How can our condition affect holiday Insurance costs, either diagnosed as diverticulosis or as divertiticulitis? Has anyone experience of this?

    Hi Jimjamy

    i travel to Canada at least once every year,  I told the Ins. company that I have Diverticilitis and its controlled by diet.   They took note of it but is hasn't made any difference to what I pay.  My ins. Is with Saga but other companies may differ.

    I should try another Insurance company if they are loading your policy. I've declared Diverticulitis on travel insurance policy for years and it's always been one of the conditions already covered, with no extra costs.
