Yes, travel insurance is pretty dull. But it’s really, really important. And while most claims are for nothing more than a lost bag or delayed flight, we live in volatile times. Now, more that ever, you need to check your policy’s small print for areas that may not be covered.
We’ve teamed up with leading provider InsureandGo for a policy that goes further. InsureandGo covers the basics (from medical care to repatriation) but it’s just introduced some new add-ons...
In 2011, 24 holiday companies collapsed; in 2010, it was a huge 239. Which just highlights the importance of being insured for such provider failures. InsureandGo’s Supplier Insolvency add-on (included in Gold, Platinum and Black policies; not available in others) gives cover in the event that travel providers, including suppliers of hotels and car hire, become insolvent.
Also, InsureandGo’s Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance (included in all policies) means that you are protected if the scheduled airline you’ve booked on goes under. Perfect peace of mind in these testing times.
If the word 'Eyjafjallajökull' sends shivers down your spine, this is the cover for you. InsureandGo’s Travel Disruption add-on includes any claims directly or indirectly caused by any extraordinary atmospheric, meteorological, seismic or geological phenomenon. That means ash clouds, meteorites, tsunamis, earthquakes and other trip-bothering natural upsets.
InsureandGo’s Travel Disruption policy-extra also covers claims made in the event of civil unrest erupting at your destination. Be it organised protests, riots, arson, looting, border infringements or armed insurrection (except where civil war has been declared), you can rest assured your travels will be covered.
Got a nice bit of photography kit? InsureandGo can offer extra cover for cameras, so you feel safe while out taking those shots. You can add-on insurance for kit worth up to £1,000 (£1,000 per body and £1,000 per lens if bought separately) for a small supplement. For example, to cover a one-year-old £700 camera for 30 days can cost from just £35.
