Stick to the inflexible cheap ones. You've been burnt once, but how many times have they worked OK?

If a flexible tickets costs half as much again, then you can afford one disaster every three trips where you have to change your flight and still break even. It's more likely to be much less frequent than that, so save your money and just bite the bullet the one time in 20 or one in 50 when things don't go to plan.

You'll save in the long run.

Will the insurance pay for mrs matt's ticket as well? I know some policies will depending on your level of cover.

Was there any reason why you didn't get your insurance co. involved while you were in Thailand (if you don't mind me asking??). I have had experience and I know of others as well who have had to change flights both domestic and international for one reason or other. Insurance co handled everything and no cash was required.

axa recommends you pay first but refunds within days of landing.. they can fund up front but takes several days

My experience has been with First Assist, I bought the cover through Halifax Bank, Couldn't fault them TBH. I only made the one call to them and they phoned me back a number of times to rearrange flights and an airport Hotel for a night. I think I ended up getting £70 or so back from them for other exes after they deducted the excess payment.

My mate had to be rushed into hospital in Chiang Rai last year he paid for his medical care but his company sorted the flight home and taxi from Heathrow to Bournemouth. All good apart from the fact that he had to wait 3 months for the cash he laid out at the hospital to be reimbursed. His policy was bought through the Nationwaide Bank.
