    I've just tried for some quotes for travel insurance and I have been declined by 3 companies :( - they all asked how long ago I had surgery. Do you think I'm looking too soon and if I wait until just before we go I might get accepted as there is just under 4 months to go I am completely stuck if I can't get insurance :(









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.

    Luckily we get free travel insurance with our Natwest Black cc and it sure came in handy when I had to have some dental treatment a few years ago when we were in Florida.
    Doesn`t the same apply to you Wendy?

    No, because I have pre-existing conditions, I have to pay extra for them

    I was not aware that you could be declined for travel insurance. Who do you usually use?

    Thanks so much for that Michelle. I have gone through the form to the point where they say they wont cover cancer but still give me the form to fill in, so I presume I can take out insurance with them but remain uncovered for my condition. I think I will ring them tomorrow just to check that they really only want 52. Nobody is going to cover me for that anyway so if they only want 52 that is fine by me.
    Wendy, I hop you get the cover you need. Good luck.
