    Hi Folks, I am thinking of a trip to Morroco next April in my Land Rover Camper, and I need to think about travel/health insurance, my last experience with this problem(ie flying to Oz) led me to believe that these companies seem to think that once we are over 65years of age, we will drop dead, if we leave the shores of the UK. I would be thank full for any and all info, ideas, sugestions on this subject. 2bigH.

    I am in late 50's and find the best way is a yearly worldwide family policy, and are with Columbus at present.They accept my various health problems which are reasonably serious without loading the policy to much...I think it was £140 for the 4 of us (I have 2 teenagers)

    I believe it gets difficult over 70 and you may have to find a specialist insurer then.....All I can recommend is shop around, but I am sure someone will be a long with some recommendations:BigGrin:

    I used to have a swedish demountable camper, great when the kids where young, but we outgrew it and have a Euramobil now:Wink:

    Try Ehic plus. They are very reasonable and use the EHIC card for the basic health insurance and provide extras such as repatriation.

    OH and me both with HPB on medication for annual multi-trip insurance and max 45 day trip about £50.

    Saga are normally very reasonable for the over 50's (appartently they don't age discriminate) you should try them

    Hi We needed to renew our house insurance and are with direct line the renewal was a 1/3 more expensive this year so I rang them to find out why and they said because I don’t get a third off as a new customer.:Sad: like I did last year
    So I looked on the internet and found if I take out a new policy with them I could pay half the amount for the same policy or if I went for the plus policy at a cost of slightly less than the first quote to renew that they sent me I will have world travel insurance for the family thrown in,:Doh: all this and I have not looked at other companies, so it pays to look around.:thumb:

    Hi 2bigH

    You do not say how long you are expecting to be travelling, but you could also look at The Camping and Caravanning Club's Carefree Travell service.

    They offer single trip, multi trip or long stay policies.

    We have the multi trip which allows 183 days in the contract year, (and you can start the policy on the departure day, the restriction is any trip must not exceed 91 days.

    You do have to be a member, but as a member you would also qualify for their RAC Arrival scheme for European cover for your camper.

    Good luck and have a safe trip when you go.
