Where's the best place to get it from? I've booked my holiday without it because I know they charge you huge amounts extra whereas you can get it for the normal price elsewhere. Anyone know where?

Also sorry to hear that Evil Muffin

OHHHHHHH it just cover's Europe - that explains it then! Mine's worldwide hence the name "worldwide travel insurance" because I travel around a lot so I need worldwide as I dont only travel in Europe - in fact I never travel in Europe! lol phew i don't feel so cheated now

travel insurance ****ing sucks wats the point in traveling anyway

lol hmmm well - I love to travel. I love to learn about other cultures and experience different walks of life in different surroundings. I've done work in London, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, India and Africa in the summer. And I feel that I have become such a well-rounded person who is aware of different ways of life. I want to travel to a lot more places and I think my life is going to revolve around travelling. BUt it's ok because my fiance loves to travel to...But...That's just me...

i'm on the same insurance policy as the rest of my family. Got it through marks and spencers- was under £200 per annum. Could be a good way of getting relatively cheap travel insurance? Travelling without insurance is stupidity- when I was backpacking last summer some guys had their bags nicked and didn't have insurance, this cost them a fair whack.
