What should I consider when choosing a policy?
The type of cover you’ll need will vary depending on the type of travelling you’re doing. A couple of weeks in the sun, a skiing holiday, six months travelling or a gap year away will all require different types of insurance.
You’ll want to pick a policy with the right level of cover and inclusions for you. For example, comprehensive policies will typically cover you for the following: loss of baggage, theft, cancellation, medical treatment, public liability and emergency repatriation.
