Travel insurance help

Hi everyone

We are one UK citizen and one Italian starting a trip from New Zealand overland back to the UK.

We are finding it very difficult to get travel insurance for the trip because neither of us are currently in our home country.

Has anyone encountered the same issues, and if so would you be able to recommend an insurer who can cover us for a trip which isn't starting from our home countries (and indeed we have already left our home countries)

Many thanks!!

Joss

I have cover from MAPFRE (UK passport, not resident in the UK) - no idea whether they operate in the UK but they do have good cover.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
