Looking for a budget travel insurance cover?

If you're travelling on a tight budget, costs could add up like there’s no tomorrow and unplanned expenses for things like flight delays or medical bills could really put a downer on your holiday.

With the right travel policy, you could be compensated for holiday mishaps like flight delays or lost baggage, and it could help pay for your medical bills if you're ill or injured abroad.
  • Remember, it's worth considering the level of cover as well as price when looking for a travel policy
  • If you travel more than twice a year, an annual policy could work out to be cheaper than a single trip policy. Annual policies start from just £11.20**
**The cheapest annual policy is £11.20 (based on 1 adult aged 28 travelling in Europe). Prices correct on the 10/12/2014.

What could travel insurance cover?

  • Hospital treatment can be surprisingly expensive abroad, but with travel insurance your medical costs and repatriation could be covered if you get seriously ill or injured while away
  • Your bags, personal possessions and money could also be covered if they're lost or stolen
  • You could also be covered if you're forced to cancel your trip in an emergency or compensated for extra expenses if your flights are delayed
  • Some insurers may offer scheduled airline failure cover meaning that you could be compensated if your airline goes bust
