Muscular Dystrophy Travel Insurance

Specialist travel and holiday insurance if you have been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy

Travel and holiday insurance with muscular dystrophy

It's So Easy can provide specialist travel insurance cover if you have been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy subject to you completing a medical screening. Muscular dystrophy is a collective name for a group of conditions that affect muscle activity including mobility and speech. There are different variants of muscular dystrophy which is why we ask you to carry out a medical screening; this process allows us to assess your condition and will feature questions such as the type of MD you have been diagnosed with and the symptoms you experience, such as difficulties with breathing or swallowing. This medical screening allows us to provide a competitive insurance quote based upon your individual circumstances.

 

Consider your travel destination when seeking an affordable insurance option. Insurance premiums will vary significantly depending on your chosen area of travel, due to the varying medical costs in countries such as the USA, Canada and Caribbean. If you are looking to travel in Europe, look to destinations such as Greece, France or Italy for the cheapest insurance premiums.

International travel with muscular dystrophy

Our aim is to provide you with adequate cover for your personal needs and that's why we won't sell a policy unless we can cover you for everything including existing medical conditions. Regular travel insurance is not usually designed to include cover muscular dystrophy, even if your condition is stable and well controlled. This means that should you require medical attention or need to cancel for any reason that’s directly or indirectly linked to your condition, a regular policy may well decline your claim.


If you’re planning a holiday, regardless of how well your symptoms are controlled it’s important to obtain cover including any pre-existing conditions and to declare this at the time of taking out travel insurance. This ensures that if any complications were to arise either prior to or during your trip which are deemed related to your pre-existing condition then you are fully covered to make a claim.


Planning before you leave home is the key to stress free international travel. If you need additional support or assistance at the airport or during the flight due to your mobility, you should make your travel provider aware of this prior to travelling, giving them an opportunity to make any necessary arrangements for you, such as giving you priority over other passengers when boarding. Check that your accommodation has appropriate facilities to cater to your needs and rooms are accessible if you use a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Some of our policies offer optional cover if your mobility aids are lost, stolen or damaged; please call us to discuss any additional policy options.
