Have a look here at previous posts. Some of them are old but others much more recent.

Hi jeanmol - it certainly is worth shopping around to see if you can get a better quote.

BLF don’t have a list of insurance companies, but other people have found insurers by searching on the internet under ‘travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions’. We can’t single out any particular company as being better than another, but we do have a link with an insurance company called Fish Insurance.

We’re not recommending them and we can’t promise they’ll be the cheapest but we do know they have a lot of experience providing insurance to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

You can contact them on 0333 331 3848 or visit their website

For every policy they issue, a donation will be made to British Lung Foundation.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,


BLF Helpline

Thank you Ben ,will check them out ,just wandering if its worth going on holiday with all the hassel

It'll be worth it once all this has been sorted out. I agree though, it can be a stressful and time consuming process. I hope you can find a good quote soon! :-)

Try this one, see if this works:

Both links are connecting now. :)
