Post by red » 25 Jun 2013 13:47

So far I've been quoted for 1 week in Crete.
From Good to go:
Standard ins: £161.82 just for repatriation £500 excess
Gold £200.84 Repatriation and insurance on holiday £75 excess
Platinum: £257.61 no excess repatriation and med cover. no excess.

Freedom Ins £156.44 Repatriation included. £75 excess

Able to Travel are getting back to me

I do have other medical problems which bump up my holiday insurance quotes not just MDS.

ps. Just had a quote from All Clear Ins. Gold plus: covers repatriation and all other items you would expect from holiday insurance £164.47 I am travelling with a non family member who has his own insurance and for an extra £15 it will cover him to come back with me if I have to be repatriated.
And Columbus insurance have just quoted £64.77

Hi there,
Just to let you know that I have used Columbus now for the last three years and found them to be reasonable and also that my premium has come down each year and is now £72.55 for this year for an Annual Multi-trip policy covering Europe.
