Travel insurance is designed to protect your health, belongings and the cost of your trip

Leaving the purchasing of your travel money until the last minute can leave you out of pocket. The Bureau De Change at airports usually will leave you paying significantly more for your money than buying your cash online. Also pre-paid cards are a great alternative to cash. They often offer competitive exchange rates whilst not incurring any additional costs associated with using debit and credit cards overseas.

Leave contact information and details about your trip with friends and relatives in case of emergency, including your travel insurance details along with the emergency medical assistance company details.

Before travelling always make sure that your passport is valid for six months after the date you plan to return home. Always check if the destinations you are travelling to require a visa, these can take a few weeks to arrange so you will need to do this as early as possible to avoid any possible disruption to your travel plans.

If you intend to drive whilst overseas you can use your licence for driving if you are within the EU. Your licence must be a full valid EU licence (it is always worth checking the details with your insurance provider before travelling). However all countries are different so it's always worth checking age and other restrictions before you go to avoid any disruptions to your plans. An International Driving Permit (IDP) translates your driving licence into several other languages and some countries will insist on this document before allowing you to drive on their soil.

Take care of your belongings while you are on holiday. If you leave your bag unattended, for example, the firm can justifiably turn down a claim for theft. In the event of a theft, loss or a crime, you must alert the police and request a written report of the incident. And we all like to have a drink on holiday, but don't get too carried away. Claims arising directly or indirectly from using alcohol or drugs (unless the drugs have been prescribed by a doctor) are not covered by this policy.

Before you buy a policy and have a medical condition, we ask you to confirm that you are NOT

  • Receiving or on a waiting list for treatment in a hospital or nursing home;
  • Waiting for investigation or referral, or the results of any investigation, medical treatment or surgical procedure, for any condition, whether diagnosed or un-diagnosed;
  • Choosing not to take prescribed medication, or the correct dose of prescribed medicine;
  • Travelling against the advice of a medically qualified doctor;
  • Travelling to obtain medical, dental or cosmetic treatment;
