Travel insurance tips

  • Declare any pre-existing medical conditions that you or your travel party may have (or may have developed during the term of your policy)
  • It’s strongly recommended to get your travel insurance in advance as you might not fully benefit from cancellation cover (In 2012, 16% of people bought travel insurance through Confused.com the day before travelling, meaning that they could have potentially missed out on cover for cancellations).
  • If you’re going on a family holiday, it’s worth noting that family policies are limited for up to 2 adults and 8 children who should be under the age of 18.
