Travel Insurance

Hi,
Sorry if I’m posting this in the incorrect area but I’m just wondering if anyone knows if there was a change to medical questions for travel insurance (UK).

One of the questions is “have you received an injection in the last 2 years to treat your illness”

I don’t remember this question last year so I either did it wrong or it’s new.

Last year I got 1 years european cover for around £100 and this year I’d be paying a minimum of £70 for a 3 week trip (Mexico)

A years North American cover would be over £300

The sites that “specialise” in medical cover are even more expensive.

I am still on Humira but feeling well at the moment and hopefully that continues.
I was just wondering what everyone’s thoughts are.

I have a Nationwide Bank account. Yes, its £13 per month and includes breakdown cover and worldwide travel insurance. I was on Humira and went to the US in May. Some of the quotes I got for travel insurance were ridiculous (£500-600). I paid an extra £100 with Nationwide. I found Nationwide good but it may not be for you. Hope that helps a bit.

Thanks for this!
I did try them last year and decided against it but I called them again and they gave me a quote of £86 plus £13 p/m so decided that was the best option.
