    Just checking our travel insurance prior to setting off for warmer climes. Discovered that our Halifax Rewards runs out whilst we are away. It transpires that we would need to extend the nominal 30 day cover to a maximum 60 days (£150 ish extra). Problem is 60 days isn't long enough for the trip. The operative at Halifax says I'd be hard pressed to get a better quote for two over 60's (one with declared medical conditions - blood pressure doh).

    Any suggestions for an alternative before I have to start trawling the net and phoning round?

    Thanks in advance

    We have cover with the bank but they have now restricted it to 30 days...

    I have found it cheaper to take out a policy with Staysure, they cover a lot of conditions and you can have a annual policy with 100 day single trip .... From memory for the 2 of us Europe cover and that includes Morocco £88...

    Sorted - Staysure - single trip with cover up to four months for a couple of quid more than the Halifax Herbert wanted for 60 days - RESULT

    Thanks again Steve :thumb:
