Buying medical travel insurance for my elder parents

Jump to last reply

We are going to Spain and UK for 10 days. I have looked on insuremytrip. Because my father is >70, it seems like the max medical limit I can buy for him is $100k. [There is one company that offers $250k but the cost is much higher.]

I'm deciding between 2 plans. One is offered by Diplomat Int'l, the other is Liaison Int'l. Both plans are fairly comparable. Both has emergency medical evac up to 300k. One covers pre-existing conditions up to 3 yrs, the other only 1 yr.

My parents are both fairly healthy except for the usual high blood pressure and high cholesterol (all under control). Does either plan seem adequate or should I be looking for something else? Thanks in advance.
