Help! Holiday insurance


#1

Hi
My mum and Dad are looking for holiday insurance - Dad has Parkinson’s and has had a quote for £205 - can anyone tell me if this is reasonable and if not who to try?
Thanks in advance o

That does sound quite expensive. I got holiday insurance for me and my husband for £83.62 for a year. I have PD but was only diagnosed last summer and the symptoms are relatively mild. Our cover excludes USA which would have been much more expensive. We got our quote via moneysupermarket.com which lets you declare a pre-existing condition and then asks questions about the symptoms.

Hi Karaholl,

I hope all is well.

I just thought you’d be interested to know that we have a ‘Holiday and Travel’ section on the Parkinson’s UK website which you may find useful. If you’re finding it difficult to get the right insurance, we have advice on the best way to overcome this. You can find all the information you need, here.

I hope this helps with your query! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks,
Reah
