    Going to greece in april for a few days for a friends wedding was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a decent travel insurance provider.

    just a quick post I use insure and go they loaded me £15 on my annual gold policy for my type 2 diabetes they were helpful and very efficient, I think with my Hypertension declaration I pay a loading of about £25 on our joint policy
    Most of the big companys I tried will insure you the best deals are by talking to them I found specialist brokers could offer no better deals than my local broker or a decent internet search.

    Hi,

    I used 247 Insurance who didn't load any extra onto my backpacker policy for being type 1 diabetic. If you buy it online stick the word 'SAVE' in the promo box and you'll also get 10% off.

    Hi,

    I used columbusdirect.co.uk and for me and hubby for a week in spain it was £17.64. That was with me declaring my diabetes and my hubby declaring his asthma.

    Cheers

    I paid just under £50 for an annual multitrip inc. winter sports coverage.
    Paid an extra £10 to cover my Type 1 Diabetes.

    www.flexicover.com - they do all sorts of coverages, you can get a quote online - just declare your medical condition when applying...
