    I'm sure others might know better...but I have a feeling that you can access quotes through Age Uk? We have just started taking Saga holidays as my husbands age and illness make it a nightmare to get reasonable quotes and insurance is included with their holidays.

    Hi Amethyst 59, Thankyou for info,I have this morning been looking at quotes with compare. The cheapest is £417. Omg that's ridiculous. Saga is the first on the list at that price going up to £1000. He has quite a few medical conditions other than dementia. There must be cheaper. Will look at Age U.K. Thanks again .have good weekend,....

    I used Staysure or Flexicover. As with all insurance companies you have to fill in a separate medical declaration and pay for that. The questions are quite basic and the same ones are used for all of the companies.

    This is Staysure's page on the topic but a lot of companies will offer the same -

    I also used Staysure and found it very good on price etc. Didn't have to call on it so dont know if it or any of them live up to expectations.

    I did a "go compare" search, added in the medical details for mum & picked the one I thought was best. I had to phone before leaving as I'd missed something, the lady told me it was mums age more than anything that increased the policy price, Alz made no difference in price, but, I did complete to say I would be with her all the time

    I did have to call on one of my policies. I think it was the Flexicover one. I had booked a holiday and Bill went in to hospital a month or so we were due to go. As the holiday approached it became clear that it would be foolish to go ahead. The company was very good. I seem to recall that there was an excess I had to pay but I had the test refunded.

    Thankyou for all the comments. I think it best I wait for the results of the heart scan he had the other day. As one insurance company asked if he had been to hospital lately for any tests & was he waiting for any results which he is.

    I tried Staysure and found them expensive. I then tried Insure and Go and they were more competitive but I suppose it all depends what medical conditions you want covered. It's worth giving them a try though.

    I used staysure last year. Had to pay extra for oh but at least we were covered. Other companies I looked at wouldn't cover dementia and as you all will realise that gives them a loop hole to get out of practically everything!
