    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 ?

    .....thanks...Mike

    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!! Smile

    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

    http://www.moneysupermarket.com/travel-insurance/pre-existing-medical-conditions...

    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 Smile
