I have searched the Hubb several times but can't seem to find the answer or any help with my query so thought I would ask. We are going to be travelling through Europe and Africa for several years in a Unimog and I am trying to find suitable medical cover.
I keep finding that either policies don't fly you home (UK) if reqired or only allow trips of short duration ie 45 days. The annual policies seem to allow a maximum of 18 months and no longer. We are after a policy that covers medical assistance in the country we are in but flys you home if that is needed.
The only company I have found with suitable cover is 'Heathcare International'. These guys seem to cover all we need and are more an ex-pat type of cover, however, when I phoned them they said they cover the person and not the vehicle/sport/occupation so would cover us in a lorry in Africa and I specifically asked about motorbikes as we may well hire some along the way. They cover private hospitals in both country of injury and also in the UK if repatriated which is more than all the other policies I have researched. They are quoting £583 per annum for the 2 of us so it isn't that expensive either.
My question is: has anyone else had any dealings with this company? I can't find them mentioned on the Hubb which I find strange as they would cover anyone including bikers and this is a fairly rare thing!
Any answers would be very welcome as I need to set up insurance within the next month!
