Default Annual Travel Insurance

We live permanently in Spain and we need to take out a worldwide travel insurance policy. I have checked on UK based websites and they seem to say that you must be a UK resident to take out there cover.
Can anyone recommend a company in Spain that offers comparable cover at a similar cost to those in the UK. I did get a quote from a company advertising in the RTN but it was double the UK price and didn't give anywhere near the same cover.
Thanks

Just done a quote for annual cover in Europe 170 euros. Seems a lot to me.

You could try these two companies. They specialise in expat travel policies.

Worldwide is more expensive and is around£170+ for annual for a couple.

I got a quote from Ibex of around £80 for annual travel insurance in Europe for the pair of us.

Thanks for the information, I will check out the links and let you know how I get on.
Just as an example, I got a quote from the broker who does our house and car insurance. The total cost for 2 adults was, wait for it, €906. I wouldnt mind but the cover was rubbish, €1800 Med. €600 Cancel, €600 Bag.

Yes it was a Spanish insurance company but I didnt bother to make a note of the company name as it was just to expensive to even consider.
