Holiday Insurance Thanks for the info. I phoned them and got one weeks cover in Europe for Ã‚Â£28 for me, my husband and my daughter and they were really friendly too. So nice to be treated like you are a normal person.
Travel Insurance Thank you for this recommendation!!
I have spent the last few days ringing SO many insurance places to get a quote - it's slowly driven me mad!!
Apart from the many times I have been told that they won't cover me for breast cancer, I received of about Ã‚Â£300, then about Ã‚Â£230, and finally Aberdeen Insurance Services have quoted me Ã‚Â£24 for each family member.
The information is being put in the post for me to read - but the policy sounds fine. And the price is too!!
So once again, thank you!
Just to let you know i got insurance before treatment had finished i was quoted for a single trip 23.00 which i didnt think was bad but i opted for the annual one which was worldwide cover for myself for about Ã‚Â£69.00.
So thanks a lot and have a lovely holiday
I've just been given a quote by Direct Line for myself, my partner and my son. They said they'd cover my cancer despite being less than 2 years post diagnosis and being on tamoxifen. They quoted Ã‚Â£102 for the 3 of us for a single trip. An annual policy would cost Ã‚Â£211.
Also very good Just to let you know that I have just had a very reasonable quote from Columbus Direct (0870 083 9503) who were mentioned somewhere on this site - they will cover everything to do with BC and I have managed to get an annual multi-trip world wide policy for me and the family for under Ã‚Â£130. Several other companies that I tried wouldn't cover me because I am less than 2 years since diagnosis or would only give single trip policies. If you want single trip then Freedom were pretty competitive.
Hope this is useful.
Thanks for the number i will give them a ring this afternoon as i am still having rads and have normal insurance but they wont cover breast cancer due to finsish rads on Mon 18th June and go on hols on the 21st to Portugal ( i feel its a bit naughty really and may be a bit too soon but what the hell i will just have to be careful)
In fact i phoned a couple of insurance companies up and they wouldn't even give me a quote until my treatment has finished which doesnt give me enough time to insure.
and Best Wishes
Hi Folks, thought that I would bring this to the top again, it is soooooo good to know that you are considered normal when it comes to insurance. It only took 10 mins on the phone and we were not referred to other people for questions.
thanks haha jus posted before i looked at the rest of the posts ! wanted to know about hol insurance thanks a lot gunna ring them in the morn thanx sooooo much again xxxxxx
Thanks for letting us know about this travel insurance. I phoned them this afternoon and have taken insurance for my holiday in August. Not only would they offer me insurance even though I havn't finished radiotherapy yet but they were half the price of the other insurer who would only give me cover when all treatment is finished. Like you say they will increase the excess if i claim in relation to breast cancer.
Love Lollie x
Travel Insurance Hi Folks
Finished chemo yesterday and due to start RT on 2nd July for 25 sessions. The end is in sight as I am HER2- and there is no further treatment.
Thought I would pass on some very good news which gave me a boost. Going to visit my daughter and grand children in Australia for 4 months with OH and I have found an insurance company that will insure me for breast cancer, they treat it as a normal illness not life threatening and do not increase the premium, only the excess if I claim relating to BC, so I have 4 months in Australia to look forward to. The name is Aberdeen Insurance Services
