Hi all, just here for a moan.
I have spent 2 hours on the phone today trying to get my travel insurance organised. After the first call I was declined. I then phoned the company I used last year who charged me around £40 for my weeks skiing. This year there were all sorts of extra questions, culminating with the bombshell that they have to record both Ovarian Cancer and PPC as different conditions. Now I have to wait for up to 10 working days for them to phone me to ask me more questions.
I don’t know how every one else feels, but I was frazzled by the end of the calls - it’s hard enough being ill in the first place, but having to explain and clarify a really difficult set of ailments seemed so demeaning and upsetting. Generally I make light of having cancer and feel really positive, but today has really knocked my mood.
The young woman I spoke to was kind in a sort of detached sort of way. I know she’s not medical and that the insurance company have to assess risk, but I’m really fed up. now.
Anyway, I know some of you lovelies have recommended companies on here, and I just wonder what you all think is a reasonable amount of money to pay for a week’s holiday for just medical cover, if you’re happy to share.
Thank you for listening to a moan, it’s good to have you to here.
Love to all, Ali
