Why is travel insurance important?
Taking out travel insurance can cover you against things that could go wrong when you’re abroad. Having travel insurance is important as it can help you out if you lose your possessions, if your flights and accommodation are delayed or cancelled, or if you become ill or injured while on holiday or a business trip.
What does travel insurance typically cover?
Travel insurance policies usually provide cover for the following:
Cancellation & delay: Including missed departures and curtailment of your trip.
Medical expenses: This will cover any costs incurred if you have to visit a doctor or hospital abroad.
Personal liability: If you cause damage to possessions or injure someone, cover is provided.
Emergency assistance/repatriation: If you need to be brought back to the UK due to injury, your costs will be met.
Baggage & belongings: Protection if your luggage or possessions are lost, stolen or damaged is provided as standard with most policies.

Compare quotes for pre-existing medical conditions
If you have an illness or medical condition for which you’ve had treatment, you need to provide details to your insurer. Heart problems, diabetes, cancer and respiratory illnesses (such as asthma) are among the conditions that need to be declared as they could be excluded from your policy, and not mentioning them could invalidate your cover.
If you have a condition, you may have to pay more for your insurance.

How does our relationship with travel insurance companies affect our service to you?
We never allow travel insurance companies to get in the way of what's best for our customers. So the way we describe or display travel insurance is always based on its benefits to you - such as how much it costs or what is covered - never what's best for a travel insurance company.
