Confused.com launches new travel insurance service
Ever been ineligible for standard travel insurance due to a pre-existing medical condition? Well, Confused.com has introduced a solution to this problem and will be launching a new price comparison service on 14 May 2012 that allows travellers with pre-existing medical conditions to get a quick and easy travel insurance policy.
Confused.com has teamed up with specialist travel insurers to allow people to compare travel insurance companies that cover pre-existing medical conditions meaning consumers no longer have to search hundreds of insurers only to find out they will not insure them.
Travellers with pre-existing medical conditions will be only too aware of the difficulties in obtaining a travel insurance policy which covers them.
Comparing travel insurance with Confused.com means people can search the market to find their best quotes available for travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions.
Confused.com’s new service allows customers to select their particular condition and will only show accurate prices by providers who will cover them; saving the customer time.
Kate Rose, Head of Travel insurance said: “At Confused.com we understand that not everyone has a perfect medical record and that shouldn't prevent you from enjoying travel as much as anyone else.”
“Those with pre-existing conditions are seen as customers who would pose a greater risk of claiming, resulting in them paying higher premiums and fewer insurers to choose from. Therefore many people might find it tempting to not declare more minor conditions such as asthma etc simply to save the hassle, but if you need to claim the insurer will find out that you have a pre-existing medical condition and your policy will be void. This could then result in you having to pay out for expensive medical bills.”
“Having travel insurance when you have pre-existing medical conditions is very important and making sure you have the right policy that suits your individual needs is more so. So we advise that you shop around and compare with Confused.com to get a great deal on your travel insurance.”
