    Hi Shrew ,

    I’ve not flown with Jet2 but Easyjet, Ryanair, Flybe and Thomas Cook all have the facility to request assistance online. Remember not to pay for your choice of seat as they will be allocated anyway.

    Best wishes,
    Barry

    Hi Shrew

    It would be worth contacting these two companies:

    https://www.fishinsurance.co.uk
    https://www.insurancewith.com/

    who both provide travel insurance for special medical needs.

    Bon voyage!

    Hi Shrew,
    I might be a little late with this. Sorry ! We have a yearly travel insurance policy with Aviva, which covers European travel. They did ask detailed questions about how MND effects me and it had to be done over the phone but it was around 150 pounds. However I have to get in touch every time I have a hospital/doctors appointment in case things change.( They might get fed up with me alway on the phone )

    We have booked online with Jet 2 but then I ring the special assistance line to ensure they know what assistance I need and what equipment I am taking. They do seem to be helpful and efficient.

    Have a lovely holiday ... You deserve it !
    Love Debbie x
