My hubby started with Atrial Fibrillation & heart failure in August and we had a holiday booked in October never thought we would get there but we did, I dreaded the insurance premium though and the associated hassle but luckily hit on ALL Clear they were fantastic, the lady on the phone was so patient and kind and went through everything with me. I ended up with their best policy which covered us for everything, (he has several other pre existing conditions as well). It cost us £425 for the year for both of us, excellent

That is fantastic. We have usa flights booked for Christmas and had annual policy with Staysure. After husband's new health issues the policy doesn't stand and we need to change to so cle policy. Quoted £1600!!

well try All Clear my husband has everything under the sun and I have a few health issues too, we were covered for them all as well as cancellations and all the other normal things. I am sure it was their platinum policy the best one

if you already had the insurance in place, and were then found to have health problems then the insurance still covers you. at least that was the case following my stent being fitted last year. however this year its a big increase on renewal .

Annuall policy in place but they wont add his heart attack as it declines so got to switch to single at a cost of £1600!!
