I am wondering if anyone on the forum can recommend a good travel insurance company that covers people with learning disabilities without hiking the price up?
I have taken my mentally handicapped sister on holiday all over the world every year for about 20 years now with no problems. She always paid exactly the same premium as me as we are both fully fit and healthy, I always just made a point of telling whatever company that she has a learning disability, they were always fine with this, all they were ever interested in is if she had any physical problems which she has not.
Then 3 years ago it started,as soon as I mention the learning disability the price goes up 3 fold and we have to do a special totally pointless medical questionnaire, I say pointless because my sister is the fittest person I know!. Apparently learning disabilities are now classed as a medical condition.. My husband has a lot (and I mean a lot) of very serious medical conditions and she is being quoted more than him!. I think this is really, really unfair and borders on discrimination and is just an excuse to rip my sister off.
I am wondering if anyone knows a company in the UK that is not classing learning disabilities as a serious medical illness?
Any help most appreciated
