Big Blue Cover policy details
Big Blue Cover offers two main type of travel insurance:
Single trip travel insurance is suitable if you’re looking to go abroad for 2 days to 12 months. Single trip travel insurance can be tailored to fit with your destination, be it a city break, skiing holiday or an extended, luxury vacation.
Annual travel insurance could be the best option if you’re planning on taking more than one trip abroad in a single year. This policy covers you for unlimited overseas journeys of up to 32 days at any one time.
If you’re looking to buy a Big Blue Cover travel policy you can choose from economy, standard or premier insurance. All feature the same key policy elements, although the payment limits differ:
- Emergency medical expenses and return travel
- Personal possessions and baggage
- Missed departure
- Travel delay or abandonment
- Cancellation and curtailment
Emergency medical expenses and return travel means you’re covered if you suffer an injury or illness while on your holiday. Big Blue Cover will ensure your medical and hospital bills are paid to a total of £10,000.
Personal possessions and baggage are covered if they’re lost or stolen. You’ll be covered for up to £1,000, £1,500 or £2,500 depending on which level of protection you have.
Missed departures are covered should you miss your outbound flight from the UK because of a delay in public transport services or your car breaks down. The policy will cover the cost of a replacement flight up to a certain limit.
Travel delay or abandonment means Big Blue Cover will give you 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 can claim up to £10, £20 or £50 per 12 hours of delay up to £200, £250 or £300 depending on your level of cover.
Cancellation and curtailment means you can claim if you’re unable to go on your trip because you or one of your party falls ill, including if they contract coronavirus. Cancellation and curtailment cover will also pay out if you can’t go on your holiday due to an unforeseen event, such as a home emergency, such as a fire or burglary, or because you’ve been made redundant.
