Trying to get specialist travel insurance so I can visit family abroad as this will more than likely be my last Xmas with them is driving me nuts. I got quoted £1,300 for myself and the wife just fo a 6 day trip!!!!!

Anyone know of a good insurer to look at?

Look in the “Travel Insurance” group on this site. You will find a list of companies that we have found helpful. Macmillan are not able to recommend companies but as users we are...

Personally I use insurancewith.com, I suggest you phone them so you can clarify any questions

Good luck

Hi smudge

i used forces pension society 02078209988

you have to be or have been in forces ,or your parents or spouse ,i noticed you were in forces

your gp or consultant has to agree you are fit to travel and not terminal [whatever they class that as ]

i have secondary breast cancer,osteoporosis,have had blood clots but was covered as dad and dad in law in forces and consultant said i could travel ,we went on a cruise ,wasn’t too expensive ,considering my diagnosis ,annual policy for me and oh was 374 , worldwide ,

one of my friends used them ,had a claim and they paid out 

hope they can help you

positive thoughts

Hi smudge 

I am on MST and use MIA Online. Had to phone rather than complete on line but reasonable. 

Good luck
