Overview

Travelling? Wherever you're going, pack travel insurance

Wherever you are travelling to, and for however long you're thinking of going, don't overlook your travel insurance. It might not be the most exciting thing to think about, but it's just as important as your passport and your travel tickets.

Just what the doctor ordered

If you are unlucky enough to have an accident or unexpectedly fall ill on your holiday, you might find treatment extraordinarily expensive. Emergency medical cover can help cover you for your hospital costs. It can cover you for emergency dental treatment too, if you suffer from agonising toothache, or find it too painful to eat while you're away.

Missing wallet or missed departure? We can help

You'll also be very grateful you took out travel insurance if essential items like passports, travel documents or luggage gets lost or stolen. It could even cover you if a broken-down vehicle or public transport delay means you arrive at the airport late and miss your departure.

If you decide on a Premier or Premier Plus policy you will be able to enjoy complimentary airport lounge access if your flight is delayed for two or more hours. *

When you need single trip insurance

As you might have guessed from its name, single trip travel insurance is suitable cover for you if you're only going away once in the near future. Any more than that and you may be better off with annual multi-trip cover.

There's travel insurance and the right travel insurance

You may think you have cover already. Perhaps because your bank or credit card includes it as a perk. But have a quick look at the policy to see if it gives you the cover you need. Watch out if your holiday provider offers to include travel insurance as part of a package too. You could be paying much more than you need to, just for the convenience.

EHIC is good, but not good enough

You may have heard about the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). It will give you some state-provided medical healthcare for less than you'd otherwise pay, if you're travelling in Europe. But travel insurance will normally cover more of the cost for you.

Without adequate cover the costs soon add up

Cover for medical emergencies to bankrupt holiday providers

Use us to protect you on your trip abroad and, as well as cover for emergency medical treatment and lost valuables, you'll also enjoy personal liability and protection for legal costs you might unexpectedly incur while you are away.

You may be one of the growing number of independent travellers who book their flights and accommodation separately instead of choosing a package holiday. Without suitable cover you're not covered if your airline or hotel provider goes bust. Some of our travel insurance policies provides protection for this.

Winter sports, cruise, golf and business cover can all be added for an additional premium.

  • Winter sports cover for skiing, ski run walking, snow boarding and skiing & snow boarding off piste within resort boundaries. Essential protection in case of accidents on the piste and damaged or stolen ski equipment and piste closure.
  • Cruise cover for missed port, cruise interruption and evening dress hire cover. As well as protecting you if you’re ill or require emergency treatment on board, this cover will pay for you to continue your trip if you miss your departure.  There's also cover if a temporary illness or lost passport interrupts your trip or you need to hire evening dress if yours is lost, stolen or damaged.   
  • Golf cover for golf equipment that is lost, stolen or damaged and non-refundable green fees if you are unable to play due to illness or adverse weather conditions make the course unplayable.  There's also hole-in-one cover for your celebrations on the 19th hole.
  • Business cover for accidental loss, theft or damage to business equipment and business cash.  A replacement employee if illness or injury prevents you completing the trip. 

You're covered from the moment you take out your policy

That means if you unexpectedly fall ill, suffer injury or bereavement that prevents you from travelling, you'll be covered.

A choice of cover to match your needs

We can offer you a choice of insurance at five different levels. Super Economy, Economy, Standard, Premier and Premier Plus.  We also offer Classic, Superior and Superior Plus which are designed to allow us to offer cover to more customers with existing medical conditions. Pick the one that suits you.
