TRAVEL INSURANCE INFORMATION
The following companies have a special interest in providing travel insurance to people with a medical condition. Hopefully one of them will be able to help you.
You should be prepared with details of your medical history and any medication you are currently prescribed.
Different companies use different criteria to decide whether or not they
will issue insurance, or by how much the premium may increase with each individual.
Some companies charge extra to cover people with medical conditions, and the excess payable may vary a great deal, so it is worth shopping around.
Some companies will insist that you carry the new European Health Insurance card when in Europe.This is available from the Post Office.

Specialise in providing travel insurance for people who are considered ‘high risk’ by the insurance industry generally.

These are compiled from feedback and recommendations we have been given.
Other contacts to try are Marks and Spencer, Direct Line Insurance, Royal Bank of Scotland, The Post Office and BIBA – British Insurance Brokers Association (0870950 1790) who can supply names and phone numbers of insurance brokers. They can also offer assistance when making a claim.
Please note that insurance companies’ criteria for offering cover may change. Although the companies listed aim to be helpful, we cannot guarantee that you will get the cover you need, or at a reasonable price.
Whether cover is provided is unpredictable because a company that one person recommends may not give cover to someone elsewith a similar medical condition due to their personal situation. Also, many companies will not offer annual policies to people undergoing treatment, or those who have had it recently, and they may change their criteria at any time.
