    Crohns & Travel Insurance? 7th Jan 18 at 11:10 AM
    Just been diagnosed with Crohns Disease. Symptons are pretty mild.

    Is this likely to affect future Travel Insurance?

    Just found it myself actually it is a No Screen condition on the Lloyds Platinum Account Travel Insurance so automatically covered which is good news.

    So advising the OP "you have to declare it" was just unnecessary scaremongering??
