Below you will see information on travel insurance.
Travel insurance is an essential factor for many people in Britain. Whether you go on regular trips overseas (for business or backpacking) or if you make just the odd trip abroad, you can find insurance to cover you for many of the unfortunate events that can take place.
What are the Types of Travel Insurance?
The main types of Travel Insurance include:
- Annual Multi trip
- Single trip
- Over 65s
- Business, Backpackers
- Winter sport/Adventure Travel
- Baggage/Cancellation cover
- Illness/Accident cover
- ...and more
You can receive cover for events such as a tour operator or airline going bankrupt, leaving you stranded (if you're already abroad) or out of pocket (before the trip even commences). This may sound like an odd scenario yet does occur!
More regular events are lost or stolen baggage, cancelled flights, stolen or lost wallets/passports. These can all be covered meaning you receive compensation and assistance.
An area which the majority of travellers want to secure is illness or accident while abroad. While this can be a distressing event, it can become tricky and even expensive in another country where you may not be familiar with the local rules and language. Adequate travel insurance can mean you are taken care of quickly and the expenses dealt with.
Where Can I get Travel Insurance?
Many travel companies offer travel insurance. Some airlines offer automatic cover for baggage and sport apparatus (such as skis or snowboards) but it is worth looking around to find a good policy. Often the cover you click automatically with your flight tickets is not adequate or is badly priced.
Take your time and have a look at the many travel insurers available on the internet.
