Travel is still far from being on everyone’s to-do list, but we want to share some advice on how to get a good value offer on your insurance when you travel far.

Let’s dream a little!

  1. Do not buy your insurance from your tour agency. It’ll cost you more.
  2. Make sure you know the cover you need. Recommended travel policies should cover medical expenses of at least £2m (Europe) or £5m (worldwide); at least £3,000 for cancellation; and at least £1,500 for baggage and belongings cover.
  3. Check what is already covered by your home insurance policy or bank. Sometimes you already possess a home insurance for personal possessions when away from home (without being aware of it). Checking this may save you some money!
  4. If you are an often traveller ~ choose an annual cover.
  5. Check the region. Going to Egypt and France doesn’t mean you have to buy a “worldwide” plan. Egypt may be included in “Europe” category! Just do some careful research here in order to save some more.
