I need travel insurance and did a wee search on here and rang the helpline. It seemed that Unique Insurance came up quite a bit. So I filled in their online form.....
So, for me to go to America for 1 week, the quote was Â£390.00 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
My chin hit the ground, how the hell can they justify that!, that is more expensive than for my to insure my car fully comp travelling 30,000 miles a year!!!
Anyway, I rang insure and go, and for the same criteria their quote was Â£38.47 and queried if I would be covered if my normal asthma drugs didn't stop me from having an attack and they said yes - proof in the pudding and all that, but I wouldn't want to try and find out.
Message for Asthma UK, can you get together with a leading insurance company that will provide proper travel insurance for asthma suffers that is not rediculously expensive, there's enough of us so that we don't have to pay extortionate prices. If not, perhaps a change in policy and not recomend Unique Insurance atleast.
