Holiday insurance?

Hi all, I’m off on holiday in 6 weeks and CANNOT WAIT! I’m looking to sort my insurance at the min but wondered if there are any insurers who deal with MS? Got a deal last year where me and my gf got insurance included in our hol cost, I then had to phone the insurer up t otell them of my MS though which cost me quite a bit.
Does anyone know any insurers that don’t penalise us quite so harshly for having MS?

Thanks, I’ll have a look at them. I also asked the question on the Tysabri Facebook page and someone there suggested Columbus as they apparently specialise in disability insurance so I’ll check the two out when I get to my comp!

The MS society lists some insurance companies to use. Might be an idea to check their website too.

My partner (who has an MS diagnosis) and myself have been using ‘Unique’ via the MS Trust for a year. They have good deals.

Website called is very good, i booked mine through them, you disclose your illness and they give you a quote. Very hard to find places that cover pre-existing medical illness at reasonable prices.

I’d never been abroad before 2010 and when my hubby phoned up for insurance from the Post office it cost an extra £40 because of my MS but when we rang last year and reiterated that they hadn’t charged anything extra they said that it was due to the fact that I hadn’t been in hospital etc. It only cost £80 in total for the 4 of us and £40 was due to MS. Don’t know if this helps

My bank (Nat West)offered me something called a Black Card. It’s similar to American Express. It’s a credit card, annual cost £240 but for that you get top end travel insurance. It’s world wide, multi-trip, cover up to 70 days per trip.No bars because of pre-existing conditions, meds being taken or age. Up to four travelling companions are also covered at no extra cost. You also get an airport lounge pass and emergency home cover (central heating, plumbing, electrics etc)as well as other bits – ID protection, roadside assistance and so on. As I’d been quoted £120 for one 2-week trip to USA I thought Black Card was better value. It’s been brilliant and when I’ve claimed I’ve got the money within days. Most unusual!

I was looking the other day and I just put holiday insurnce for people with ms into Google,it bought a load of insurers up.
I managed to get a quote for me and my hubby for £36 for a weeks travel which i thought was really good as it covered me with ms and was a very comprehensive cover
at that.
