    Does anyone know of a reasonably priced travel insurance for people with type 2 diabetes? I tried a few which want to add nearly £80 on top of the regular insurance !
    I have two trips to Europe and one to Mexico this year and first time declaring my condition so a little lost.
    Thanks in advance

    I use top dog. They are really reasonable.
    You buy a standard policy and then buy a top up to cover diabetes or other conditions.

    I've used Nationwide insurance. Same as the above post with regular policy and a topup for diabetes.

    I must tell everyone needing to declare pre existing medical conditions to try Medici Travel. I declare multiple conditions and this year my annual policy for Europe is around £130. I've shopped around A LOT for travel insurance and have used them for years now. Take a look I'm sure you'll find them very competitive.

    Try flexi cover, I use this every time I travel it's very reasonable. Usually less that £10 to cover diabetes.

    We use Barclays Premier Banking which includes worldwide travel insurance for my husband and I. Diabetes does not affect the cover provided. When you price up the benefits provided from various suppliers it is very competitive. It costs £17 per month.
