Why get Travel Insurance?
Although we do not sell travel insurance directly (we leave that to the experts) we do recommend using a well established insurance company and we have found that Cover-more provide a suitable range of insurance options for many of our customers differing needs. They offer both annual multi-trip and single trip policies, but whoever you choose to insure yourself with, we believe there are three key areas to consider.
1. Cancellation cover
We strongly recommend buying your travel insurance as soon as you have booked and made payment toward your holiday as cancellation cover starts from the day you take out your policy. This means, in the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your holiday (for an insurable reason) before you depart, you may be covered for cancellation fees or non-refundable aspects of your holiday. Please check with your policy provider for details.
2. Medical expenses
Provides cover for medical expenses in the event of illness, injury or death during your holiday and where necessary emergency medical assistance and repatriation. If you are planning on partaking in a specific hazardous activity or an extreme sport please check with your insurance provider that you are adequately covered.
3. Personal possessions
Provides cover for your luggage and valuables if they are lost, stolen or damaged during your trip. If you are taking an expensive item such as a laptop, tablet, camera or smartphone then please make sure this item is covered as many policies exclude such items or have limits on how much you can claim for against a single item.
