I would like to know whether there anyone who has recently travelled to the USA or on a cruise and was able to get full insurance cover.
Travel Insurance with heart condition - British Heart Fou...
Hi - bearing in mind I do have other medical conditions as well as heart issues, my annual insurance for the last 3 years has been between £450-550 for worldwide cover including USA & Caribbean. I had my OHS in October 2018 . As I travel quite a lot, it is well worth it for me to know I am adequately covered.
I do not know how much they would charge for a single-trip policy but often if you are travelling more than once within 12 months it is beneficial to take the annual policy.
Sweden, Norway, Russia, a Baltic cruise. I’ve been to Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal in the past year, and the most expensive was Spain, at £92.
A tip, which someone gave me ; always wait until close to your travel time to get insurance. Most of the cost of the premium is to cover the cost of the holiday if you can’t go, whereas I’m more interested in covering my medical expenses if something happens. My holidays are never very expensive so I don’t mind taking the risk of early cancellation.
Where are you going?
That's very interesting to know and something which I will certainly bear in mind. I've always insured as soon as I've booked as hols have been quite expensive.
Haven't anywhere planned in the very near future but hopefully later next year. We are both awaiting med appts and I was admitted with stage 3 Acute Kidney Injury a few weeks ago....will let the land settle a bit!!!
I've been quoted 3k for a cruise from Southampton to US !!! Could not find any thing alot cheaper. Recent quite for 7dsy cruise to Europe..incl Spain was £900 +
I'm hoping that now I haven't had any AF admissions for over 17 months I can get better quote!
I'm glad we did our bucket list cruises when we were younger as it looks like husband may have Parkinson's now🙄
I did an existing medical conditions search with 'compare the market' & got the best quote (about £130) for world annual with Now - had never heard of them before but they came up reasonably on Trustpilot & fortunately I've had no need to seek healthcare on my travels so far...ultimately I think the cost of cover probably comes down to how recently you've had any active treatment so for once I could thank the general negligence of my referral system for saving me a few quid at least...
