Which? magazine recommends at least $2Million worth of medical cover.

I would chose the policy that offered the most medical insurance - also check the details of repatriation and 24hr help lines etc.

The first time we went in 1992, it was recommended that one have 2,000,000 worth. Our policy now has 10,000,000.

Yes go for the one with the most heaven forbid you should have to use it but it is very expensive out there. I had a bad back one time i was there i couldn't walk very far i went for treatment at the walk in centre on i drive and it cost me nearly $200 for half an hour con sult a jab and tablets I don't know what was in the jab but it worked wonders!!!!
