    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! :-)
