Manor Insurance

Recommended by FHLTA member(s); Janet Long, Graham Marsh & Ellie Irwin

Our upper age limit for annual policies is 85 and for single trip cover 110. We offer long stay cover as well, up to 18 months away for under 65year olds dropping down to no more than 4 months away for those aged 75 plus.

Johnnie Walker mentioned us on his BBC Radio 2 programme and we have also been highlighted on BBC2 Working Lunch.

Customers of ours took the time to write to the BBC One Show recently after they did a piece on travelling with medical conditions.”
