Let's all have a laugh / A Farmers life
« Last post by Edward Bear on September 11, 2017 »

 ​                           
A farmer stopped by the local mechanics shop to have his truck fixed.
They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he didn't live far and would just walk home.
On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint.
He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose.
However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem - how to carry his entire purchases home.
While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost.
She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane ?' The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house.
I would walk you there but I can't carry this lot.' The old lady suggested, 'Why don't you put the can of paint in the bucket.
Carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?' 'Why thank you very much,' he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home.
On the way he says 'Let's take my short cut and go down this alley.
We'll be there in no time.' The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, 'I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me.
How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and have your way with me?' The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose.
How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?'
The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens!'

My problems with insurance cover for more than 60 days weren't with medical cover, but with getting cover for leaving my residence in the UK unoccupied for more than 60 days. Too many stupid petty requirements made it impractical, and I was told a return to the uk for a week wouldn't be enough to validate any claim. One useful thing I did learn from insurance brokers is that it is very easy now to check the authenticity of claims, especially where a major claim is concerned. I was told once you have a mobile phone or are on the internet the insurance companies ( and any one else for that matter ) can check exactly where you are and where you've been by your phone and internet usage, when considering any claims. Not directly linked to this particular post re health insurance, but a sobering thought and definitely not worth taking a chance.

Thanks for the observations. I have tried several comparison sites and individual insurance companies but no-one will quote me for 120 days continuous.What would be the repercussions of me taking out two separate 60 day policies and returning to the UK for an overnight stay at the end of the first 60 days? Would
I physically have to return or could I just buy the tickets and not use them? The other alternative would be to buy the two policies and not bother about tickets and just continue my holiday. Any thoughts!

I presume you have tried money saving expert web site? We ended up with LV after trying them for multi quotes, hubby has several existing issues. I think it will probably come down to the length of time away rather than medical issues.
Saga is another possibility or as someone has suggested Aviva, good luck and let us know how it goes.

If you can speak Spanish and don't mind being hospitalised in Santa Cruz in the event of illness then the EHIC is a possibility, ALTHOUGH it will not cover you for repatriation to your home country.

As your insurance has to be taken out in your country of permanent residence, you cannot take one out whilst in Tenerife. Taking two out in U.K. requires a finite time limit - you cannot take it out more than a specified number of days prior to travel.

You can get long stay travel insurance with medical conditions at such places as JustTravel and Staysure, at a premium, and if you search for your specific needs i.e., over 75, long stay, existing medical conditions via Google, you should find several.

Personally, I would never contemplate travelling without taking out private medical cover. I know plenty who have, some have got away with it, others have paid a very heavy price. Good luck

It could be worth giving Aviva a try, my wife has medical conditions and Aviva were very accommodating, I also use them for car insurance over 90 days abroad, if you state your requirements to them, they will provide a quote, only you can decide if it meets your need and price range.
