    Hi, we are Vic & Hils and a dog called Poppy.
    Sold up house, took early retirement and have been full-timing since 4th July 2013 - and we are LOVIN' IT!
    Been round quite a bit of the UK saying farewell to family & friends before we head off to Europe. We have some more family & friends to visit in France & Spain before we head to Portugal for the winter. This is all very new to us so any hints, tips and advice greatly appreciated.
    Couple of questions: -
    1. How or who can you get full-time insurance with?
    2. Do you recommend travel and pet insurance when abroad?
    Look forward to hearing from some experts.
    Vic & Hils

    Hi and welcome to the fun. Comfort do full time insurance I believe but you won't see much change from £2k love to be proven wrong.

    :Eeek:

    I fulltime with Comfort and pay about a third of that. Still not cheap compared to non-fulltime insurance but not exorbitant either. :Smile:

    Hi,

    Safeguard insure us for 365 days at £320. NfU are good for all other insurances full time.

    Of course, if you don't have a UK address, then you run into problems.

    Good luck with the trip. Happy to answer any questions

    regards

    Billkce

    Hello Vic, Hils and Poppy. Welcome to FUN :BigGrin:

    We are full time (no house) the only (I think) company that provide fulltime insurance are Comfort.
    We paid £878 which includes breakdown cover across Europe.

    We also travel with our dog and our Sainsburys pet insurance covers us abroad to a lower limit, but we have found that vet costs are a lot lower for the few things we have had done (just a visit for the passport)

    Glad you are loving it! We do too and looking forward to another winter down south :thumb:

    Any more info feel free to ask.

    Paul & Sharon
