Who Needs Travel Insurance?
Travel Insurance is for anyone who is leaving the UK. Going on holiday, whether with friends or family or should be fun and relaxing, having Insurance in place before you leave gives you the peace of mind to make the most of your trip.
What Does Travel Insurance Cover?
If you or your family are injured, or lose possessions in the course of your holiday, it can be difficult to get the help you need in a foreign country, especially if there is a language barrier. Our Travel Insurance will help you make the best of a bad situation. Among other things, it covers the cost of emergency medical treatment, replacing your possessions, and will even help you in the event that your holiday is cancelled in the first place.
Here’s a quick summary of what’s covered:
- Emergency Medical Expense – not everywhere has free health care
- Hospital Benefit
- Baggage Cover
- Cancellation or Curtailment of trip
- Missed Departure
- Legal Expenses and Assistance

Important Information for Customers with Pre-existing Medical Conditions
We like to provide cover for as many of our clients as possible. Regrettably, that is not always the case for clients with serious pre-existing conditions (PEMCs) where in some cases cover may not be available, or where offered, there may be exclusions applied.
The Financial Conduct Authority, in conjunction Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) has launched the travel insurance directory on its Money Advice Service website which can be accessed here: https://traveldirectory.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en
The ‘Medical Cover Firm Directory’, which is a publicly available directory only lists firms that provide, or arrange, travel insurance policies that cover more serious medical conditions. The directory will also show you enough information about each firm listed so you can make an informed initial choice about which provider might meet your needs.
Consumer enquires about the directory can be made to the Money Advice Service’s Customer Contact Centre on 0800 138 7777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
