My CA125 levels have recently risen slightly above normal and my GP has booked a scan (having had surgery and chemo for ovarian cancer in the past). I'm going to Canada in August 2013 with my daughters for three weeks. I have asked for a quote to cover all medical conditions, including pre-existing, and it was nearly £3000 (as much as the actual holiday!). I simply can't afford this.
I am considering insurance that doesn't cover pre-existing conditions as I feel physically fine at the moment and could fly home at a fraction of the cost if I felt ill. Is this a viable solution? Should we take out travel insurance separately or all go on one policy? Should we look for insurance that covers cancellation?
