Wherever you want to visit, our travel insurance can help protect you

Do you fancy trekking across a remote rainforest in Asia? Or is having a wild time in New York more your style? Want to fly over the Niagara falls in a helicopter? Perhaps you want to take in the sights of Athens or Rome?

While you might be excited about planning your trip abroad, please don't overlook the importance of travel insurance.

Our worldwide travel insurance can protect you in over 150 countries

Whether you take out Single Trip, Annual Multi-Trip or Backpacker Travel Insurance, we can cover you almost anywhere on the globe you happen to be. If you need to confirm that we are providing cover for where you are travelling, call our helpline on 0330 123 3690. You may also want to check with the latest travel updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Our worldwide cover means you can relax while you're away

That's because, if you're unlucky enough to be involved in an accident or become unexpectedly ill on holiday and need emergency medical treatment, we'll be able to help pick up the bill. We'll even be able to monitor your situation to make sure you receive appropriate treatment. 

Our cover even includes repatriation

That's reassuring to know if you're in the USA or Canada. Emergency medical treatment there can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. If necessary, we can even help return you home.

Don't put a dampener on your holiday

A European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) may not be enough

You might have heard that if you are travelling in Europe, a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) can provide you with some state-provided medical healthcare for less. But our travel insurance should still cover more of the cost for you.

Our worldwide travel insurance protects you in other ways too

If your luggage gets damaged, mislaid or stolen we'll pay towards its replacement. That goes for your mobile phone too. We can help out if you have essential documents like passports or travel tickets lost or stolen by paying towards their replacement.

We provide assistance if you miss your departure too. So, for example, if your car breaks down or a pile up on the motorway delays you, or your train doesn't run on time, we may be able to compensate you.

Sort out your travel insurance when you sort out your holiday

Don't leave your holiday insurance to the last minute, have it in place the moment your holiday is booked. That way, you'll be covered for events that might prevent you from travelling such as unexpected illness, injury or even bereavement before you go. 

If your holiday is cancelled, we can help

Some insurance only covers you from the start of your holiday. Our single trip policy protects you from the moment you take out the policy. And our annual multi-trip policy is in place for a whole year, so you can be reassured knowing your holiday is protected from the policy date start.
