    Travel insurance after 2 years out of UK? 19th Aug 19 at 10:01 AM
    I am coming to the end of my 2 years policy and my current insurance provider says they cannot offer me any more extensions, I was not planning to come back to the UK for at least another 2 years and wanted insurance for another 2 years, because of my age (55) and pre existing condition general health insurance not any good for me.

    Does any one know is it possible to get another insurance plan for 2 years as I have been out of the UK for 3 years now?, if I have to return back to the UK before taking out another policy is there a minimum time I have to spend back in the UK?

    Thanks

    If you return to the UK you need to stay for at least six months.


    Two travel insurance policies that you can buy when you are anywhere in the world: True Traveller and Nomads. I have no idea how they handle people with pre-existing conditions.

    Are you sure that travel insurance will cover your needs? as being out of the UK for 5 years without returning doesn't sound like a holiday.
    I doubt very much if you will find any travel insurance provider willing to cover you for such an extended stay out of the UK.

    That is what I was thinking and wondering how long I would have to be back in the uk to start another policy I suppose 6 months sounds correct thanks, I have a house so will come back at some point just wanted to stay away longer, it just seems easier to cover my pre-existing in the uk than here in asia.

    It would seem you are using travel ins as health ins, not sure they are the same thing.....
