for hundreds of pre-existing medical conditions over the years.

We pride ourselves on providing the easiest and most convenient way to get travel insurance cover whilst also finding you the best deal possible. Rather than spending your valuable time trawling numerous insurance sites and entering your details over and over again - we enable you to do it all in one go. It literally takes minutes.

As a specialist travel insurance comparison site, we work with over 30 specialist insurance providers, so you have the freedom to compare quotes from various providers at any given time. We offer a completely unbiased comparison service, as we have no affiliation with the providers on our panel. They aren't owned by us (nor us by them), nor do we have any voting rights or financial investments with them.

Medical Travel Compared is all about helping people with pre-existing medical conditions. Our small, but passionate team, has a lot of experience in the travel insurance market and we’ve successfully helped people access cover they can count on.

We’ll compare quotes, so you don’t have to, and better yet, it’s completely free to use our service!

Medical Travel Compared is an insurance intermediary authorised and regulated by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (20376). The Commission supervises and regulates licences from within the banking, insurance and investment sectors. You can find out more information on their website.

Let us tell you about our service and how it works

You’ve probably already spent enough time planning your trip (from exchanging your currency, and sorting out how you’re getting to the airport, to what books to pack), the last thing we want you to worry about is trying to find suitable travel insurance cover.

That’s where we come in! If you’ve got a pre-existing medical condition, we want to provide you with an easy and convenient way to compare coverage from our panel of specialist providers, so you can get back to the fun stuff.

The way our service works is straightforward.

  1. Click the Get a quote button.
  2. Answer some questions about the nature of your trip - and select the dates over which you would need to be covered.
  3. Fill out some personal details - including your name, date of birth, and email address.
  4. Declare any pre-existing medical conditions you may have, and answer some simple multiple-choice questions about your condition.
  5. We then provide you with a list of quotes to compare with the providers who can offer the specialist cover you need for your trip.

It's really that simple!

It’s important to note that we can’t offer you advice or recommend what policy is right for you, but we do try and give you all the information you need to help you decide. Our website is full of useful information and guides to help you understand what cover you need and make an informed decision.

That being said, our passionate team is on hand to provide you with all the information you need to help you decide on the best travel insurance policy to suit your needs. If there’s anything we can do to help, or you want to share your thoughts on our service, you can get in touch with us in several ways. Head over to our contact us page to find out how.
