I am 79, have IPF diagnosed 2010 and currently on Pirfenidone. I am reasonably active using O2 at 5/6 litres for 16 hrs daily and I am envious of all those patients who go cruising. How do they get insurance? I also declare high blood pressure, diabetes and one TIA, but I have tried numerous companies and the only quote I have received is over £2000 for a 14day no-fly Med cruise. All other companies would not insure me at all. I always travel alone but cannot understand what I am doing wrong? I was given the impression by my resp. Nurses that the need for oxygen was no barrier to travel abroad. Any advice would be appreciated
