    Had another look, but still seems to be 31 days, max, for annual multi trip, which is what we need.

    I realise it won't come cheap but that price is over double what we paid last year.

    I'm thinking of not getting any & relying on EHIC.

    What do you guys do in a similar situation?, I'd be grateful for any advice.

    Another vote for LV here. We have used them several times for trips beyond the EU and they offer reasonable rates, good cover and - most importantly for us - a maximum trip length of 90 days for us old fogies. Jenny has a couple of pre-existing conditions and the annual policy works out at around 300.

    On the other hand, when spending time in Spain, we rely wholly on EHIC. The health service down here is excellent and free. The problem with EHIC is that the standard of care varies from member country to member country so you need to check it out for where you are going before deciding whether you need extra cover. Also, EHIC doesn't include repatriation but that doesn't matter to us; if it matters to you then you need insurance. Our motorhome insurance (with Safeguard) includes bringing the van back home if I become incapacitated.

    Therefore, if I deposit 2.5 thou into the account, I'll get 75 interest to come off the 120 yearly cost but I'll have to add 90 for the prolonged period, which still sounds reasonable for worldwide travel insurance. There's also other benefits like mobile phone insurance.

    Or am I missing something here???

    As an adjunct ref the ski insurance. Spoke to a semi ex-pat on the ski lift today who says he uses normal insurance/ehic? But then bumps it up with local ski cover "skineige" or something like that, sorry, I'm being a bit vague as haven't had the chance to do my normal, geeky, internet research around the ideas.
    But given that to move from 45 to 60 day cover, which we did purely because of the ski issues, cost us an extra 112 it's something I will investigate.

    That's 31 days cover per holiday, per countrie visit. Covered us for three holidays one year. Peace of mind and great value.
    Spent quite a bit of time researching on line and they came back as very good value for money.
    Cheers.

    I haven't got anything in my account. I just transfer 10 to it every month.

    Carol, just thought of something.

    Does that flexiplus only cover one person or does it include a spouse?
