    Surely if they decide not to continue cover it's them cancelling not me.

    HolidaySafe claim problems
    I have never had to make a claim on travel insurance before, but earlier this year I had to cancel a trip because I was diagnosed with a partly detached retina on the day of travel and was told I should not fly.
    I sent all supporting information required (receipts, doctors letters, evidence of what was non-refundable, credit card statements, etc) and my claim was referred to a claims company: TCF.
    They have consistently blocked my claim insisting that I need to provide a 'Cancellation Invoice' for each element of the claim. No doubt easy if you book a tour through one UK company. Not so easy if you booked online directly with small Asian airlines.
    Maybe I have just been unlucky, but when my policy comes up for renewal with HS I shall be looking carefully for an insurer that has a better reputation for claims handling - even if I have to pay out a little more for it.

    I do not know. I always do an international health insurance in the firm that deals with this. She assures me the help because is cooperating with medical centres of those countries that I visit.
    Once I got splinters in the nail at the beach in Thailand. I had wonderful help at the hospital in Bangkok. Otherwise I would have wrung space price, and may even refuse to treat if the disease is not fatal.
