Trying to get insurance for my 10 month around the world travels starting this August.

I manage to find some good insurance for myself, English Resident and Passport holder. But i am having trouble finding some insurance for my Danish Partner. All the big companies offering good quotes, like Insure and Go, will only insure people who are UK passport holder, resisdents or been in UK for past 6 out of 12 months. She has a Danish passport, lived and worked in Oz for 12 months recently and currently in the UK as we are going on our travels in 10 days.

The best quote we have had is £191 plus paying excess per person from

Any other help/advice would be great

Many thanks

Have you checked out some of the Danish companies, like Gouda? They might be more expensive, but they are very reliable and solid. I've been insured through Gouda and spoken to a few people who've had claims that were all dealt with quickly.

I´m having the same problem. As i´m Spanish resident, i´m not able to get these
english insurances. Here in Spain the prices are 4 or 5 times higher.
I was just checking these insurance companys:

Seems to be that all EU-residents are able to contract an insurance.
