Travel Insurance advice pls!

My son has Sclerosing cholangitis and ulcerative colitis and try as I might I can't get any of the mainstream to even consider cover even tho at the moment he is pretty well. I seem to recall a few people have chatted about this one before and was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some decent companies - thanks all!

    I used:

    when I took my daughter to Spain earlier this year. Was well impressed when they had AIH on their system! It cost around £50 for a week, but some were £150. Mainstream wouldn't consider her. I think CLDF have a list too, can I suggest don't book your holiday without it organised first.


  • Thanks Pam!
