If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you might think that finding affordable travel insurance for your trip could be impossible. In some cases, the policy itself costs almost as much as the holiday.
If you use a service like PayingTooMuch.com then you can compare several travel insurance quotations to find the best policy for your needs. Whether you are booking a weekend break to Paris or a three-week trip to Australia, finding a suitable and affordable policy for your trip is essential.
Carl Gresham from Bradford was looking for an affordable travel insurance policy for his 10-night all-inclusive trip to Torremolinos in Spain and checked several comparison sites but found many of them to be too expensive.
Mr Gresham said: “I went online to find an insurance policy for my trip and visited a few sites, but couldn’t believe what I was being quoted, it was just too expensive – almost half the price of trip itself. I have pre-existing medical conditions, but I was beginning to think I had two choices; paying over £300 for the policy or cancelling my holiday.
I wouldn’t travel without cover as I know how much medical bills can be in Spain, so I continued to shop around and visited PayingTooMuch.com and I am delighted I did. For the same level of cover, I was quoted £57!
It was like a breath of fresh air when I spoke to Laura from PayingTooMuch.com. I felt totally secure in the knowledge that I was fully covered, and all my documents arrived within days of taking out the policy. I would definitely recommend the service I received.”
Travel insurance expert Aaron Hackett from PayingToomuch.com said: “We understand that finding affordable comprehensive travel insurance can be very difficult for people with a pre-existing medical condition. We have found that there are insurance providers who charge high prices to cover those with medical conditions, which can put people off getting cover and relying on only the EHIC for medical help. This is very concerning as we believe that no one should travel without adequate cover and be at risk. Mr Gresham was worried that the cover he was being offered by another insurer was going to force him to cancel his trip as it was too expensive. By coming to us, he found his policy was four times cheaper than the first quote he saw on another insurance website. It really does pay to shop around.”
