Top Tips for Multiple Sclerosis Travel:
Before you go on holiday a bit of preparation is essential, especially when you are travelling with a medical condition such as Multiple Sclerosis. Often people only have a short checklist to tick off before they travel such as:
- Print tickets / boarding pass
- Check passport dates
- Pack sun cream / sunblock
If you have a pre-existing medical condition such as Multiple Sclerosis, then it is a good idea to give thought to a few more things in your planning.
Seek some Medical Advice before you travel
It is always a good idea to speak to your GP, Doctor or a medical professional before you go on holiday if you have a medical condition, just to check you are fit for travel and to be informed of anything you might need to think about while you are away with regards to your condition.
Take more than enough medication
Always pack more medication than you would need normally for the number of days you are booked to be away, just in case. It is also wise if you are travelling with others to ask them to pack some of your medication in their case too, just in case you baggage goes astray. It is worth looking into whether you chosen destination has any restrictions on the type of medication you can take with you. Also do be aware if you are taking strong painkillers then you need to check whether you require a license to carry them with you.
Apply for an EHIC
You can also receive a certain level of free cover for European travel if you apply for an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) before you travel.

Case Study 1
- Client: Female
- Age: 51
- Smoker status: Non-smoker
- Medical conditions: Secondary progressive MS and anxiety
- Cover date: 2nd July 2019
- Product type: Life Cover
- Cover amount: £20,000
- Cover term: 10 years
- Premium: £30.14
We were approached by this lady on the 17th January 2019 when she completed an enquiry through our website. Our advisor Greg then called her to discuss her life insurance needs and her pre-existing medical conditions, at this point the lady disclosed that she has secondary progressive MS and anxiety, and that she was looking for cover for 20 years for a maximum premium of £50 per month. Greg took this information and researched which provider would be best for the customer. He then applied to one of our specialist providers and retrieved a few quotes for different amounts of cover. As secondary progressive MS can be a very difficult condition to obtain cover for, the premiums can be subject to a relatively significant increase. Given her budget the client chose to take cover for £20,000 over 10 years, for a monthly premium of £30.14. This is a very good premium considering the lady’s difficult medical conditions as well as a few smaller medical issues that she has had throughout her lifetime. Furthering this, we also managed to secure cover for her partner, meaning that she could reduce the amount of cover that she needs.
Overall, this is a great outcome as it can be very difficult to find cover for someone with secondary progressive MS and we were delighted to be able to find protection for someone who previously struggled to find life insurance.
