When you choose your travel insurance it is always a good idea to talk to your GP or other medical professional who is helping you to manage your condition.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body’s natural defence system starts attacking healthy tissue. There is no cure but it can be managed with medication.
It is estimated that 5 million people worldwide have lupus. It is more prevalent in women than men and, of those living with the condition, it occurs more in people with Afro-Caribbean or Asian origins but it is not known what causes it. Visit the charity Lupus UK for information.
If you have lupus as a pre-existing medical condition make sure you tell Direct-Travel about it when you take out travel insurance with us.

Our last suggestion is make the most of it. Go off and enjoy your trip.
