Traval Insurance

A friend of mine phoned me today to say she was about to re-insure her annual policy with the Post Office and it now says that Turkey and Eygpt are not included in Europe with them anymore,and that she will have to take out Worldwide which costs more !! Check who you are insuring with,this is now happening with a few travel insurance companys.

Hi..

We renewed ou anual policy in Jan,with direct travel and Turkey is still included in there european policy but not Eygpt..I made sure of that as someone else had told me the post office did not include Turkey..

Good point though to make people aware of this when buyin travel insurance.. Thanks..

I am insured with Insure and Go because they included Turkey,Tunisia and Egypt as our previous company Direct Insurance no longer included Tunisia and Egypt and these are the 3 countries we visit.

My friend got a quote from the Post Office last October it didnt include Spain!

She has quite a few pre existing conditions but Insure and Go covered her .

And I have nothing but praise for Insure & Go as we had need of their services while in Turkey last year - they were brilliant.

Ours is due to be renewed in August and I have a feeling t will be either sky high or they wont insure us because of adding new medications which are only given as a preventative measure.

It looks like we will be on coach tours of the UK after August!
