Quotes from the top travel insurance providers
A few things you’d like to clear up first? Maybe you’re not sure why it’s worth comparing your travel insurance, how long it will take or what cover you need?
Well, you’re in luck. We’ve provided answers to the questions we all frequently think about when finding travel insurance, but rarely ask.
This should not be constructed as advice and is guidance only.
What type of travel insurance is right for me?
Picking the right travel insurance policy depends on how often you are travelling, how long you’ll be away for and will also be dependent on what you have planned to do when holidaying abroad. The most common types of insurance include:
Single Trip – This policy will only cover you for, as the name suggests, for a single trip. It can be used to cover an individual, a couple or a family and will need to be purchased before each trip you take. However, single trip insurance can sometimes be more expensive if you go abroad quite frequently. So, factor in how many times you intend on going away before you commit to single trip insurance.
Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance – Purchasing annual multi trip travel insurance can often work out cheaper if you plan to travel 2 or more times per year
The total number of trips you will be covered for will depend on the policy’s terms and conditions, but many insurers impose no limit on an annual policy.
The policy will usually last for a period of 12 months, but there may be a limit on how long you can spend abroad in one go; this is usually a maximum of 90 days.
Worldwide Travel Insurance – It is possible to get travel cover just for Europe if you wish, and this can be cheaper than a worldwide travel insurance policy. But if you are going further afield, such as America or Australia and New Zealand, you will need to get worldwide cover.
The difference in the two policy types stems from how expensive it is to get medical treatment in both the USA and Australasia, as there are some agreements in place within the European Union that keep costs down for travellers if they need medical treatment.
Worldwide cover may also suitable for a gap year or backpacking trip if it is taken as an annual policy.
Winter Sports – If you want to go skiing, snowboarding, sledging or anything else that involves the white stuff, you need to get specialist winter sports cover.
Normal insurance will not usually allow you to claim if you have an accident when you are taking part in winter sports, as it is common for insurers to add an exclusion for this. This is because there is a greater chance that you will be injured and need to make a claim. Having a helicopter medivac you from the side of a mountain is not cheap, so you will have to pay a higher premium to cover this eventuality.
It’s also likely that you have a lot of expensive equipment that will need to be covered when you take part in winter sports, and this policy type usually makes provision to cover this in the unlikely case that it lost or stolen.
Backpackers Insurance – Backpackers and students on a gap year trip will usually be abroad for a long period of time, usually between six and 18 months, and they may well be working as they move from one country to the next to finance their travel. Because of this, traditional travel insurance will not usually suffice for backpackers.
Insurers will consider your age, the time you are likely to be away and your travel plans, to provide a plan that is tailored to your particular needs. It’s important to make sure everything you need is covered within the policy before you leave, as you could easily invalidate your cover by travelling to a destination that is listed as an exclusion.
Another bonus with backpackers insurance is that cover is often included for a variety of activities that a standard policy would not otherwise cover; do check the small print to confirm this.
Family Travel Insurance – A family travel insurance policy could work out cheaper if you are travelling with your partner and children as it takes the hassle and expense out of having to buy a separate policy for each of those travelling.
Family cover sometimes offers increased cover in certain areas and some insurers also offer free cover for the under 18’s in the party, so it is definitely worth looking out for this.
Group Travel Insurance – Likewise, if you are travelling in a party with your friends, such as on a stag or hen weekend, rather than opting for separate cover, it may be cheaper to opt for a group travel policy.
This will cover several of you to travel under one policy as long as you are travelling from the same country of origin and may also include extra cover for typical activities that you might take part in when travelling with a group.
Before you begin comparing travel insurance
Our forms are quick and easy to fill out, but do require some basic info about your travel plans. To make things simple, make sure you have any holiday documents to hand when looking to compare travel insruance deals.
Remember to keep the dates of any planned trips in mind, and make a list of the valuables you might take in your luggage if you can.
What should I consider when choosing a policy?
The type of cover you’ll need will depend on the type of travelling you’re doing. A couple of weeks away in the sun, a skiing holiday or six months travelling will all require different types of insurance.
Make sure you 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.
You should also be able to add extras to your policy for anything that isn’t included.
