Don’t get confused or anxious about travelling when pregnant. Our handy guide will help you understand travel insurance and more.

You should be able to travel up to full-term with certain protection from travel insurance, but it’s important to read the terms and conditions of any policy so you know exactly what you’re covered for.

For example, your insurance may only cover you for medical costs associated with pregnancy and childbirth up to a certain stage in your pregnancy, often between 28 and 32 weeks, and it only covers you for complications, not routine treatments. So, if you were to go into natural labour while away after this, you are unlikely to be covered. You also shouldn’t travel against the advice of your doctor at any stage of your pregnancy or this might invalidate your insurance.

And, even if your insurer will cover you, airlines have their own rules around pregnancy and limits when flying with them, so it’s important to check what your individual airline’s rules are before you buy flights in case you are stopped from boarding.

Although it sounds obvious, remember to factor in how many weeks’ pregnant you will be on your return journey as well as your outward one.
