How does Southdowns compare?

Southdowns travel insurance offers two main types of cover – single trip and annual multi-trip cover. If you go on holiday once or twice a year only, then a single-trip policy might be the best option for you.

Alternatively, if you are a frequent traveller, the annual multi-trip cover could work out cheaper. Not only that, but you won’t have to worry about renewing or taking out a new policy each time you fly abroad.

However, both policies share a wide range of benefits and provide different levels of cover (bronze, silver plus, gold, and platinum). These include missed or delayed departure, trip cancellation, medical cover, personal liability, and compensation for lost, stolen, or damaged baggage.

What’s more, Southdowns’ single trip and annual multi-trip cover both feature cruise cover, which is part of all their policies as standard. You will also benefit from European cover, which extends to Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Iceland, and Turkey.

What extras does Southdowns travel insurance offer?

As well as taking out single trip or annual multi-trip cover, Southdowns allows you to enjoy extra protection by adding a pre-existing medical conditions policy to your travel insurance. If you suffer from illnesses such as asthma, high blood pressure, or diabetes, this type of cover can give you much-needed peace of mind and protect you from any disruptions caused by your condition.

You’ll be required to answer a few eligibility questions. By doing so, Southdowns will be able to accurately screen your medical conditions and identify the best premiums for your needs.
