Hi All

Heading off to Asia, Nz and Oz for a year from Ireland (wahoo, so cant wait!) and was wondering does anyone know of good (but cheap) insurance from Ireland, have been looking around for a bit but havent a clue of whats best or whats covered, so any advice would be much appreciated!

Also if theres anyone else doing the Thailand thing (will be there from 18th August - 15th Sept) drop us a line, Im a 27 yr old Lass whos heading away with 2 other girls.

Slan
Sabrina

Hi Sabrina

This morning I heard an add on a Dublin radio station advertising travel insurance for Irish and UK residents. You will find it at www.ecover.ie

I hope it’s useful. Works out at €199 for me for the year. Alternatively if you are in the VHI it will cost you an extra €20 per year on top of what you are currently paying (per year.) Might also be a good option.
