We are planning a holiday to the USA in the summer for the family to stay with my daughters best friends family who recently moved out there. This is a huge step forward and something she is looking forward to. It seems to have given her a huge incentive to get better. But obviously
I know this is risky. I am conscious that insurance premiums will be really high. Although slightly lower as she has not been hospitalised for two years. So far the best I have found is holidaysafe. Does anyone else have any recommendations?

Hi louises,

Hi Louise’s. We went from Scotland to Florida in October last year. We have travel insurance through an account with the Royal Bank of Scotland and they never charged us anymore than standard premium. Maybe because my son was never hospitalised?

Apologies for late reply but not been well.
Thank you Tammy. That’s good to know. Did you say he had an eating disorder though?

I can't help with travel insurance in the UK, obviously, but in the US for a fact they DO NOT ask about medical background to get travel insurance.  And, so long as we purchase it within a few days (I think 10-15 is standard) of purchasing the trip, it COVERS pre-existing conditions.  Pre-existing conditions are excluded if insurance isn't purchased at or near the time you make travel arrangements.  

We've purchased travel insurance a handful of times since DD was diagnosed (5+ years ago now), and we've never been asked about the medical background of anyone in our party.
