Am trying to get travel insurance to cover me in the USA and Mexico in April 2022. Any recommendations please ?
Hi Leffster and a warm welcome to the online community
A holiday to the USA and Mexico sounds lovely but it's important to make sure you can get insurance before booking it. Unfortunately 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.
Make sure that you have all the information to hand about your diagnosis and treatment before contacting the insurers. This is a list of things an insurance provider might want to know when you're applying for insurance. Some providers might ask for a letter from your doctor saying that you are well enough to travel. This could come from your cancer team or GP.
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
