    Travel insurance

    What should a quadriplegic do regarding travel insurance? I'm flying from Canada to Europe next week and, looking through the online insurance plans, I can't find the 'paralysis' box to check for pre-existing medical condition. I'd like to be covered, but I don't want to get screwed with non-disclosure if something bad happens.

    What do you guys do?

    When we take cruises, we always sign up for the travel insurance as soon as we book, since pre-existing conditions don't apply if you do this within 48 hours of booking your trip. If you wait, you cannot get it due to a pre-existing condition such as SCI, MS, etc. I would assume that the same applies for other types of travel insurance.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

        Nothing. I have never travelled without insurance and nobody has asked me anything even if they have seen my wheelchair.

        And if we pay our trip with a Visa or Mastercard creditcard, we have travel insurance for 60 days. But I have a yearly insurance too, that is working everytime I go out of the house. That has worked all my life, only in the US they didn't want take my insurance.

            I have never bothered with it. My credit card offers the protection for free. I had to use it one time after a fender bender, but that has been about it.
