Your family

Your partner is covered if they live at home with you in a domestic relationship. Your unmarried, dependent children are also covered if they're accompanying you or your partner and they're under 18 years of age at the start of your trip (under 23 years of age if they're still in full-time education and they live with you outside term time). Children are also covered if they are travelling unaccompanied to visit and stay with close relatives for the duration of the trip.

Pre-existing conditions

You will need to call the HSBC Medical Risk Assessment Helpline on 01243 218 426 to declare any pre-existing medical conditions suffered by you, or your domestic partner or any dependent children insured by the policy at the time of opening your HSBC Advance Bank Account and before booking your trip. You must also declare any medical conditions suffered by anyone upon whose health may cause you to cancel/affect your travel plans, such as a close relative or travelling companion.

Pre-existing medical conditions are not covered at any time under this policy unless they have been disclosed to and accepted by the HSBC Medical Risk Assessment Team. Please see Your Travel Policy Summary and Policy Document (PDF) for full details.

For existing HSBC Advance customers who have not previously informed us of pre-existing medical conditions for you, your partner, any dependent children or anyone else upon whom your travel plans may depend, i.e. a close relative, or travelling companion/business associate; please contact us to check whether these conditions will be covered before booking your trip(s), or before you travel if you've already booked your trip(s).

To qualify for this policy you must have been a resident of the UK, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for six months. Your main home must be in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man; you must be registered with a doctor in your country of residence and liable to pay local taxes.
