Specialist travel insurance

Trips abroad can be the experience of a lifetime and one of our biggest expenditures of the year. We understand this and provide specialist travel cover for when things don’t go to plan.

  • Generous limits for key risks such as medical expenses (up to £10m), cancellation and curtailment (up to £10,000) and personal liability (up to £2m)
  • Emergency evacuation costs (up to £10,000) following unforeseen natural catastrophes (e.g. hurricane or flood) or political unrest
  • Disruption of your trip as a consequence of strike action, bad weather and even volcanic ash clouds
  • Losses of up to £5,000 following the insolvency of an independent (i.e. not a package or inclusive holiday) travel or accommodation provider
