I know there's a current thread about travel insurance through a bank but I don't have that so need to look elsewhere.
I'm an inveterate traveller and the idea that my stage 1a diagnosis in Dec, treated with surgery but nothing else, is going to clip my wings is quite a concern!
I usually get annual insurance which covers me for "adventure sports" (because I go hillwalking and need cover to high altitude for that). My insurance expires in March and they've told me that they cannot cover me for ANY pre-existing conditions now (not even my well-controlled blood pressure which they were happy to cover before).
My daughter lives in Spain so I will definitely be going abroad through the year. I'm tempted to not bother with travel insurance; I have my EHIC card and if I'm ill in Spain I can use their health system if it's an emergency and come home if it isnt'!
Is there any point even asking other companies if they'll cover me for this first year post-diagnosis? Should I just stay at home and walk on British mountains instead? Is there a good company that will cover everything bar cancer stuff?
Any ideas? what about the 2nd year after diagnosis, do the insurance companies get more relaxed then? (I'm planning ahead!) Any point even looking for annual policies or should I take things one trip at a time?
