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.

I have just returned from my first ever cruise on board a P&O ship. I spent three nights on the Ventura, Voyage number N730, 3 nights, Southampton to Brugge and back again. Myself and approximately 30 other agents were hosted by P&O, the trip was designed to give us an insight into the brand and what it has to offer.P&O is a brand that I would be selling every single day, so when the opportunity presented itself I jumped at the chance to get onboard. Its so much easier for me ...

Well its getting to that time of year when Christmas is on the forefront of everyone’s mind so I thought I would write about something loosely based on travel but also a bit personal to me instead of my regular cruise blog.You see I have had my pet greyhound Marko for going on 6 years now and he is a massive part of our little family. He is a truly remarkable dog and has done and achieved more than many humans could put their name to so I’m massively proud of him. As much as I lov...
