  1. Every time I go to Japan, I get International Medical Group coverage for Medical. Unlike other travel medical insurances, this doesn't do the whole pay out front and then reimburse you when you return home. This covers you during your trip. They have several levels of coverage with copay and some without copay and depending on all you choose, along with the duration of your travel, is how much you pay. It is very affordable and has never let me down. Covers you from the common cold to emergency surgery if needed. You can get the info of all the clinics and hospitals where you can use the insurance in the area you'll be visiting through their web site. You can print it out ahead of your trip, or look it up during your trip.
  2. Years ago, I never bought travel insurance for my trips to Ireland or London. Being older now and with some medical issues, I bought travel insurance for my last 3 trips to Ireland or the UK. Since I'll be away only 2 weeks, the cost is around $100 US or less. Haven't had any medical problems while on holiday; it was best to be protected.
  3. Hi, a few months ago (almost a year now) I had an accident and it was my fault. I had my vehicle towed and the insurance paid for most of the issues that happened in that accident. I'm planning to get a used cheap car.
    I'm 21 from Blackpool and I can no longer share the same insurance with my family. Where are I ca buy car insurance? Where are the best car insurance deals UK ?
