Help .... Travel insurance needed.

We are off on a cruise in January central America (ish) and the only cover we seem to be able to get living here in Turkey is max 30,000 euros cover, and payment for any treatment is paid by us, and claimed back later. We are looking at better cover and only want to pay the excess, and the insurance company pay any medical expenses direct. Any ideas anybody please ? xx

Re: Help .... Travel insurance needed.

There is International coverage from the UK , for expats, which excludes your country of residence. i took it out in 2016 and cost me about 110 a year, multiple trip, each up to 42 days. i will post more details tomorrow, after checking.

Re: Help .... Travel insurance needed.

I think you need to do a specific search on the Internet for quotes because I do recall ( yes not so good now!) that some companies would only insure you if you were actually in the UK when you took the policy out.
At one stage I remember when I didn't know when I would be back and simply said I would extend the policy and that is when they said I couldn't do it out if the UK.
Hope my reply makes sense.

Re: Help .... Travel insurance needed.

We found it difficult helping our friends who live in Greece (EU) obtain cruise cover, cruise cover itself attracts a premium if you want a decent policy, The Caribbean also boosts the cost as does the USA .
30,000 Euros might not even be enough to get you home if the worst happened

Re: Help .... Travel insurance needed.

I never had cruise cover, but in 2015 when I was doing a fair bit of travelling as a consultant I took out a policy with these chaps:- www.expatriatehealthcare.com. the policy that I had allowed me to declare my home as Turkey and covered me for multiple trips as long as they started from Turkey. Good luck.

This is what we said Martin, plus we would have to pay up front for any expenses, which is fine up to a certain point.
And, thanks Ibrahim, we will check that company out, I appreciate that. xx

Re: Help .... Travel insurance needed.

Does the tour operator offer anything suitable?

Re: Help .... Travel insurance needed.

I haven't checked but as it's Tui it is unlikely, but I will check, thanks for the suggestion, just made the assumpton they wouldn't cover expats... oh, just remembered, we bought already, but worth knowing for future reference. xx
