    Pre-existing Travel Insurance Guide Discussion 15th Apr 15 at 3:47 PM


    Hi,

    We've written a new pre-existing travel insurance guide for the website and we'd love your feedback.

    How did you find the info? Was it useful? Do you have any other tips you would add?

    Thanks for your help,

    MSE Rebecca

    I agree. The algorithm for calculating risk from common ailments being successfully treated by medical practitioners seems disproportionate to some of the quotes derived. Like all products - shop around.

    It is time a national campaign was launched against the exorbitant
    rates charged for pre med travel insurance.
    Most of those applying are being treated with the latest methods
    available and are in a better state of health than the hundreds of
    thousands who travel whilst being heavy drinkers /smokers/overweight/
    diabetic etc ,but for some reason have never been treated.
    These people are just as likely to claim as the so called
    high risk pre meds.
    I call on all major insurers to publicly prove and publish the figures
    that justify such large premiums.

    I was charged extra because my mediation had changed within the last 6 months. It was changed because the original one was upsetting my stomach. it had nothing to do with the condition.

    I also had travel insurance cancelled because I informed them that my pre declared blood pressure tablets were changed to a LOWER dose!! Unbelievable.
