I’ve used axa insurance and Aviva insurance for travel with diabetic. And have had no issues with the cost as they cover all my kit.

I think that in any case it is better to travel in comfort. I do not like flights, this makes me feel bad, so I bought a car for long trips Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. It is comfortable and allows our family to go out of town on vacation. I suggest you think about it.

People with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can travel all over the world. It is not a barrier in travelling. There are some major things like tablets, or some prescription from GP that you should have to do while packing your bags. I have done tour to Hunza valley 2019 last month with my family; my aunt is also a diabetic patient and she had a great trip without any travel insurance.
