Travel Insurance

In partnership with Rush Insurance Services Limited

When planning your well-earned holiday, you may also be looking for a travel insurance policy that gives you that little extra reassurance.

Our policies have been tailored to provide you with a choice of cover levels, as well as Covid Cover being included in all policies as standard.

You can choose from two levels of cover(gold or silver) and select either Single Trip insurance for one off trips, or Annual Multi-Trip insurance which will protect all your travel arrangements made for the year ahead, with no restriction on the number of trips you have planned.^^^^^^ Or maybe take advantage of our dedicated Cruise Insurance Policy.

No matter which you choose, all our policies can give you complete peace of mind – with high levels of cover, designed to meet your needs for such things as, cancellation, emergency medical expenses and loss of personal possessions.

You can tailor your policy to suit your travel arrangements and add any extra cover you might need. We have a wide range of sports and activities covered as standard, but we also have the option to upgrade the Activity Pack to cover a wide variety of Winter sports and other more adventurous activities.

Why is travel insurance important?

When it comes to planning your trip, travel insurance is important from moment you book, as it is our cancellation cover that immediately protects you. Although we can never foresee things going wrong, unfortunately, sometimes they do. We offer an extensive range of policies and in these uncertain times, our travel insurance gives you peace of mind from the moment you book your travel arrangements to arriving home.

  • Covid-19 Cover
  • Cancellation and Curtailment (up to £5,000 per person*) - Covid Cover included
  • Medical Expenses and Repatriation (up to £10 Million per person) - Covid Cover included^^^^^^^
  • 24/7 Emergency Medical Assistance
  • Personal possessions (up to £1,500 per person)
  • Sports Cover Options Available
  • Under 19’s Go FREE on Family Policies (Up to 21 Years if they are in Full Time Education and still live at home)

What is included with our Covid-19 Cover?

All of our policies still provide cover for Covid-19 so you can book with confidence, knowing you are protected against the unexpected.

Trip Cancellation - Cover if you or a travelling companion becomes ill or injured or develops a medical condition disabling enough to make you cancel your trip (including being diagnosed with an epidemic or pandemic disease such as COVID-19).

Emergency Medical - Cover if whilst on your trip abroad, you have a sudden, unexpected illness, injury or medical condition that could cause serious harm if it is not treated before your return home (including being diagnosed with an epidemic or pandemic disease such as COVID-19)

Please Remember - There is no cover on any of our policies if you travel against government or other regulatory authority (i.e., FCDO) or medical advice

Cruise Cover

We are thrilled to now offer a dedicated Cruise specific policy.

The policy covers everything our standard policies cover but with the following added cruise specific benefits:

Missed Port of Call  -  Cover if your cruise misses a scheduled port of call in your itinerary

Low/High Water  -  Cover if your river cruise is interupted due to insufficient or excessive water levels

Cabin Confinement  -  Cover if you are taken poorly on your cruise and the Doctor on board advises you not to leave your cabin

Missed Shore Excursions  -  Cover to reimburse any excursions you have pre-paid but cannot go on due to medical reasons or the cruise not stopping at that port

Denied Boarding  -  Cover for meals, communication expenses and local public transportation, if you are denied boarding based on a suspicion that you have a contagious medical condition (including being diagnosed with an epidemic or pandemic disease such as COVID-19).

Health Insurance Information for Travelling to Countries in the EU

As the UK has left the European Union (EU), European Health Insurance Cards (EHICs) are being phased out to be replaced by free Global Health Insurance Cards (GHICs). These will provide the same entitlement as the EHICs within the EU, giving UK citizens the right to access state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in the EU.

If you already have an EHIC, you can continue to use it in the EU until the card expires at which point you can get a new GHIC card.

If you do not have an EHIC, you can apply for a new GHIC here:
