Default UK Travel Insurance For 96 Year Old?

My grandmother will be meeting us in Jamaica for a holiday, but the cheapest insurance she's found is £300 with the post office....Anyone know any other, cheaper providers??

bless her for travelling at her age. my lovely uk neighbour came out here last spring, she's a young 84 and i phoned around and as you know it's not too easy to get an insurance company to cover our elderly folks. i used 'age concern' i think it was or else 'saga' and it was much less than £300 but it depends on the number days out the country and the med history of the passenger. hope she has a great time

I'm imagining a 96yo in a bikini layed out on a lounge chair with a red stripe in one hand and a funny cig in the other...

At 96 it is going to be the pre exisiting issues rather than the premium.

well that was my 84yrs old last yr on the beach minus the ciggie but plus a cowboy hat ...although no bikini, just a one piece. she is still a very attractive lady, and has long thick silver hair which is a beautiful shade of grey. she always has her hair done different ways although back off her face and tied up on top.... she's a great laugh. we love to drink champers together and she is a very, very young 84 yr old as seems is the OP's gran

she tell me great stories of the yanks she encountered during the war yrs, lol anything for a pair of nylons it seems i love her, she's a great friend
