We went to Spain for a week when my son's count was under 20. I declared his count/condition and his recent hospital stays to the insurance company, but they weren't over bothered - I think that we had to pay an excess on our normal insurance of £10 or something. Try phoning round a few to ask - I tried a few because I couldn't believe that there wasn't a higher excess charge, but they were all pretty much the same!
Hope you have a good holiday anyway - Tunisia sounds so tempting givcen the temperature outside in Crewe at the moment!!!
I had heard that ITP would be expensive to insure before we went on holiday, but it didn't seem to be at all. I guess it might be more problematic if you have a lot of bleeding symptoms, but fortunately my son doesn't. I seem to remember that it was exactly the same category as my moderate asthma, so not bad at all. We did get told by the hospital to ensure that we went somewhere with good hospitals just in case though.
I am sooo jealous of anyone going to tunisia - I bet you are looking forward to it!
