Do I Need Travel Insurance?

Why you need travel insurance

Before you take a trip, you might ask yourself whether you need to purchase travel insurance. Of course, in a perfect world, nobody would need travel insurance (or any kind of insurance). Your trip would be smooth and easy from start to finish. In the real world, however, travel is often fraught with unpleasant surprises—from minor inconveniences like lost luggage and missed connections to major crises like medical emergencies or natural disasters. Fortunately, even though some mishaps are unavoidable, you can protect yourself and your investment when you buy travel insurance.

5 reasons to buy a policy before you travel:

  • It protects your travel investment: If something beyond your control happens and you can’t take your trip, a travel insurance policy like one from Cover-More will reimburse you for many of your non-refundable costs. And if your trip is interrupted or you suffer an inconvenience like lost luggage or a stolen wallet, travel insurance can help cover your losses.
  • Travel insurance covers you anywhere when travelling overseas: A travel insurance policy, like one you’d get from Cover-More, provides cover for overseas medical and dental cover. In addition to covering expenses for minor accidents and illnesses, travel insurance will cover big-ticket expenses, such as medical evacuations. These type of claims can easily run into tens of thousands of pounds—money that would have to come out of your own pocket if you didn’t have travel insurance.
  • You’ll have access to top-quality care wherever you go: Quality travel and medical insurance makes financial sense, but it can also literally be life-saving. If you have an accident or fall seriously ill while overseas, your travel insurance provider will be able to help manage your care. If you have a policy from Cover-More, we will not only help cover your medical expenses, but we will also ensure that you have top-quality medical treatment and case management, and we’ll see that you’re transported home safely.
  • You’ll enjoy around the clock emergency assistance: If you purchase a policy from Cover-More Travel Insurance, you’ll have access to our 24-hour emergency assistance service. No matter where or when you need help, you have a direct line to a travel assistance expert who is waiting to help you.
  • Travel insurance can fit any budget: Understandably, everyone wants to stick to a reasonable travel budget, you can find a policy to fit even the most modest travel budget. If you don’t want to buy a comprehensive travel insurance policy, you can find more affordable cover, such as Cover-More’s Economy plan. Considering the amount of protection you’ll get for just a small outlay, the question you should be asking yourself isn’t “Can I afford travel insurance?” but rather “Can I afford to travel without it?”
