Hi everyone, I promised 3 weeks ago to let you know how I got on over my annual travel insurance. Renewal of my ins with More Than (as an retired member of staff) was over £700 then when I checked details I noticed an omission of one tablet which had been changed as Manufacturer had ceased making them, doc changed tab and as it was within 6 months of renewal ins went up £98, yes £98. I then got in touch with Able2travel who were very nice but as I was taking one more med than they would insure they said the best bet was for me to ins with All Clear Travel (these two insurers work out of the same office). They took my details as given to Able2travel plus the extra med and offered me standard insurance for over £450 which would give me half the cover I am used to. I then filled out the application for cover on Flexi Cover Direct site who also said they would only give me half the cover I am used to for around £429. I then rang More Than again and asked could they advise me over the newly prescribed tablet and they advised me to wait for 6 months after the first prescription for the new drug and then I would only need to pay £700 plus. My husband and I are bemused. We are afraid to travel with only £5m medical insurance as we have always had £10m, so as we are not planning to travel until next year we are waiting. However, I must admit I am concerned about waiting as any little change in meds seems to put the policy cost up. I am going to see my Consultant next week and I am now concerned in case he changes any meds. If anyone else out there has any advice, please do tell me. I would love to hear your opinons. Thanks for listening, Maximonkey
