Who is going to apply pressure to the insurance companies? The UK government won't because they don't want us to travel.

I will be cancelling my policy and going with staysure if I go at all. Not too bothered going without any insurance if I have to as the EHIC card should cover medical problems and as the flights were only 25 each way times two I can afford to lose that. I own the accommodation and it has buildings and contents insurance so what else can go wrong? I have never claimed on an any insurance policy in my life.

It seems to me that a major stumbling block in getting people travelling again is the Foreign Office advising on only essential travel thus invalidating travel insurance policies. Isn't about time pressure was put on the Insurance companies to provide policies that cover the Foreign Office advice for all age groups to help the tourist industry recover. Quarantine isn't a problem for a lot of people but lack of travel insurance is. I can't really see an improvement in things until A) there are insurance policies for all age groups that covers Foreign Office advice or B) there is a vaccine.
 I wonder if there are any figures published that show what the Insurance companies made form the premiums and how much they paid out in claims.

Because the cases in the Canaries are way above the 20 / 100,000 per week. They do seem to be past the peak now and on the way down and we are on the way up to meet them.

Government putting Portugal on quarantine list, but not Madera or the Azores. So why don't they do the same for the Canaries?

Sandylea, then it was illegal! An EHIC card guarantees treatment reciprocal between participating countries and the cost passed to your country of residence. When my husband had 17000 worth of treatment in Candelaria I had to give EHIC and details of when and how long wed been in Tenerife but that was it, three years ago. Im sorry you had that experience but I know quite a few people who have been To the green clinic And wondered why theyd not been treated with EHIC card.When in fact its a private hospital. Admittedly it does take some state hospital patients who are Spanish residents, but that is an agreement between the state of Spain and hospiten Sur.

We were in the EU for more than a few years, as I have said before we were the only Country that adhered to the rules & the laws in the EU, thank god we are leaving.

I see they are rattling their chains again, don't they realize they are not dealing with D C or T M anymore they are dealing with Boris & the man is not for turning.
