Re: Travel Insurance with secondaries

Hi Imac

I agree with Nicky's advice about calling to clarify the wording "terminal" and to make a note of who/when you spoke to. I have had insurance many times since DX with secondaries and have been told it means receiving end of life care which plainly doesn't apply to you. I haven't got an annual policy but have travelled to europe and USA with a co called InsuranceWith, however they do ask tons of questions. Lots of secondary ladies still seem to be using Eurotunnel. Also Boots and MIA have been recommended.

I hopr you find something - who needs a holiday more than we secondary ladies!!

Travel Insurance with secondaries

Hi All,

I'm struggling to find a policy to cover me that doesn't cost more than the holiday! I have used Eurotunnel in the past, they were great, but their terms seem to have changed. I want annual cover.

 

I also have a husband with hi blood pressure (controlled) and I have controlled epilepsy.

 

I am 11 yrs post primaries and 2 yrs post Mets in lung and bone. Both responding well to treatment which is not chemo. I take Exemestane and mthly Denosumab injection. 

 

I am sure our doc would confirm we are fit for the holiday, but it now looks like Eurotunnel won't cover me as technically terminal. (I only want cover for accident, luggage lost, etc etc!), not the cancer. I only ever got insurance that made our pre existing illnesses exempt, but this wording is no longer in their terms.

 

Any ideas please? I just want to avoid: 1) major cost & 2) Itemsing all my med history knowing they won't cover me anyway. BTW just Europe.

 

Cheers imac X
