Just come off the phone from "insurewith" what a pleasant relief to speak to someone with a sensible approach and friendly manner. The price was competitive too. If like me you get fed up of jumping through holiday insurance hoops then I think you will find this company a pleasant relief.

Sadly we are unable to obtain insurance until October regardless of the holiday being booked because my sons father's epilepsy is caused by a tumour and the underwriters will not look at the policy until two months before travel.

Just bought our insurance with Insurewith and it was really easy to sort out. Didn't have to wait long for phone to be answered and I spoke to Dale who was very pleasant, helpful and patient. Very happy with our quote for Disney World and took out the silver policy whilst on the phone. Many thanks for your help Epilepsy Action

I've bought travel insurance through Epilepsy Action's partners before and been happy with it. However, this time I was refused a quotation on the website and told to call them for a quotation instead. I now can't get through on the phone - apparently 'an adviser will be with you shortly' means 'at some undefined time in the future'. So beware if you're expecting good service from them.

Our friends at Insurancewith travel insurance are really busy just now. Try the website first, but if you need to call it's usually a bit quieter weekdays 8-10am, 1-3pm or 5-8pm. Weekend afternoons can be a good time too.

I rang Insure With as advertised on Epilepsy action, waited 10 mins for them to answer and went through the medical insurance details for my 22 year old daughter who has epilepsy since she was a baby and as she is waiting for a VNS they refused to insure her. We have travelled widely before with her, managing her seizures ourselves and never having medical treatment whilst abroad or ever claiming on any insurance policy to be refused. I'm not happy ,even when I have said we will withdraw her from the list I am told that she needs a Doctor to email stating same. Not good advertising in Epilepsy action site when they won't insure

Hi Caroline,

Sorry to hear your expectations weren’t met. We have worked with Insurancewith to help them ask the right questions when providing quotes for people with epilepsy, and to have a better understanding of the responses. Our working relationship with Insurancewith does not include a guarantee that they can cover everyone who has epilepsy.

Best wishes,
James, Epilepsy Action

Really disappointed, Insurancewith would not cover my daughter who has epilepsy as she is waiting for a test. Our holiday is May 18 and her test is September 18 at the earliest. My daughters condition is no different from last year when they were happy to cover her... I really don't understand this decision.

Just called Insurancewith who took me through a very comprehensive questionnaire but the end result was a competitive quote for Emerald cover which included our son's complex medical conditions incl. recently diagnosed epilepsy. Thanks EA for partnering with organisations such as these.
