Re: Travel insurance

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!

Re: Travel insurance

Hi,

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).

Re: Travel insurance

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!

Re: Travel insurance

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

Re: Travel insurance

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.

Re: Travel insurance

Hi

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.

good luck
