On their website it does state 55 for the long stay. I thought this was a bit low so I rang them and they stated 65 was the upper age limit.

I was diagnosed with COPD (lifelong smoker - and yes, I know) in January 2015.

I will be returning to Fethiye September 30th for a couple of weeks and contacted my previous travel insurer to let them know of my condition.

Many 'phone calls to numerous insurers later, I was looking at having to pay several hundred pounds to cover me should I need treatment. I was tempted to "wing it" and hope for the best.

I turned to your forum for any information your correspondents may have.

Thanks to the post suggesting Insurewith I contacted them by 'phone.

Although a 25 minute wait to be answered didn't fill me with confidence, once I got through I was dealt with by a super friendly, efficient lady who went through the whole process calmly and patiently.

My cost for the cover I required - pennies over £50 for 15 days.

Of course, I took the cover and hope there is no need to claim.

I have no experience of their settlement efficiency but will let you know if the worst comes to the worst!

 Thanks.

Losing my marbles though.

Actually in Fethiye 16th Sept to Oct 1st - hoping the lungs hold out!

Never met or contacted anyone on the Forum. Travelling with lady friend and would happily have a beer or two with anyone who's there at the time.

Thank you so much Jacqui, we were able to get a brilliant policy with all medical stuff covered for £77 for both of us. Even with Martyn due surgery. Excellent company.
