Noted Boots get good mentions on this site.Last November when my insurer refused to cover me for anything just because a second gastroscopy was planned and before lymphoma was diagnosed I did online searches .The two cheapest were underwritten by the same company that Boots used. As I was about to buy the press reported that this underwriter was being investigated by the FCA and its doctors were being investigated by the GMC. I have heard no more on this .But cheapest is often for a reason.
Hi treepie and welcome to the travel insurance group.
Who did you decide to buy your travel insurance from in the end?

Not sure this would be useful as it was single trip insurance and before my cancer was diagnosed but it was JustTravelcover . The real test is not who will provide insurance , but which companies pay out on claims and bring the sick and deceased back to the UK without a multitude of quibbles and difficulties. That is the information we need .
You are quite right treepie, it's just as important to know how good the company is on paying out as it is to know how much it costs for the insurance.
I can recommend one company that our daughter uses, they paid out promptly and without quibble when she needed to cancel a long haul holiday due to having ear infection and sinusitis, it would have been far too dodgy for her to fly (she’s a freelance musician who has a very low immune system as a result of her illness)
the company she uses with an annual policy is Insurancewith.com she travels regularly and world wide for work as well as pleasure.
