Travel Insurance

Obtaining insurance with a pre-existing medical condition can sometimes be difficult. LUPUS UK has collected a list of insurance companies who offer travel insurance for those with pre-existing medical conditions. Some of our members have found them helpful in the past.

For a full list of these companies see:  http://www.lupusuk.org.uk/travel-insurance/
