The Simpsons, from Hampshire, are all set for a fantastic holiday to Florida with appropriate travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions thanks to World First.

Their trip was booked over two and a half years ago, anticipating their son setting off to University. But in between Mrs Simpson was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has come through that and is, thankfully, remarkably well so the holiday serves as a double celebration.

However, Mr and Mrs Simpson both have diabetes and need medical insurance for this. Many of the insurance companies Mrs Simpson tried had an all or nothing approach to pre-existing medical conditions. Mrs Simpson googled travel insurance and pre-existing medical conditions and came across World First.

She called our customer service line to talk to someone about selecting specific cover for the pre-existing medical conditions which causes them concern and excluding those that don't. We confirmed that this was possible. Mrs Simpson felt at last she had a way forward.

Mrs Simpson says, "I was really struggling before I found World First. Your flexible approach was refreshingly sensible. The medical screening questions I was asked were very thorough and the advisor very knowledgeable and understanding."

World First was pleased to offer an annual policy for world wide travel, including the USA, Canada and the Carribean for £185. This included cover for the couple's diabetes, Mrs Simpson's hypercholesterol and hyperthyroid and Mr Simpson's sleep apnoea.

Mrs Simpson was absolutely delighted as she had previously had been quoted up to £3,000. She adds, "I would encourage anyone with a pre-existing medical condition to give World First a try. I've written a blog about my experience and hope it will direct anyone going through similar difficulties straight to you. Fellow bloggers all seem to say the same too – try World First first!!"
