Yes I've got asthma, yes I'm on steroids, YES I am planning a holiday for the end of the month!
So I rang up Unique insurance as advertised on Asthma UK for reasonable travel insurance. I have a couple of other outstanding medical conditions too (osteoarthritis and a bad back), and was horrified to be quoted Â£131.73 for a Platinum travel policy, or Â£123.03 for a Gold policy. Hmmm... far too costly.
I went on the AA website get a quote for my healthy best friend, and it came out at Â£28.86, so I rang the AA up for a quote for myself, complete with all medical complications. I was quoted Â£81.78.
AA would save me Â£41.25 (if my maths is right).
I'm off to book a holiday, and then the AA will get my business, even if it means that Asthma UK won't get a donation from Unique (Heath Lambert). At that price, I could make a bigger donation myself.
