Travel Insurance

If you're planning a trip, it makes sense to take out travel insurance before you travel. It can take care of unforeseen costs, whether it's an accident or illness abroad, or getting separated from your bags or passport.

We've decided to work with Columbus Direct as we think their rates are very competitive and they provide cover for residents in over 45 countries. Cover is available for single trips of between 2 and 365 days as well as for a selection of annual multi trips for those who travel throughout the year. Taking out an annual multi-trip policy can save you money and give you flexibility, letting you travel as many times as you like for up to 2 months at a time.
