Hi....now I'm in my 70's, annual European travel insurance for me and my wife has gone up from £150 to £300.
I wondered what others in my age group are paying ? ...anyone suggest where I can try ?

I know my mum with diabetes, high blood pressure etc always used the Post Office without paying anything like that amount. She was in her late 70's when she last went abroad a couple of years ago - she now sticks to Scotland on coach tours as she can't be doing with the hassle at the airports now she's 81!!
I used SAGA and foud their rates excellent for over 70s, about £130 last christmas.
I'm in my 60's. in the last few years I've had angina, high blood pressure, 1 heart attack, bowel cancer thankfully caught in time and holiday insurance was a real nightmare, wife has high blood pressure. Allclear travel insurance (google it, not sure if I'm allowed to post the link) will insure most ailments, they did for me providing your upfront with the truth without any hassle or medicals, cost us £251.00 for the both of us and that was full cover for the year
have a look at Moneysaving expert's website...they suggest a couple of possibles (incl Allclear)
or moneysupermarket's quote system
We're with Barclays and I pay £15 a month for my account but get free travel insurance...I have medical conditions and they included these after I spoke to their medical screeners 9other banks do similar deals I believe and sometimes your home insurnace will also provide travel insurance). Worth exploring the options
Mike, Dont know who you bank with,but I am 80+,, and Nat West insured me and wife for workdwide for £200 + monthly charge of £12.50 annual and I have diabetes+ischaemic heart disease etc
cheers everyone, some good pointers there...I'll be checking them all out.
....and good luck to your mum looloobey...long may she reign
thanks again all....Mike
