My Dad has a heart attack 3years ago come September, he had a stent fitted at the time and thankfully has been fit and healthy since then. Him and my uncle are planning to go out to see family in Vancouver in September for 3 weeks however the cost of travel insurance is almost as much as the flight.
The questions the companies are asking are all the same, and it seems as if no matter how long ago the heart attack occurred you still present the same risk to an insurer. All ask if the attack was more or less than 6 weeks ago, he could hardly walk 6 weeks after he was discharged from hospital yet 3 years on he is as fit and healthy as I have seen him in a long time.
The numbers we have been quoted range from £500 to £600 for a single trip policy. He could go without cover for pre existing conditions and it could set him back around £130 for the policy.
Anybody had similar issues? any companies out there who you can recommend?
