    Travel Insurance 12th Jul 17 at 11:53 AM
    Hi, I apologise if this is on the wrong forum, please redirect me if it is.
    In May I booked a holiday for 7 of us to go to Cyprus (5 family plus mother in law and son's girlfriend), the holiday cost over 4,500 and we leave next Sunday (July 23rd). My wife was told on the weekend that she has a cyst on her ovary and cannot fly. I have family travel insurance with Lloyds Bank for us 5 as I have a Platinum account, but the other 2 have taken their own out. Are they likely to re-imburse all 5 of us or just my wife for not being able travel ? Will they re-imburse us at all ? Is there any other way to get my money back for the whole holiday ? My wife still wants the 6 of us to go, but none of us want to go without her.
    Any advice would be appreciated please, I have never claimed on holiday insurance before so dont know what the protocol is.

    You need to look at the terms of the various policies. Most will cover cancellation by close relatives of the person who is too ill to travel.some of the people may be too remote.It would also do no harm to phone the claims lines and see what they say. If they say no to some of the other travellers they may prefer to go.
