Is a mental health disorder classed as a pre-existing condition?
Both physical and mental health conditions need to be listed as pre-existing conditions when applying for travel insurance as both of these may need treatment when abroad.
Over a third of people have mental health disorders in their lifetimes, and so it is vital to understand how these can affect your travel insurance.
