    Deb- That’s great news. Hopefully I will get the same.

    Take care.

    We have an annual European policy with Allclear. When we renewed it this year they added on three months for free due to being unable to travel because of government restrictions.

    Hello. I have found AllClear Travel Insurance to be excellent. I got an Annual Policy, including the USA, for vastly less then a quote for a two week holiday.

    I agree with Deb, if you are on a separate policy and had to return because of something connected you wouldn’t be covered, when we went to Disney we all went on one policy.

    Hi Shrew,
    We were advised to be on the same policy.

    I think it's because if Mick had to return home or cancel,which I am sure won't happen, you would want to return with him or cancel too.

    Good Luck
    Love Debbie x

    Thanks Andy. I was surprised too.
    One more question about insurance. Are we better on one policy, or just Mick on the specialist one and a bog standard one for the rest of us?
    Thanks

    Join the club!

    At least my GP seems to know what to look for when he gets the results!

    He says he is watching out for liver damage - and having had the required set of blood tests over the first year he's asked me to carry on having one quarterly for the next year to keep track of me really

    Best to all

    Andy

    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
