Am I required to have a current private medical insurance plan to be eligible for MultiTrip cover?

Yes. Your MultiTrip cover is especially designed to complement the overseas cover provided by your domestic private medical insurance plan, which must have a minimum of €65,000 for overseas medical emergencies.

Your domestic private medical insurance must be in place at the time of any event for which you subsequently claim under your MultiTrip policy. 

Are pre-existing medical conditions covered on my policy?

Yes, unlike most other travel insurance plans on the market, MultiTrip from Vhi Healthcare includes cover for pre-existing conditions up to the full limit of your medical cover provided your health insurance plan has overseas cover, and your pre-existing medical condition is covered under the terms and conditions of that domestic private medical insurance plan. Please see eligibility section for circumstances not covered. You must have served your initial waiting periods on your private medical insurance policy.


We cannot offer cover under the following circumstances, even if you suffer an illness, injury or a new or change to a medical condition that is unrelated:

• If you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

• If you are not fit to travel or fit to undertake your trip.

• If you are travelling intending to receive medical treatment.

• If you are travelling against the advice of a medical practitioner.

Please note: if you are 80 years or over, cover is limited only to the overseas cover limits on your domestic private medical insurance plan. Pre-existing conditions will not be covered.

When should I purchase my MultiTrip travel policy?

You have no cover on your MultiTrip policy until the start date of the policy. Your cover, including cancellation cover will only begin from the start date you choose.

The ideal time to purchase your policy is prior to booking your trip. This will ensure that cancellation cover will be available to you, should something happen to prevent you from travelling. Please refer to terms and conditions here.
