Travel Insurance


Here is some guidance on how you can find travel insurance. Any information provided here is given to help you in your search – we are not recommending any of the companies listed.

First of all I would recommend that you look at the following web site – - There is lots of really useful information and guidance there.

There are several comparison sites that will help you find quotes and are a good starting point:

Medical Travel Compared -

Just Travel Cover - - 0800 294 2969

All Clear Travel - - 01708 339026

If at all possible it is always better to use the above sites online rather than calling – there will be a greater selection of insurance online compared to the telephone.

  • I have just got a very good quote from LV= for insurance with bronchiectasis, asthma and thyroid cancer. I may be wrong, but it does seem to be getting a bit easier to get covered these days!

  • I've used last twice I travelled to Europe. But I used the comparison site as listed above to find the cheapest quote, which was getgoing both times. They may not be the cheapest for your afflictions, and they may not be the cheapest for outside Europe.. so you'll have to do some legwork I'm afraid. Best wishes.
