I wonder could anyone recommend a company in EU area (preferably UK one), providing health
insurances. To explain myself a bit, we are leaving for a one year cruise
staying in EU area. We have the European Health Insurance
Card, which of course gives us the right to have the same healthcare, as the locals get. That is fine with us.
But what I'm specifically looking, is an insurance
, that would cover the expenses of flying myself or my wife back to our home country, if we end up in a major accident
and are confined to a hospital bed
and unable to use ordinary commercial
flights back to home.
I know there are these kind of health
insurances available even where I live, but unfortunately any journey, that takes over 3 months, is not considered a "holiday" by the insurance
company and thus it increases the payments to huge sums. It's the same with the boat insurance, which I took from a German company, which seems experienced and to be perfectly ok with longer cruises, where my native country insurance companies would have liked to charge 300% more insurance payment.
My wife sister used to travel for a year in Asia
and in Australia
backbagging and she got insurance from a UK company, which was affordable, but unfortunately she has forgotten the name of the company.
