Specialist travel insurer goodtogoinsurance.com is reminding diabetes sufferers that their condition need not be a barrier to affordable cover for that all important peace of mind abroad. Having a medical condition should not mean that travellers cannot get a good deal on their travel insurance, or worse, take the risk of travelling without any cover at all.
Iain Sykes of goodtogoinsurance.com says, "The number of people living with diabetes has increased enormously over the last decade and this has created a whole new community of travellers who may have a preconceived idea that travel insurance premiums will be much higher if they declare their illness. The risk is that they may not declare their condition, simply to get a lower priced premium. But, should they fall ill while abroad, they may find that they cannot get the medical assistance they need simply because they weren't completely honest on their application. They may also face very expensive medical bills that they will have to pay themselves. It is vital that diabetes sufferers do not take this risk.”
