If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you may have been put off from buying travel insurance, especially if you find it to be more expensive than you initially thought. But, if you travel without cover, you are putting yourself at much greater risk. Try shopping around for a more suitable policy, they are out there.
Mrs Turner from Cornwall thought that the quote she received from SAGA for her travel insurance was too expensive and called PayingTooMuch.com to find a more affordable policy.
Mrs Turner said: “After booking a two-week Mediterranean cruise, I called several travel insurance providers such as SAGA and was shocked at how expensive they all were. I saw PayingTooMuch.com advertised in the newspaper and decided to call them. I wanted to speak to someone to make sure all the medications I took were listed on the policy and to reassure myself that I had done everything correctly. I am so pleased I did. The quote I received was only £87.12, so much cheaper than the quote from SAGA, which was over £200.
Travel insurance expert, Aaron Hackett from PayingTooMuch.com said: “Disclosing pre-existing medical conditions, even if they are well controlled, is crucial. Some conditions may not increase the cost of the policy but failure to disclose them could affect whether a claim would be paid. The right policy to cover you for cruise travel can’t be underestimated. For example, emergency medical treatment on ocean cruises can be run into tens of thousands of pounds due to the added complexities and costs of transporting the patient to a nearby medical facility and the possibility of needed an air ambulance back to the mainland. Having cover for a cruise is a must!”
