    Default Travel insurance with Ivf?

    I could possibly be going overseas in sept/oct haven't booked it yet, it's going to be for a family event so I really want to go! Anyways we are planing another cycle in may but my concern is that 1. If the cycle works and I can't fly will I lose out on all money? 2. I have looked into travel insurances and looks like all of them are saying that they won't insure you if it assisted fertility?
    Can anyone please help me?? I am so stuck on what to do! The trip will be to Europe so a long flight!

    Have a look at Icover (think that was the name). We went OS when I was about 15 wks with an IVF pregnancy, and I got cover through them...

    I've used Covermore, they definitely cover IVF pregnancies.

    If you book flexible airfares, you can get refunds direct through the airlines up to a certain point before you fly- check the cancellation policies.

    By chance we bought a regular fare tickets for christmas vacation but then the FS scheduled the surgery for DH and me cycling at the same time. Got airfare refunded with $200 or so cancellation fee.

    Sorry cant help with insurance.

    Muzzy I had difficulty also finding ivf covered insurance. Check with them that if something happened and bub was born early that bub would actually be covered. Most of the ones I talked to wouldnt pay babys medical expenses.

    Thank you so much! Will check out flexible flight, my biggest concern at the moment is if I book flights then get pregnant and not allowed to fly then I would lose out on the ticket money! (It's a present from a family member) I will look into that dancing butterfly! I am a citizen where we are going so not sure if that will work in my favour!

    We bought refundable tickets, called flexi or something (very expensive ones). You have to check the rule because each level of ticket has diff rule. I called them to cancel. They deducted the amount of cancellation feed and refunded the rest back to my debit card account.

    Oh... I said by chance because the cheapest fare ticket sold out. So we ended up buying the most expensive tickets. In a way, we were lucky or else we would lose $3000+ for the two of us.
