General Cover

If you are buying a single trip policy, your cancellation cover begins instantly. If you are buying an annual policy, you can choose when your cover begins (up to 180 days in the future). If you have already booked a holiday, and have no other travel insurance arrangements in place, you should ensure your policy starts immediately, so you are covered for cancellation.

It is not possible for us to list everything you will not be covered for, and we strongly advise you to read the full Policy Wording. Under each section of cover you will find a list of exclusions, and a further list of General Exclusions in the Policy Wording. These sections must not be read in isolation, but within the context of the full policy wording. If you have any doubts about what is not covered, please contact us.

The maximum amount we will pay for any one item, pair or set of items is €250. Please refer to the definition of pair or set of items of your policy document for more information.
