You should if you think so. Just by asking the question, its already playing on your mind

I'm going abroad soon and I told the insurance company that I had fibromyalgia. It didnt increase the cost, but at least they can't come back at you if something happens while away and they try to blame it on a condition you haven't told them about. So, I would tell them just to be on the safe side.

Hope that it hasn;t caused any problems with you getting insurance at a reasonable cost. If you don;t declare an illness that you already know about or being tested for and something happens whilst abroad it can invalidate the insurance so it is always best to reveal all and let the insurance company decide whether it is relevant or not. Enjoy your holiday.x

Hi there 😃

Last year when I went to Kos I got in touch with my insurance company and told them what conditions I have, some were counted and not covered, but others were fine. a I think the very best thing you can do is to give your insurer a quick ring and put your mind at rest and know that you will be properly covered were anything to go wrong, which I pray won't ! Have a lovely holiday ☀️☀️☀️😃😃
