Watch out for premiums

I thought it worth drawing the attention of your readers to the fact that BMA Travel Insurance Services are using a company, MediQuote, to endorse medical information and charging a premium to do so.

Even when the information is unchanged from year to year, they require the policyholder to contact this organisation and pay for the privilege.

There is no information in

their policy documentation to indicate this is required

every year with policy renewals.

I have drawn the matter to their attention and suggested they might be more straightforward in indicating there is an additional £15 charge.

Readers may well find other insurance companies, for instance Marks and Spencer, offer more competitive premiums without any such requirements and have a more sensible approach to asking necessary medical information.
