Re: [IPk] Travel Insurance

 I contacted Direct travel after it was recommended on the list. It is for 
my 17 year old daughter who is epileptic. they were really helpful and the 
quote was great too 12 pound for two weeks. I asked about cover for my 
diabetes, not that I need it at the moment as i can't get consent from my 
consultant to travel, and she said that they would cover me and would give 
me a quote. Other cinsurance companies have refused to even quote me.
