    think you will find the ones that travel the most dont bother to insure for it . by the time you have health .break down ,recovery . etc you cant afford to go away . use the ehic . it works . if your vehicle breaks down just get it fixed . works for thousands out there .

    We've proved it works but it goes pear shaped if you need evacuation to UK.

    Hi
    What is the maximum single trip cover, 30, 60 90, or 180 which is what's required for the longer trips. Pete :Smile:

    Try American Express , google the number in Brighton , excellent service , been with them a few years now around £145 for anual travel for 2 of us , i had a stent fitted over 4 years ago and " other" companies were quoting £450 just for me ,,,,,,,,,
    I made a claim last year for Doctors bill and medication for a tooth abcess got refunded within a week and a nice letter asking if all had settled down and hoped that it had not spoilt my holidays .

    It would cover you getting back to the UK if you were "fit for discharge" from hospital but not fit to travel or perhaps drive. If you have had a stroke for instance or an MI or an operation then a lot of us would want to be back home near family and friends for our possibly lengthy recovery. That's why a lot of us want and are willing to pay for insurance, we just like to get a good deal. :Smile:
