    Travel Insurance, which company?



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I went to renew my Travel Insurance (not vehicle insurance) for this year & was horrified by the horrendous quotes, some up to 800.

    I need an annual multi-trip policy, we are both in our late 70s & are away for long periods at a time in Europe.

    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.

    We only use the ehic over 60 with pre exiting would just cost us to much . We spend maybe 6 months of the year abroad. I have often thought what do Brit immigrants do when they go and live in Spain for example....do they have private insurance or rely on the ehic?

    I set up a Flexiplus account with Nationwide, 10 month, breakdown cover here and Europe, holiday insurance cover and other bits and pieces. I pay 90 a year on top of that so I can have extended trips of 3 months at a go. Works ok but if I was out of the country longer might have to look elsewhere. Btw, don't have anything in the account.

    Paying Too Much?

    There's no way I'd rely on just EHIC - there's so much it doesn't cover.
    I'm over 60 and got pre existing medical issues. The best deals I've found are with Paying Too Much. Give them a try!

    I thought you were with ADAC for breakdown cover.

    Unfortunately, their cover seems to be for 31 days, only, per trip, so that wouldn't be much use to many motorhomers.

    I was with ADAC when I took out Flexiplus. Even with ADAC still works out cheaper. As I said, other benefits e.g. Mobile phone insurance.
