Quoted over £2,700 for 10 day holiday to The Caribbean in March/April this year. I have peritoneal metastasis. Outrageous. May have to cancel and lose money if I can’t get insurance.
That does sound very expensive but I know from experience that it can be more difficult to find reasonably priced travel insurance when you've had a cancer diagnosis.
I don't know if you've had chance to look through the recommended travel insurance thread yet, as it's where the majority of recommendations from other forum members are. If not, clicking on the link I've created will take you straight there. You might also want to look at this thread as it includes a link to a Travel Insurance Directory.
Lots of people here recommend that it's best to phone the insurance companies rather than try and do online quotes as often at the end of the online quote it will tell you to phone the company and you'll then have to go through all the information again. Also sometimes the broker can refer to the underwriters to see if they would provide cover when an online quote might just give you a straight refusal.
I do hope that you can find some reasonably priced travel insurance so that you don't have to cancel your holiday.
Do come back and let us know how you get on
