Insurance
« on: March 06, 2011, 04:15:50 PM »
Does anyone know where us oldies can get reasonably priced Travel Insurance?    The policies I have been offered so far seem to exclude absolutely everything and I have taken to asking them to explain exactly what I AM covered for.  This is met with a stoney silence.

Why do Insurers word their policies in such a way that it is difficult for the average person to even begin to understand the cover?

Maybe is time for Polices to be written in plain English (or Welsh).    $uk   $wales   ¢¢##   )*)&

Ours is covered as a paid for add on as part of our Bank Account but these might be worth a look.

My age is not covered by Banks.   The others looking for over £300 for an annual policy!    There is one cheap one available but cover is rather poor,  Reckon I'll have to go for that and use my savings if I need to be shipped home!!

Thanks anyway.

I wont be doing anything for a few days if anyone else has any ideas.

Re: Insurance............Flood insurance help
« Reply #4 on: February 27, 2020, 11:00:44 AM »
I noticed a link at the end of this article, for households in flood-risk areas to be made more aware of the affordable insurance scheme "Flood Re." reading recent storm damage stories the number of people saying they were not insured was quite a shock, I was not sure if it was by choice or cost, so this might help.

Flood Re is a joint initiative between the Government and insurers. Its aim is to make the flood cover part of household insurance policies more affordable.  search Flood Re or link to https://www.floodre.co.uk/

Main article
Flooded households can claim up to £1,000 emergency Welsh Government funding.
