Insurance anyone?

I am intending to fly to America later this year and am looking for travel insurance. I have lupus nephritis, Raynaud's and Sjogren's. and am on low dose prednisolone , hydroxychloroquine and losartan. My condition is described atm by my consultant as 'stable disease.' Does anybody know where I can find a reasonable quote.? At the moment the quotes I have found are more than the air fare!

  • Hi Neriah .

    I always use the same company - its the one who advertise on tv about the older folks at the swimming pool.with all their complaints,and the scuba diving.

    Not sure if I am allowed to mention the name on my reply so,if you havent guessed who it is yet send me a PM .

    I have used these people for a few years now and whether its because I am a regular customer that they give me good quotes I dont know.

    Hope you emjoy your trip..



  • how long are you going for?

    i want to spend the summer out there, but afraid with all my illnesses

  • Try Allclear insurance, that's what I used last year when we went to Italy, very reasonable.

  • You're a brave soul going to the U.S. after this very contentious election but for sure take out insurance but be aware as you have multiple problems (likely the reason for high premium). It still may cost you on your return or while in the U.S. with what's going on there right now.
