About this group
A holiday is supposed to provide uplifting relief from the stresses and strains of everyday life, but for people with MS the extra planning and costs involved in travelling can seem off-putting.
As many people diagnosed with the condition will testify, however, there is no reason that, with the agreement of their doctor, a person with Multiple Sclerosis shouldn’t take whatever trip they wish.
One of the things that can really dampen the holiday spirit is struggling to find a fair deal on travel insurance. Many companies either simply do not offer cover, or charge unfairly high premiums to people with conditions like MS.
By joining our group you use the buying power you share with other people who have Multiple Sclerosis to get a better, fairer deal on insurance.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a fantastic source of support and information: they have a specific Travel and Recreation section, including travel tips from a doctor with over 20 years’ experience in treating people with MS.
Community questions and answers
i have just been looking at your travel insurance/ms page, please don't make me 'suffer from' ms, i just live with it the best way i can, i'm not the only one please check your language?
Thank you for your thought-provoking feedback Gill. When we're researching new insurance topics, we look at anonymised internet search data to understand the language people use to talk about an issue or condition. Sadly "suffering" is a word which occurs quite a lot in relation to MS. But having re-read these pages, I agree with you that the tone isn't right, so we will change it. Thank you again for getting in touch. Best wishes, Sam
