I haven`t been on here for ages! We are now taking my 77yr old mum and my brother on holiday with us to Majorca in May. I have to get them both a weeks travel insurance. My brother is still recovering from a car acident 3 yrs ago, will that bump up his prmium? My mum is 77 and so far all the web sites I have found won`t insure her, too old! Help!
If your brother is still receiving any hospital treatment as a result of the car accident he had three years ago, this will have to be declared along with any pre existing conditions either of them may have.
I would personally not rely solely on an E111 form for travel insurance, this just gives basic care.
Would suggest you get travel insurance from an insurance company instead. Try Columbus, they're usually pretty good.
triplets - just got my Which? magazine and has great article on travel insurance.
Anyway, their best buys for a single trip(15 days ) to Europe for anyone aged 75+ are:
First Rate Travel £23
Lloyds TSB - £32 this is their online price, but it's cheaper to phone apparently
Barclays - £35 online price, cheaper to phone
Columbus Direct Super - £37 only available over the phone
