Our friendly customer service team get asked lots of question about travel insurance when people phone in. So we have compiled a list of Top Tips that you should consider before purchasing your travel insurance to help you out:

  1. Always purchase the Travel Insurance as soon as you book your trip to ensure you are covered for cancellation straight away. You run the risk of having a claim declined if you or a family member falls ill prior to taking out the Insurance.
  2. Read the important conditions relating to health. Most policies will require a medical declaration if you have any pre-existing conditions or taking medications.
  3. Check the summary of benefits to ensure you have sufficient cover. Be aware of reduced limits on Medical, Cancellation and Baggage cover on cheaper policies. Always make sure and check the Excesses on the policy.
  4. Check all additional covers because things like Winter sports, Excess Waiver and Travel Disruption usually incur an additional fee as they are extras on your policy.
