Would you get travel insurance for a holiday to the Isle of Wight?


I have an 80 year old friend who is going on a coach holiday to the Isle of Wight and is convinced that she needs travel insurance but because of her age and medical conditions she is having problems getting travel insurance.


One quote she had was more than the cost of the holiday :eek:
over 73 but not over the hill.

    What does she want travel insurance for?

    She doesn't need health insurance in the UK as it's covered by NHS.
    If she has personal possession cover on household insurance she may not need cover for baggage.

    If she wants cover for cancellation i.e. she might be in hospital or dead before the trip, then that is going to be expensive as she's high risk and if it's close to the cost of the holiday itself then clearly it's not worth it.

    So I would be trying to find out what she wants it for.

    Anything that's high risk is going to be expensive.

    I mean what cover does she want.

    As pointed out cancellation cover isn't worth buying in the circs you describe.

    But she presumably has other aspects of cover she may want?¿
