Holiday insurance

I am having immunotherapy for melanoma. I am cancer free now but my insurance company won’t insure me. Can anyone recommend an insurance company. I’ve heard Boots are good. Thanks

Thank you

Hi, yes boots have been brilliant for me. I’ve used them numerous times over the last 7 years. I have stage 4 lung cancer. Last year I paid around £30 for our family (2 adults and 2 children) to go in Europe. The only thing I couldn’t get was annual/multi trip insurance.

Thanks Sam

Insurance with, AllClear travel, Paying too much, Cloud Cover, Saga are all insurers I've used in the last few years. This autumn was the first time since resuming travel in 2016 that I've been able to obtain an annual policy as Saga has changed its question from 'have you ever been diagnosed with cancer'? to 'have you in the last 5 years been diagnosed with cancer'.

Thank you Janette I’ll look into them. The cheapest quote I was quoted is £700 to travel in Europe
