I bought travel insurance through one of these price comparison websites. Was supposed to fly to Spain for a few days tomorrow (Tues) but a work issue has meant I'm having to go on Weds instead. Couldn't change the flights as its cheap and cheerful airlines etc. Rest of the group is still going tomorrow (jack! ). I rang the insurance people to be told i couldn't claim. No mention of me being in the military etc, I just said there was a work problem and they said 'no'. So my question are: Are there companies that would cover you for this sort of thing? Would I (presuming there was the option) have paid much more to be covered for this sort of thing? Is there any point in actually having travel insurance bar for the medical side of things?
