What is travel insurance?

Travelling is all about discovering the unknown, so it’s no surprise that there can be a few hiccups along the way! Travel insurance is designed to better protect you from these unexpected events, from the moment you book your trip to the day you return home. Whether you have an unexpected flight delay or medical emergency, we’re here to help. Let us worry about what could go wrong, so you can start dreaming about what will go right.

How to compare travel insurance

What can travel insurance cover?°

We offer cover for unexpected events, so you can travel with peace of mind. We know each traveller and trip is different - that’s why we offer different policies and add ons so you can choose the type and level of cover you need - which may, or may not, include some of the scenarios below. As with any insurance policy, terms, conditions and exclusions apply so always make sure you read the Policy Document before buying your travel insurance policy to make sure it is right for you.

° Please refer to the individual Policy Documents to see what your chosen policy covers.
