Which? responds to FCA action on signposting travel insurance for consumers with medical conditions

Gareth Shaw, Head of Money, Which?, said
“This much-needed action from the FCA could save holidaymakers with medical conditions huge sums by directing them to the most affordable policies that best meet their needs. For too long we have heard from consumers left struggling to find suitable cover – so this is a crucial intervention.

“The FCA must now apply rigorous criteria to ensure only the companies offering appropriate travel insurance appear on the directory – and to review its effectiveness in providing the affordable and suitable policies that those with medical conditions desperately need.”
