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

Following new restrictions implemented on 5 January 2021, you can only travel internationally or within the UK if you're legally permitted to do so while the UK is under full lockdown restrictions.

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. See latest FCDO advice for further information.

Any insurance policy purchased to cover a trip to a destination where the local authority, or the FCDO, has instructed citizens not to travel, will not be valid.

For more information, please see our coronavirus and travel insurance page.

Until then, stay safe.
