Can anyone give me any advice on travel insurance? What’s the best company they have been with? The cheapest etc. Ones not to go with.
I will need to take out insurance for my 8-month trip through Europe next March just want to know what other people’s suggestions are.

Thanks,
:)

I had terrible trouble with Rock Insurance a few years ago when I got trapped in Florida during a hurricane for a week. It was a struggle to get the compensation my nsurance covered and a guy who was on the same package as me got more compensation. They wouldn't answer my letters after a while.

Nowadays I get my insurance through my bank, the Royal Bank of Scotland, and if any of their managers should happen to read this and would like to send me a holiday voucher or luggage set I would be happy to accept.

Well, i hate insurance companies. They usually cost more than they will ever pay for.
The only insurance i ever take out, is medical insurance. And that is only if i am travelling to a country, where medical care is way too expensive, to ever pay for.
