Big Blue Cover travel insurance policy details

Big Blue Cover offers 2 main types of travel insurance:

Single trip travel insurance - if you’re looking to go abroad for 2 days to 12 months then this type of cover is what you're after. You can customise single trip travel insurance to suit your destination, and it covers multiple types of activities.

Annual travel insurance - this is the best option if you're planning on taking more than one holiday in a year. This policy also covers you for unlimited overseas journeys of up to 31 days at a time.

Big Blue Cover offers 3 levels of travel insurance:

  • Economy
  • Standard
  • Premier

All feature the same key policy elements, although the payment limits differ:

  • Emergency medical expenses and return travel
  • Personal possessions and baggage
  • Cancellation cover
  • Travel delay or abandonment
  • Missed departure
  • Loss of passport

Emergency medical expenses means you’re covered if you suffer an injury or illness while on holiday. Big Blue Cover ensures your medical and hospital bills are paid to a total of £10,000. You're also covered for repatriation back to the UK if it's deemed medically necessary.

Personal possessions and baggage covers your luggage against loss, theft and damage. You’re covered for up to £1,000, £1,500 or £2,500 depending on which level of protection you've chosen.

Cancellation cover provides cover if you or someone you're travelling with can't go on your trip. It covers cancellations for illness, redundancy and home emergencies such as floods, fire or burglary.

Travel delay or abandonment means you have access to the airport’s VIP lounge if your scheduled flight is delayed for more than 2 hours. If a VIP lounge isn’t available, you'll be reimbursed up to the benefit level of your policy. If you're still delayed after 24 hours, you'll be able to claim holiday cancellation costs under abandonment cover.

Missed departures covers you if you miss your outbound flight from the UK. If your car breaks down or if you're delayed on public transport, you're covered for an additional flight to your destination.

Loss of passport cover means if your passport is lost or stolen, the cost of getting replacement emergency documents is covered. This could mean travelling to the nearest British embassy or consulate, but you're covered for the whole journey. Similar travel costs to collect replacement green cards and driving licences are also covered.

Big Blue Cover travel insurance optional extras

Big Blue Cover offers optional extras that you can add to your main policy including:

Winter sports insurance protects you and your family as well as your belongings. Optional add-ons include cover for hired ski equipment, piste closure and loss or damage caused by avalanche or landslide.

Cruise insurance covers up to £1,000 for missed port departure and £500 if you’re unable to use a paid-for excursion. Additionally, if sickness or injury causes you to be confined to your cabin, you can claim £100 per 24-hour stint, up to a maximum of £1,000.

Car hire excess insurance covers the excess charge when hiring a car on holiday. These excess costs can be quite expensive and a standard insurance policy may not cover certain parts of the car. If you're involved in an accident, you'll normally have to pay this excess. Car hire excess insurance covers up to £7,500 on a single trip accident or the same amount over a series of events.
