    Hi

    I am trying to get some travel insurance and the cheapest so far - that gives us the cover that we want - is the AA. They are ALOT cheaper than the other quotes we have been given. Does anyone have any experience of using them? Would you recommend them and use them again?

    Thanks
    Ann

    I have took there ins the last 2 years, as it was the best price i could get with med conditions covered.
    had to make a claim this year, phoned them when we got home, and got Forms the next day, have sent them away about 8 days ago, so waiting for payment, which hopefully should be straightforward.

    Hi, we're looking at travel insurance aswell. I just tried the AA and it came up as £492.67!!:scared1: I think I've done something wrong!

    Just realised, I thought they wanted the no of travellers, so I put 5, but I only needed to put 1 family!
    Have to say, Atlas is cheaper, and we have used them before. Also claimed last year as dd was ill,, and they settled no probs, really quickly.

    I used AA last year and £27 for me and my DD, for next year I got a quote for £30 for 3 weeks, I have never had to claim though.

    Thanks for the update rpbert1 that is good to know - glad you got it sorted quickly.

    The price seems good to me as we only want cover for a single trip.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    It cost me £113 for family annual cover, and this was covering the wife with her medical history, so more than happy with the price.
    Make sure you read any reviews on who you take it out with, as cheapest can sometimes add to problems ,especially if someone takes sick , as medical bills can soon mount up.
    When you consider the price of your holiday , £123 for insurance is just a fraction of the cost, just make sure you have adequate cover.

    £123 is more than 10% of our flight & accommodation costs :rotfl:

    I have used Swift Cover many times before, at half the price of the AA their coverage is still excellent.
