Shop around for your travel insurance and you may save hundreds!
When you spend years saving up for that special trip, the last thing you want to find is that your travel insurance is unaffordable or takes a hefty lump away from your spending money. That’s what happened to Mr Saw, 72 from Cumbria, who had been saving for a trip to Malaysia for his 50th wedding anniversary.
“After booking the holiday, we decided to check with SAGA, whom I have used for insurance before and I couldn’t believe it when they told that my travel insurance would cost over £600. After seeing Payingtoomuch.com adverted I decided to give them a call, and I am delighted that I did.”
“I spoke to a friendly and helpful travel insurance team member who went through the questions with me and I was thrilled to be told that the policy would only cost £239, over £350 cheaper than SAGA quoted me.”
Chris Pannell from Payingtoomuch.com said: “Although Mr Saw did have a pre-existing medical condition to declare, the price of the policy quoted by SAGA was very high. After calling us, we were able to offer Mr Saw a better like for like rate. We use several travel insurance underwriters that we work closely with to ensure that our clients receive excellent value for money. This doesn’t always mean we are the absolute cheapest, because the cheapest policy won’t always provide sufficient cover, but we are always very competitive, and we offer a range of cover levels depending on the requirements and your budget.”
Travel insurance underwriters ask you to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions and will charge extra for some conditions because you are statistically more likely to need medical attention and therefore make a claim than a customer that doesn’t have that condition.
We try to ensure that medical increases are kept to a minimum by offering quotes from a panel of insurers, which also means you have a wide choice of cover levels available to you.
