I thought I'd got everything sorted for our holiday starting on Thursday. I'd navigated the vagaries of the Spanish COVID paperwork and arranged our travel insurance. £185 for an annual policy, Europe for the 2 of us.
Checking the paperwork this morning I noticed that my wife needed to declare some new medication. Pain relief patches prescribed for chronic joint pain. We all know what insurance companies are like. They will use any excuse to avoid a payout ( not that I intend to make a claim😇)
So I called InsureWith, went through all the questions, only to be declined a policy😡. My wifes patch is an opioid and that scared them off. I was referred to AllClear who were delighted to offer me cover at over £400!! I can only assume that InsureWith were worried that my wife might cover herself with patches and get "off her head". At this late stage I didn't have too much time to do any further research so I duly paid up.
The upside is at least we are sorted for our next 4 holidays ( + any more I can squeeze in) 👍
