Travel insurance tips

  • Don't base your choice purely on price; make sure that the policy you choose covers all your needs
  • Read the small print of your policy, including exclusions such as extreme sports and incidents arising from the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Declare any pre-existing conditions that you have, otherwise your cover might not be valid if you try to make a claim

If you have a travel related question, then why not take a look at one of our travel insurance guides to help you with your trip.
