Man thats expensive, I payed 50 quid odd, through an insurance agency I found in the back of a travelling magazine.and I also had the free insurance you get from the post office. :)

Try "Insure & Go" and "Go Travel Insurance" - Not sure of Web addresses sorry. They always seem to be pretty cheap for me.

Yeh i searched for ages and its a real bore, went with insure and go in the end, just over 200 pounds but you can get a backpackers deal for about 180 pounds i think, i found them cheaper than nomadds. They seem to offer a lot.

The next question would concern how reliable these insurance companies are, and if they do keep their word. They do sound good, but I've yet to read about anyone's actual experience on here with having some sort of situation making use of that insurance.

If anyone has, do share.
