Hi Guys! I need some advice....Ill be visiting Netherlands THIS Friday. (an impromptu holiday!!!), the amount of medication Ill be taking is fine: Ill be going from Friday March 8th, until Tuesday March 12th, so just a few days. My question surrounds travel insurance. 1) Will I be able to get cover in such short notice? Again, Im leaving in 3 days. 2) Are there particular companies you know covered your Diabetes related issues, whilst on holiday? I just hate the thought of paying for travel insurance and they don't want to pay up, or make it extremely difficult. 3) Can you guys link me to some insurance companies you guys use, that you know haven't caused much of an issue? I've had a look at some companies, and the cost ranges from around £8 to £14, (this includes the Post Offices insurance too, which was on the upper end of cost). The reason why I mention this, is because when I typed in the company I had initially wanted to go with: EXPLORER TRAVEL INSURANCE, I googled reviews about them and there were a few negative ones, and it essentially put me off using them. (Just an FYI, Ive had Type 1 Diabetes for almost 21 years now, and I dont have issues concerning: heart disease, retinopathy, nerve damage, cholesterol issues. I dont smoke or drink either). I also do have the EHIC CARD, but wanted to take private travel insurance on top of that. 4) Did going through the airport cause you any issues with your Diabetes? Ill be flying through Birmingham Airport, this Friday. Just an FYI I only use my insulin PENS, for both my basal and bolus insulins and I use Freestyle Optium Neo to test blood sugars (I'll be taking back ups of the insulin pens and blood tester machine). 5) Following on from question 4, did Airport officials ask you to provide a letter from a Doc that you have diabetes, or did your previous prescription slips suffice? 6) Did you place all Diabetes medication in your hand luggage? (I understand some Diabetics have even asked to have their insulin placed on the airline fridge). 7) In Netherlands, could you get hold of Diabetes related items, lets say your blood test machine malfunctioned, were you able to get hold of another machine from a chemist? Thankyou if you took the time to read and answer my questions! Ive never travelled alone, Im so worried!
