    Hello

    I'm not sure if this is the correct area to post this, but does anyone have any suggestions for travel insurance companies that don't have extreme charges for people with pre-conditions? The insurance company my husband has been using, MIA, have changed their underwriter and the premium has gone up quite a lot despite his risk status reducing.

    We would be grateful for any help. Many thanks.

    Jenny

    Both my wife and I have pre-existing conditions and usually end up getting a policy that, though more expensive, doesn't cover the conditons we have!

    EhicPlus.

    Two OAPs with hypertension. Annual multi-trip, max 42 days per trip, around the £50 mark.

    Many thanks for the replies. We have found that EHIC Plus was cheapest for us but running a close second was www.insurepink.co.uk - through Cancer Research.

    Best wishes

    Hi, did you manage to get a quote for more than 45 days?? I looked everywhere on their website and could not find where I could extend it. I have sent them an email and hopefully they will come back to us.

    Did you rely on booking on line, or did you ring them??

    Upgrade your bank account to a premier, ones with alliance offer travel, medical, recovery, phone and a few other benefits for £25/ month fee. It also gives a great interest rate - at the time of checking out, it was 7% - which was the same as bonds. I dare say you are looking around 3% now - but having said that, if you are active, travelling and over 60, then it could be beneficial!
