Insurance comparison site, Confused.com, have recently launched a brand new service allowing customers with pre existing medical conditions to compare across a range of providers to find cover before heading off on holiday this summer.
Travellers with pre existing medical conditions often face an uphill battle when trying to obtain cover as their medical condition means they are pegged as a higher risk group as they are more likely to claim on their policy compared to a traveller with no medical conditions. Due to the increased risk, many insurers are very careful about the conditions they cover, while some refuse to provide cover altogether for those with pre existing medical conditions.
Now Confused.com have teamed up with a range of specialist insurance companies who all offer travel insurance for those with medical conditions. The new services was launched on May 14th 2012 and will enable customers to input their pre existing medical along with their other information to compare across a range of travel insurance policies, helping them find the find right policy at the right price.
Confused.com say that not having a clean medical record should be an obstacle to finding affordable travel insurance and believe that their new service will make the process of finding suitable cover for those with pre existing medical conditions much less of a chore.
