Travel Insurance

If you're planning a trip, we strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance. The last few years have reminded us how important it is - whether it's for flight cancellations, illness (Covid or otherwise), or needing to stay at home to care for an ill or elderly relative. We can recommend Columbus Direct whose annual multi-trip policy (in particular) is comprehensive and competitive, and available to residents in over 45 countries, for trips of up to 2 months at a time. Plus, as an i-escape client, you get a small discount by clicking the links below. Do it as soon as you book your holiday; that way, your initial deposits are protected too.
