Decided on next aim which is holiday in Sept on the Costa.Plenty of vit.,D,no stress(I hope),sangria and relaxation.Booked a beautiful hotel,booked flexi flights so all I had to do was get travel insurance.Not a bother I thought! Until I actually went about getting it.I checked the Irish Cancer Society web page.Got the list of possible insurers for cancer patients.Of the 5 I checked on line,only one would insure,for €1089.00 for one week!When I rang another insurance they told me I needed to send in blood results,scan report and consultants letter for fit to go on holiday.
O.k my problem with all this is,
A If I was symptomatic or unwell ,then I wouldn't even think of going on holiday.
B companies that advertise that they insure pre existing conditions,should state at the start that they don't insure terminally ill cancer patients.
C ,one of the questions that kept popping up on a few insurance sites was,If Terminally diagnosed,How long from date of arrival home is the out On my way! Of your prognosis.In other words How long have I got to live from arriving home.Hmm! Drop down gave me the choice of from 1 month to 12 months.No one could possibly know how long I've got to live,I could get knocked down crossing the road tomorrow!
So what to do?! I've got my European Health Card,I'll be on the mainland and there are flights back home or near enough to home on a hourly basis.The "Only" reason I was getting insurance was to give hubby some peace of mind,with regard to air ambulance costs being met.Any advice or knowledge of above quandary would be greatly appreciated.And yes I should have probably checked insurance before I booked holiday.
