Travel Insurance Dilemma

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I am flying to Sydney on December 29th but still haven't got any travel insurance! When I have tried to get some with some of the main insurers in the UK they will only insure me until I come back to the UK - which will probably be next Christmas for a holiday. Its going to cost me around £300 to £400 for a years insurance but I only want to be insured for the couple of days travelling. Has anyone else overcome this and where did you get insurance from?

I'd be grateful for any suggestions

Thanks

Rachel

Multi trip annual insurance for the family shouldn't be that much, around £100 for a decent level of cover.

I bought mine at the airport on the way out for 2 weeks (From Boots) and when you arrive in Australia you can register for Medicare.

You need a policy that covers one way trips. I'm pretty sure the Post Office does these, and you can get cover for so many days after you arrive. I don't think any annual multi-trip policies will cover one-way.


She'll be right!

Hi

You can get Globelink travel insurance. It is an UK based insurance company and they provide cover when you are away.

I would not find better value and service anywhere else.

Just Google them.

Hi there

Try "Go walkabout" on line and you can also call them if you have any questions......we have gone with them for our one way ticket to Queensland......21 day policy for the 3 of us for £120 i think.....something like that.That policy is covering us for our 3 day stop in Singapore.......very helpful staff on the phone.:)
