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.
