Where is my travel insurance policy valid?

If you’re thinking about getting travel insurance, how do you make sure that you’ll be covered for the country, or countries, you’re visiting?

Use our straightforward guide, then let us know which regions and countries you’re intending to visit, so you can find the right cover for your chosen destination.

How to use our comparison tool

To check whether your destination is covered:

  • click on the region you’re travelling to
  • fill in some further details about the type of cover you require, e.g. single or multiple trip, when you’re going, how long you’re going for, and if you have any pre-existing medical conditions
  • we’ll then provide you with a list of quotes to choose from
  • click on ‘more details’ to see everything you need to know about each policy
  • click on the link ‘check if your destination is covered in this policy’ and type in your destination. It will tell you whether the country you’re travelling to is covered by that policy
Split 1

Make sure you tell us about all the regions and countries you intend to visit during the life of the policy, as different countries may require different levels of cover. This is especially important if you choose:

What else should you watch out for?

  • Will you be taking day trips to other countries during your trip? For example, from Greece to Turkey, or the US to Mexico? If so, check that your policy also covers you for all destinations you’ll be visiting, or any claims you make may be invalid
  • For travel insurance purposes ‘Europe’ refers to the geographical region, not just countries in the EU
