travel insurance

Hi all gr8 website

I am looking for some advice for a friend of mine. her little boy has CF and has recentley won a holiday to Florida! Trouble is he cant get any Travel Insurance or it is far too expensive!

Have any of you got any ideas? This little lad is so excited and needs your advice desperately.

Thanks in advance to you all

Re: travel insurance

I'm sorry I really can't help you. I've travelled extensively with DS, who has CF, but I guess I've never gotten travellers insurance before. I make sure I have all his medications labeled, a letter from his doctor indicating he has CF, I carry on all his drugs and his nebulizer, I also carry a list of his medications with me (some people carry actual copies of the prescriptions) in case they lose them. I also have along his insurance card, phone card and credit cards.
