I use these people

http://www.citybond.co.uk/

 

Just make sure any existing medical conditions are declared and covered if you have any. Just for a bit of fun I've posted a separate thread about conditions that are ignored by this insurer, entitled "medical conditions ignored". My Acronyx (ingrowing toe nail) is OK apparantly :-D

Open a Nationwide Flex Account and use their free travel insurance, also benefit from better exchange rates abroad if using their Debit or Credit card.

 

The OP wants more than 31 days, don't think any of these "free" bank bolt ons give that. :-(

For some years we have used Halifax, and this gives upto 60 days at any one time, no limit on how many trips per year.

 

May be worth trying the brokers/imsurers who you use for the motorhome insurance, as mine gave me a very very good quote if I wish to change when my present Halifax one expires.

 

As far as 'Bank account' ones are concerned - make sure what they include. A few years ago I could use mine through the Bank even though all I paid for directly from the account was the Ferry fares. They then changed the rules, and everything - ferry, accomodation, fuel etc had to come out of the account

 

I now have the opportunity to upgrade the Bank account (for a fee). This will give cover required, but max 31 days, and having checked the cost to extend to 60 days, it would be more than I'm would be paying for the Bank account for a year, and actually more than I already pay to the HAlifax for the cvoer foe the whole of 12months!

Have they opened this facility up again ? Last time I heard they were only providing this for existing customers and not to new applicants, unless you agreed to transfer all your banking arrangements to them.

Make sure you read small print for exclusions - its surprising what many of these policies exclude eg walking at 2000m+ . I have overnighted in m/home higher than that or taken a cable car up and walked all day.

 

I read all the small print cos i don't trust them.

 

Also make sure your Home policy covers being away more than 30 days - many don't.

We have insurance with Barclays with our bank account but since they downgraded from 90 days to 31 days?. We have now taken out a policy with motorhome ticket club. found them to be the best price for good cover and up to 90 days as standard.

Try the RYA (Dont have to be a member) at www.bishopskinner.co.uk they give good worldwide travel, especially as you are under 70. We are with Nationwide now (have account with them,) got extension for 90 days. Cover is with UK insurance Look around, I had no problem and both over 70 and some medical conditions (Anno Dominii)

Good Luck

Any of the comparison sites will give you an indicator of who can provide the cover you require and compare their costs, saving having to go through multiple websites /phone calls.

Then you can choose to take the comparison site link or your chosen Companys' own website.

try (our preferred comparison site)
