What is cerebral palsy?

Cerebral palsy embraces a number of neurological conditions which affect muscle control. This can hamper co-ordination, balance and movement. The comedian Francesca Martinez, who has cerebral palsy describes its affect on her by describing herself as being “wobbly”. There are several forms of CP of which spastic cerebral palsy, which causes tightening of the muscles and spasms, is by far the most common. Some treatments such as physio and occupational therapy can easy symptoms but CP It is a lifelong condition for which there is no cure

Do I need to declare cerebral palsy as a pre-existing medical condition when buying travel insurance?

Yes. You must always be honest and declare any pre exiting health conditions for which you have been diagnosed, and cerebral palsy is no exception. Do not be tempted to hide your condition from your insurer as doing so can invalidate your travel insurance. This could then leave you liable for the cost of any emergency medical treatment whilst abroad and, should you need to, expenses associated with getting you back to the UK.

Will having cerebral palsy prevent me from getting travel insurance?

You are protected under anti-discrimination law which prevents insurers from refusing you cover. However that legislation does allow them to charge you more for your insurance and/or place specific exclusions on your cover. However, because Ancile is a specialist broker, they are able to source effective and highly competitive travel insurance for people with neurological conditions, including those classed under cerebral palsy.
