    We are from Spain, my husband was diagnosed in August 2018 with glioblastoma and doing good so far.

    My husband bucket list trip is to travel to USA. We would like to go to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las vegas this summer but the problem is that i cant get any travel insurance here in Spain because of his preexisting condition.

    Do you know if Is there any american insurance company where I can get it?

    I do not know about travel insurance but a quick google search found this they won't pay for the expected costs of treating the condition but they will pay for unexpected acute onset of problems. Talk to them to see exactlly what would be covered or not. Obvioulsy that is a big trip if he is not feeling good and has been stable for a while... but if stable it should be fantastic! Have fun and let us know what you find about the insurance

      Hello...we’re having the same problem with travel to Canada to visit our family, we’re UK nationals living in Spain.

      I’ve searched online but can’t find anything.

      Can you point us to any companies for there.

      Many thanks for any help & info.

        I sympathize with your situation. It's terrible when a loved one can't fulfill their desires because of well-being. I have looked at the insurance offers thrown into the group, and they are acceptable. However, I think there are more profitable travel insurance packages on the market. Last year, we went to Hawaii with my wife to see She bought us health insurance for two for a meager price. I can ask her which agency she applied to if you're interested. I hope that your husband will get better soon. Good luck!

          Although I travel a lot, I have never taken out insurance. I find it unnecessary. In addition, in some countries, I do not stay longer than three days, and many companies refuse to make insurance for such a short time. A week ago I returned from a trip to Germany. I bought tickets for the train at I was surprised that this site asked for travel insurance. However, it is still an optional item. If someone makes insurance, why and for what? Waiting to hear from you.

            Amy - do you have a brain tumor? Anyone with a malignant brain tumor would be crazy not to have insurance. The costs of a hospital visit and MRI are insane. I know people from outside the USA who come here and do not have insurance here get hit with $50,000 to $1 million bills.

              Wow, it's cool that you and your husband want to keep travelling. In America, it is quite easy to get health insurance, especially if you are a tourist. It seems to me that it is enough for you to find an insurance company and insure your life there, just in case. It was much more serviceable to find an insurance company in Berlin. My husband and I called a bunch of companies, but nothing suited us. Then we found a free walking tour Berlin where we got insurance for a couple of weeks. So in America, such a procedure takes much less time.
