Travel insurance run-around
With an impending long distance trip of over 6 months in duration (UK to Oz) have been trying to get some meaningful quotes for travel insurance. I've made enquiries to heaps of companies and specifically asked if they'd definitely cover me for motorcycle touring.
Most of the normal travel insurers will only cover up to 125 cc, and even then with a limit of up to two weeks. There's some other odd insurance companies that'll go to 250 cc, presumably with the same time limits. But to date have only got a couple to quote me to indemnify me for several months travelling by bike. Best I've come up with is over £500!!! One of the limiters has been time (many won't provide cover for more than 90 days). And my age being over 50 (so can't qualify for a number of back-packer packages)
Anyway to cut to the chase ... have only come up with a couple of options so far (including those recommended here on Horizons ....).
So if there's anyone out there, who's got any further recommendations I'd appreciate hearing about em.
Regards and thanks Len
