Can anyone recommend or suggest a good insurance company for cyclists doing long trips?
In August, my wife and I are setting off on a year-long tandem trip across North America, New Zealand, Australia and Europe. We're going to be in Canada for almost a month, the US for nearly four months, New Zealand for six weeks and Australia the same.
Any ideas please?
Cheers, Huw Thomas
PS. If you're curious, it's going to be a 10,000-mile ride in aid of the disaster relief charity ShelterBox. We've got a blog at http://tandem10.wordpress.com
We are from Canada and when we cycled in New Zealand in Feb/March we got our insurance through BCAA. Very good coverage and reasonably priced.
I am from Canada.
The last time I investigated international travel health insurance when I wasn't covered by an employer plan, it made financial sense to get two policies: One for worldwide *except* the USA and a second plan to cover only my time in the USA. I don't remember the provider. It may have been Blue Cross.
