Getting back home insurance!!
Met a guy at a Christmas party last night who almost emmigrated to Oz, and he said that you could get insurance that would pay for return flights if you needed to return to England say for example family emergencies like parents becoming seriously ill.
Anyone heard of this, if so is it worth it, website links etc :)
Excess (the shippers) offer something like that with their package, first year is free for all family to fly (return) to UK and it about £180 to keep it running for more years. It called Kinsure www.kinsure.co.uk

Reason: put web address on
Thanks for that The Dimmocks, looks like a worthwhile policy to have, was a bit sceptical of the web link to start with.....looks a bit dubious
We not looked to much into it at the moment, but when the man from excess mentioned it seemed a good thing to have in place. Let us know if you go any further with it.

We looked at it too - but they have great get out policies like you can't have pre existing medical conditions and it only applies to people under 60 (I think)
Hi we have Kinsure, again no pre-existing medical problems but I am sure the age limit is 75. Best part is that the cover step families illness as well, hope this helps! steph

i have used kinsure for the past two years and thankfully have not had to use them yet but this year the cost has doubled so i am not too happy about this as there doesn't seem to be anyone else who does this insurance so we cant go anywhere else...
ref the get out clauses for us are ok as majority of our family have no pre-existing (only mother-in law) and are all under the age of 75, but like i say i haven't had to use them yet to see if there are any other get out clauses that are interpreted differently and might not bother this year as the cost may double again next year.... totally unsure what to do????
Grab a copy of the Weekly Telegraph ( the overseas , weekly issue of the British Daily Telegraph) from a good newsagent ($4?). There is nearly always at least one advert for that very thing.
