Re: Do we need insurance for a few days or 6 months?

Thank you all for your replies. I've have found an insurer (Columbus) at a reasonable price covering both our 'pre-existing' conditions for just under 180 days for £318 which I feel is really reasonable.

Get some decent travel cover.

Alexander, thanks for that post, it sums it up well. I'm forever pleading with my contacts to follow these simple rules.

This could and can help stop spam . (1) When you forward an e-mail, DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top). It only takes a second. You MUST click the 'forward' button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the body and headers ...
