28th June – Travel Insurance Awareness Day

What’s The Deal With Travel Insurance Awareness Day?

A surprising number of people are still unaware of the different travel insurance options available to them. Travel Insurance Awareness Day hopes to change that.

June 28th is Travel Insurance Awareness Day. Yes, you did read that right, and it’s more important than you may think. Many people are still unsure of the different types of travel insurance available to them and erroneously think that travel insurance policies are very much a one-size-fits-all affair.

This misconception can lead to people paying more for their travel insurance than they need to. Worse yet, it could end up with them taking out travel insurance for their dream holiday only to find out that they are not actually covered when that dream becomes a nightmare because they failed to understand the policy.

Naturally, we’d hate that to happen to you or one of your loved ones. So, in the spirit of Travel Insurance Awareness Day, we have put together a few of the different policies that you may come across when taking out travel insurance with us and a brief explanation of each. Let’s get started!

European Travel Cover

While this may seem self-explanatory, many people are unaware of where the boundaries lines actually end, especially in Russia. The definition of Europe is an important one if you are travelling further afield than the usual Spanish or French getaways, so make a note that the Ural Mountains are the dividing line between Europe and Asia in this part of the world. If you are in any doubt, then speak to one of our insurance specialists.

Adventure Cover

If you are looking to do something a little out of the ordinary when you are away, then adventure cover is what you need to ensure that you are fully protected whilst abroad. We have a specialist sports and activities cover that gives you peace of mind when taking part in over 90 different sporting activities including jet-skiing and canoeing. For those of you who like to take to the mountains, our specialist winter sports cover is the perfect choice. Terms and conditions apply.

However, if you plan on doing anything out of the ordinary, it is always best to give one of our friendly team a call so that we can ensure that you get the cover you need.

Mature Cover

One extremely common mistake that people make when taking out travel insurance is not taking their age into account. Opting for age specific cover will give you the greatest peace of mind and policies such as our over 70s travel insurance are especially put together for mature travellers.

Travelling With A Medical Condition

If you have a pre-existing medical condition you may not be covered under some standard policies out there. Thankfully, we have you covered with our specialist travel policies that cater especially for both prior illnesses and pre-existing medical conditions including cancer, diabetes, strokes, heart attacks, asthma and even conditions such as epilepsy and depression.

There you have it, just some of our world-class travel insurance options laid out for you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. One of our members of staff will be only too happy to help.
