Whether you are visiting a different part of the country or the other side of the world, travel insurance protects you from the cost of delayed or cancelled transport, broken or stolen possessions, or emergency medical treatments.

Things to be aware of
Our insurance complies with EU regulations
Travel insurance is compulsory if you are travelling to Europe. To be able to enter the EU a traveller must have a Schengen Visa - and their visa application will only be approved if they have travel insurance covering each European state and the whole duration of their planned trip.
Travel insurance vs ticket insurance
When you buy your travel tickets, the company you are buying them from often offers you the chance to add insurance.
However, this isn't insurance for your whole trip - it is just for that part of your journey. For example, the cost of your flights might include insurance that will cover you if something happens to your flight or while you're in the airport. But you will not be insured for anything else that happens on your trip - before you arrive at the airport, or after you leave it.
