Diabetes UK are pretty good (www.diabetes.org.uk) , but we have found Free Spirit (Tel: 0845 230 5000) cover medical conditions that other insurance companies do not necessarily cover – my husband suffers from COPD and can not get cover with most companies, Free Spirit covers him, but it is not cheap. However, it is cheaper than not being covered!

Hi Sad that as we get older we get a whacking when it comes to insurance but it reflects the risk and cost?try one of the many search engines that are on the net and SAGA might help and check that he may be covered by his bank or building society card if he uses that to pay for the holiday,We have used a local insurance agent and got a good deal.Hope you get fixed up if P&O will cover him someone else will do it cheaper if you can find them?

Try Age Concern - don't recommend bank/building society cover as that is unlikely to include repatriation.

Hi, AXA offer cruise insurance for people up to the age of 85. I would think that they would be considerably cheaper than P&O. Regards.

If you book a world cruise on Saga they will also include the insurance.

Hi - Just picked up a flyer for Intune (financial services from Help The Aged). try www.intunegroup.co.uk/travel - or call 0800 030 4888 - they say they have no upper age limit and cover many pre-existing conditions. I haven't tried them myself yet so I can't comment on costs. Hope it helps.

'tho I'm not 82, (just 60), I also used to have diffs getting insurance because of health issues, type 1 diabetes, quad coronary bypass, until I found Age Concern. I was being quoted up to £800 for a single trip to Caribbean by various other companies, but Age Concern gave me annual cover for europe and the states for £280. All the best.

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...
