A BIG THANK YOU, to Newdawn, Cllcanada (Chris), Hairbear, jangreen, olyocl, milliemoo123 and hammy for the helpful answers to my question. I meant to respond sooner but I wasn't sure of my password (oops) and, as my daughter in Perth Oz, got engaged on Rottnest Island at the end of January, I've been busy successfully booking church, organist, reception, photographer, video, ceilidh band, cake, vintage car, flowers et al for her Perthshire (Scotland!) wedding in December. I travel, alone, Glasgow - Dubai - Perth Oz 21 March for a six week stay. // Anyway - travel insurance - I phoned Saga who quoted £345.76; I phoned Insure Cancer - and that was a HORRIBLE experience! The guy there had a pseudo-sympathetic, sorrowful tone. He told me how brave I was, asked me how far I could walk, what I weighed, seemed to think that my Stage A, W&W CLL meant that I was ready to give up the ghost any minute, said I could only get travel insurance within 28 days of travelling - and that it would cost over £1000!!! You can imagine how I felt when I came off the phone. I then went on to Mia and that was an excellent, painless, positive experience. The representative was totally on the ball, knew exactly what my circumstances meant, told me that I should see my GP to have a note put on my medical records stating that I was fit to travel and then phone back and that it would cost £168. So I'm insured with Mia; so special thanks for telling me about them. Interestingly, my hubby (who is staying at home in Bonnie Scotland and is probably glad to be getting a bit of peace from me) has free Europe-wide travel with his Nationwide Flex Account. He phoned Nationwide and I spoke to the girl there. For only £50 we could both get world-wide travel insurance with them. However, I would NOT be insured if anything happened to me which was CLL related. As Chris said, it is highly unlikely that anything untoward would happen re my CLL but it would be a risk. Inasmuch as insurance companies like to avoid paying out, what if something happened to me out there, with my blood, or whatever? It would be silly not to make sure that I have the peace of mind knowing that I'm medically covered, largely because, even if an illness was unrelated, it might be that an insurance company might argue that whatever wouldn't have happened had I not had the pre-existent condition of CLL.// That's my update! Thank you so very much!
