Post Office travel insurance

Posted by

Hello all, can I just recommend the Post Office for travel insurance, which I booked after seeing it on the Macmillan main page. They only asked about 5 questions before providing a reasonable quote for travel to Europe (£41 for 8 days), with Hodgkin Lymphoma that I've finished scheduled treatment for but am waiting to have the final scan on.

This compares to 50+ questions from InsureWith, some of which got very technical, and in some cases none of the multiple choice questions reflected my circumstances. At the end of it all I was told to call their customer services, who then said I'd need to wait 5-7 days for their underwriters to call me.

Thanks a lot and have a lovely holiday
