What is overseas travel insurance?

When we imagine our dream holiday, everything always goes smoothly. But if something unplanned does happen while you’re away, overseas travel insurance could help to lower any unforeseen costs. Whether you’re off for a weekend in Barcelona or a month-long adventure around India, our free online comparison tool makes it easy to find and compare insurance policies.

What does overseas travel insurance cover?

  • You could be covered for medical and repatriation costs abroad, but make sure that you’re honest when filling in your medical information beforehand
  • Having baggage cover means that your camera, tablet and other personal possessions could be insured if they are stolen, lost or accidently damaged whilst overseas
  • Cancellations cover means you could be covered if you need to cancel your trip due to illness, redundancy or family bereavement

If you have a burning question about travel insurance, take a look at our travel FAQ section.

Types of cover:

  • Single-trip may be an ideal cover if you go abroad once a year; it's proven to be the most popular travel policy taken out through Confused.com*
  • If you're a frequent traveller, an annual or multi-trip policy might be just up your street. It could mean a lot less hassle as it could cover you for an entire year's worth of jet-setting.
*Our research found that 84% of all travel insurance policies taken out through Confused.com in 2011 and 2012 were for single-trip cover
