I wouldn't botherwith "insurancewith". The website is poor, the cover is very expensive and the levels of cover are appalling unless you oay ridiculously high premiums.

There are loads of companies offering a much better service and far better value for money

Hello Duncan

I’m sorry to hear that your experience of getting a travel insurance quote did not meet your expectations.

We’ve worked in quite some detail with Insurancewith to make sure that the assessment questions asked take into account the complexity of epilepsy. We’re also working with them to make available a discount for Epilepsy Action members, and that will be available soon. It’s early days though, so your feedback can help us make that partnership work better for Epilepsy Action members

If you’re happy to share more details of your experience, please email them to me at jwainwright@epilepsy.org.uk

It would be particularly helpful to know more about your issues with the website and the level of cover you were offered, as well as the premium quoted

Many thanks,

Hello, Benjamin.

Our advice and information specialists have worked extensively with Insurancewith. Together we have tried to enhance the standard medical screening questions used by the travel insurance industry so that the diversity of epilepsy and its associated treatments can be taken into account.

That said, our partnership with the company is still in its very early stages, so we’re far from getting it absolutely right every time.

With a view to fixing that, it would be useful to know more about your experience of seeking cover from Insurancewith. I’d like to speak to them about your case, so if you could drop me a line I’ll take it up with them and get back to you.

To answer your question about the substance of our partnership with Insurancewith, we are working towards a travel insurance service that will:

  • Be available at a discount to Epilepsy Action members
  • Use an enhanced screening process that takes into account the complex nature of epilepsy and epilepsy treatment / medication
  • Support Epilepsy Action’s wider work for people with epilepsy by making a donation to the charity for every policy sold.

As I say, this is something we’re working towards. We have included Insurancewith’s details on our website in advance of this as we believe the efforts they have made to understand epilepsy merit our support for their services. That’s why it would be so helpful to learn more about your individual case – your feedback can directly improve the service for future users.

Many thanks,

I have a very mild form of epilepsy that is little more than an inconvenience --- yet Insurancewith will not cover it. I didn't feel that their screening questions 'took into account the complexity of epilepsy at all. So what is the substance of this 'partnership'? It just seems to promote a company that is even less helpful than some other.

I just wanted to say that my experience with insurancewith has been extremely favorable. My boyfriend has epilepsy with Tonic-clonic seizures and is visiting me in the USA and insurancewith asked more detailed questions about his epilepsy as well as asking medication-specific questions and had a 100 pounds cheaper policy than any other company we got a quote from with fantastic 10 million pound medical emergency coverage. For just 10 pounds more he purchased the plan with flight cancellation coverage and it wasn't much more than 100 pounds. Thank you for the link to this website :)

Hi Colin.
I'm afraid I don’t understand where you are seeing this restriction. If you could tell us where you have seen it we will certainly follow it up.
