I've got same problem even though I'm well! All but 1 said no, that was Insure Cancer. They quoted £1000 for a wk in Maderia! Hol only costs £350!
Eurotunnel used to do a fair priced insurance for Europe....however not sure if they still do - it was a few years ago! They only wanted to know, if you had to make a claim, would your GP sign that you were fit to fly (or words to that effect).
Please be careful re covid...I know it's a personal decision and 2 jabs reduces chances of getting covid badly, but even with 2 jabs some scientists think it only reduces the chances of long covid by about 30%... I may just be being overly cautious (since breast cancer I have found I'm prone to post viral asthma after a bad cold/flu).
Money Advice Service has a whole list of insurers that will cover with pre-existing condition. I need to call Insurance With next week as I need coverage to the US at least once if not twice over the next year and really hoping they can cover me. I ran a quote with StaySure online tonight for Europe only for a year to get an idea and it was £400 or so.
What I really need is for the FCDO to loosen up on the country travel guidance - we just booked to Sweden for a week in early August (only open to citizens and other limited categories) and the FCDO essential travel only advice makes already expensive insurance even more pricey!
Hi. Definitely try Insurance With. I've used them a few times and no problem. You do have to answer quite a few medical questions but it's worth it and they are not expensive. The founder of the company is a lady who has/had breast cancer so I would rather give her the business than the bigger well known companies.
Good luck x
Thanks Diane il give it a go I’m not going till sept so still got plenty of time I’m just disappointed for my family if I can’t go xxx
The last travel insurance company I used before COVID was World First. They covered me with an annual European policy at a reasonable cost. I have not checked it out yet this year so don’t know how the cost will have changed. Good luck and let us know how you get on.
pre COVID I found Boots to be good - no big phone interrogation just an online form to fill in. Not sure if this will still be the same post COVID but worth a try.
Has anyone got any idea who would give me travel insurance as I’m going away in sept but a few insurances have said they can not insure me
