Hi....for the last dozen years we have had an annual policy with Boots, this has gradually increased in price, this last year being 175.
When it comes up for renewal in August I will be 76 and they will not renew.

Does anyone of my age have this type of policy or can recommend any company that does over 75 ?

....appreciate suggestions....thanks....Mike

I remember we found good deals from Age Concern when my father-in-law had a similar issue, albeit for him the concern was when he reached 70.

Don't do over 70!

We're with Liverpool Victoria, they're really good but I'm not sure they insure over 75s.

I put a good friend on to Saga, where she bought a years cover and she's definitely over 70. Pretty sure they don't have an upper age limit at all.

Check with your bank. Barclays do an add on to your current account which includes World Wide travel up to 80.
Might be worth your while opening an account with a few bob and taking advantage of this facility.
