We are pleased to announce that we now offer Covid-19 cover within our travel insurance policies available on Gold & Platinum policies ( non medical and medical), as well as our Gold cruise and cruise medical.

 

Why do I need travel insurance for my holiday?

While no one wants to think things may go wrong on holiday, it is worth having a safety net in place should something happen that could potentially leave you out of pocket. That's why it's important to have the best travel insurance for your own specific needs. Our policies now include Covid protection (included Gold and Platinum policies (non medical & medical, as well as our Gold cruise & cruise medical not included on Bronze & Silver Policies.  With recent events we think it’s very important for customers to purchase their travel insurance as soon as they book their holiday.
