Living abroad can be expensive if you don’t have healthcare insurance. The average cost of an overnight stay in hospital in France is £500 – that rises to £2500 in the USA. – Susie Colley, WCHC

Private Medical Insurance


Healthcare abroad is expensive.

Without the safety net of the NHS, British expats can be shocked at the true cost of medical care. If you’re living abroad, you need to be protected by insurance.

When things go wrong, you’ll be covered by a Private Medical Insurance policy which takes on the majority of the costs and gives you choice, rapid access to treatment and the best available expertise.

Plus, regardless of your distance from the UK, our team will be here to support you every step of the way. The beauty of buying your policy at home is access to our expertise, experience and reassurance.

Here’s how we will help you when you need it most:

  • 24 hour “Crisis Care” for concerns, questions or fears
  • Advice based on 25 years of nursing and pharmaceutical experience
  • Just being “on your side” to make everything happen

Whatever your circumstance, we’ll provide you with a range of quotes to suit your budget, completely free of charge – and there is never any obligation to buy.

Give us a try, today.
