What should I consider when choosing a policy?

The type of cover you need will vary depending on the type of travelling you’re doing. Two weeks fun in the sun, a skiing holiday, six months’ travelling and a gap year trip all require different types of travel insurance.

You need 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.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

International travel is not currently permitted before 17 May 2021 at the earliest (date subject to further confirmation from the government). For single trip and long-stay trips, you won’t be able to get a travel insurance quote if you’re travelling before this date.

You’re still able to purchase annual multi-trip policies. But if you choose to travel against the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advice and current restrictions, you won’t be covered for your trip.

While the majority of travel insurance providers don’t offer cover if you’re travelling for essential purposes before 17 May 2021, some are now able to offer cover. If you have any queries, you should check the policy wording or contact your chosen provider before you buy.

Different rules may apply in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and it’s important that you follow all the rules that apply to you.

For travel advice on your destination, check the FCDO for the latest information.
