Do I need to declare MS as a pre-existing medical condition?
Regardless of the current stage of your condition (be it clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting, primary-progressing or secondary progressive), it's important to declare it when getting a travel insurance quote. If you have not disclosed your medical history, any claims you make will likely be rejected should it pertain to any witheld medical conditions you have. This includes MS.
How do I declare my condition?
To declare your medical conditions, just enter your travelling details into the quote from at the top of the page, and you'll be taken through your medical screening process.
If you are a little unsure about what happens during a medical screening, don't worry - the process is very simple and only takes a few minutes. To help us put together a suitable policy for your multiple sclerosis, you will be asked several questions pertaining to your pre-existing medical condition. Medical screening takes place online through the quote form above, though if you prefer this can also be done via our Kent-based insurance team by calling our free helpline.

Travelling with multiple sclerosis
Consult your doctor
Regardless of which pre-existing medical condition you have, it's always a good idea to consult your doctor, who can give you professional advice on your medical requirements when travelling.
Also bear in mind, when travelling by plane, some airlines require a 'fit to travel' note from your doctor, so be sure to ask the doctor for one when seeing them.
Do your research
In-depth information regarding all aspects of multiple sclerosis can be found on the official Multiple Sclerosis UK website.
Dealing with the heat
For many sufferers of MS, the heat is a serious consideration. For those patients that are not excessively heat intolerant, it's still advised to take care when visiting hotter countries. Keeping well hydrated and bringing a cooling case or ice chest will help to keep you from overheating.
There are a number of things you can do to make your journey more comfortable. Most airlines have special transport measures for use in the airport, and these can be arranged if you notify the airport in advance. Aircraft are also capable of carrying standard size wheel chairs free of charge, though battery powered wheelchairs may need to be dismantled for the carriage, so remember to bring the assembly instructions for your chair.
Should you require vaccinations for your destination, consult with your doctor well in advance of your trip. Remember, you will not be able to take vaccinations during an acute relapse or steroid treatment.
Make sure that you have enough medication to last you for the entire duration of the trip. If you're carrying any medication in your hand luggage, make sure you have the relevant medical certification with you and remember to carry all medication in the original pharmacy packaging. For injectable prescription medication, be sure to have a doctor's note specifying that your are allowed to take such medicine.
