We have a trip booked with my in-laws and have travel insurance for the trip. My in laws have separate Insurance.

One of them has found out they have cancer and they have made the decision not to travel.

Hubby and I, while still travelling, have decided not to do the cruise and Rome that we had planned, as we hope to now do this at a later date if our in laws are better.

So we hoped to change our itinary just to the UK as we are to attend a wedding there but with the same flights and dates.

Our travel insurance said that we can use our policy, to cancel our cruise etc, but would not still be able to do the journey as it was our decision to cut the cruise and Rome.

Are we able to claim our cancellations with the 1st insurance company and take out another policy for the adjusted trip? Frankly it is all so ludicrous and we are supposed to leave in two weeks.

It would pay to check with your new insurer to be on the safe side. I don't see why not though, as you would be covering a new trip without your cruise or your holiday in Rome (you would simply be covering a trip to the UK).
