Travel insurance is designed to protect you from those unexpected occurrences that could impact you, either before or during your trip. Travel insurance can offer cover for a range of unforeseen events, including insolvency of an airline or accommodation provider, medical expenses, lost luggage, delays or cancellations.
You can also purchase additional cover if you are going on a cruise. This cover offers higher baggage limits and also covers you in the event that you are unable to use your pre-paid shore trips.
Please read more about pre-existing medical conditions below.
Baggage cover is increased by £1,000 if you choose to include cruise cover
We use a single insurer for travel insurance.
It can be useful to arrange your travel insurance at the same time as you book your holiday. This will ensure that cancellation cover is in place as soon as you start paying. Travel insurance will cover cancellation or curtailment of your trip if you are unable to travel because of an unforeseen circumstance, such as a family bereavement, illness or burglary.
Medical expenses cover is also a major part of any holiday insurance policy, no matter where in the world you are travelling.
If you are travelling within the EU and have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), it can be useful to have holiday travel insurance too. The EHIC only covers you for some medical treatment, and will not cover any costs associated with repatriation.
Single trip insurance covers you for one complete trip. Your trip can be any duration, from 1 day to 365 days long, regardless of how many countries you are visiting.
Ideal for regular travellers, providing cover for an unlimited number of trips per year, up to 42 days per trip.
