    Get mine from my Bank . Family world travel insurance comes free with my account . Have to go through medical board for my diabetes + my disability however they add nothing on at all . The only things they are bothered about is the statin that i am on as a precaution due toi disbetes though i have never and still don't have high cholesterol and the blood pressure tablet again as a precautionary thing for diabetes again . Got a letter off my doctor explaining that i do not have high cholesterol or blood pressure and the drugs i am prescribed for this are purely precautionary . However i do not know if it would go up or not if i was a type 1 diabetic . They were not bothered about the pain killers and anti-inflamitories i take for arthritis . Like with all insurance do not withold anything from them regarding medication you take etc . Before i got the insurance from the bank i used to get mine from/via diabetes UK just go to the site and click the link their insurance providers do good insurance for people with medical conditions cheap as well

    I took out insurance through Virgin when I went abroad back in September. Luckily I didn't have to call on it.

    My wife and as Stig we use insurance via our bank, but as we are over 70 we have to pay £50 per year, but they kindly include my 43 year old disabled daughter as well.
