    Hi

    I am starting the planing for my next holiday.

    I am coming from the UK so Insurance is an odd thing to us.

    Last time I went just about 2 years ago, I did have some problems but I managed to get insurance for about £100.

    And last year when i went to Pairs it was about £300.

    But i did have problems, but with planning I did not have to many problems.

    I have also had problems on plains (I also got the plain landing at the wrong place.)

    Now my health is not as good, I now have epilepsy that is controlled with drugs.

    In about 2 or 3 months I think they are going to add MS to it.

    I have just had a quick look for how much it is going to cost me this time and it was about £1100 this time.

    Does anyone think i should be able to get it for less.

    go to travelsupermarket.com and go through the insurance companies that come up on there.
    we use direct-travel.co.uk and pay £72 for a family annual, but we dont have any medical conditions.
    £1100 is absolutely rediculous - you will get insurance a lot cheaper than that

    All you can do is try as many companies as possible until you find a price you are happy with then make sure their cover is adequate.
    Usually you can get it at a reasonable price, DMIL is in her 70's, heart condition and diabetes, cost her about £350 for 9 nights with us last Xmas but I know someone else with similar problems and it was in the £1,000's, couldn't get price down so they decided not to go.
    Costs us £150/year for top cover incl DW high blood pressure. Only pay that price because I want 2 laptops covering for £500 each otherwise it would be about £70.
    Good luck.

    The problem is there is a bit in most T&C is no long term medilec condicons, been to a doc. in the last 6 months.

    it is the bit they try and get you on so they do not have to pay out.
