Protect yourself with worldwide travel insurance

There’s nothing more exciting than planning an upcoming adventure. Whether you choose to travel internationally or close to home, every trip is bound to be a thrilling and unique experience.

Sometimes, however, holidays don’t always go according to plan.

Cover-More worldwide travel insurance is here to help expect the unexpected on your global travels. From flight delays to lost or stolen luggage, Cover-More worldwide travel insurance enables you to travel with peace of mind.

What is worldwide travel insurance?

Worldwide travel insurance is one of the best ways to ensure your trip will continue to run smoothly should something unexpected happen. By purchasing a worldwide travel insurance plan, you’re protecting yourself from the hassle – and possible financial risk – of medical expenses, delayed or cancelled flights, lost luggage, and more.

In addition to providing cover for emergencies that might occur while abroad, worldwide travel insurance also gives you access to a 24-hour global assistance team and a quick and easy claims process.

Why is worldwide travel insurance important?

Worldwide travel insurance is your trip’s invisible safety net. You don’t want to think about anything unfortunate happening while travelling, but the reality is sometimes things don’t always go according to plan. And in those situations, it’s always better to be prepared. That’s why worldwide travel insurance is so important—by purchasing insurance, you’re protecting yourself from the unexpected.

What benefits does Cover-More’s worldwide travel insurance offer?

Which countries are included in Cover-More’s plan?

Cover-More’s travel insurance plan provides cover for over 230 destinations worldwide. If you can find it on a map, chances are Cover-More has it covered.

To purchase worldwide travel insurance, simply select ‘worldwide’ as your destination when generating a travel insurance quote to insure your travels across the globe. And to help save money and time, why not select an annual multi-trip policy that provides cover for all your trips, up to the maximum duration you choose, for one whole year?

Is a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) enough?

The European Health Insurance Card (or EHIC) is a great first step when it comes to protecting yourself while you travel within Europe. For those who are insured by a social security scheme in any of the EEA countries, the EHIC allows you to receive medical treatment in another member state free of charge or at a reduced price. And while the EHIC is an extremely important security blanket, it’s important to note that its cover lies only in medical protection.

By also choosing to cover yourself with a worldwide travel insurance policy, you will receive protection for so much more than medical protection alone. In addition to emergency medical and dental assistance, worldwide travel insurance also offers repatriation as well as cover for lost or stolen valuables, flight cancellations or delays, lost or delayed baggage, and more.

How much does worldwide travel insurance cost?

There is no set cost for a worldwide travel insurance plan. This is because the price of each plan is determined by the options you select.

The cost is based on your personal information such as your age, any pre-existing medical conditions, your trip’s destination, the length of your journey, and the optional extras you may need. Using this information, Cover-More is able to determine which plan and what price is optimal for your travels.

No matter the ultimate cost, it’s always worth remembering this: while the plan costs may vary, the price will always be a small fee compared to the possible financial losses incurred because of an unforeseen emergency.

3 tips for travelling internationally

Before you travel internationally, it’s important you do your research. Beyond finding the right travel insurance policy for your trip, it’s critical you find out some basic information about your final destination.

#1. Protect your health with vaccinations

Be sure to look up whether or not the country you’re travelling to requires certain vaccinations. When you travel outside of the UK, it’s important to take the necessary precautions to guard yourself against potential diseases present in other countries.

Be sure to check out this comprehensive Travel Vaccination list detailing which countries around the globe require vaccinations upon entry.

#2. Find out if your destination requires an entry visa

Being a UK citizen provides you access to numerous countries without the need of a visa. The British passport is even ranked 6th in terms of travel freedom by the Henley Passport Index, as UK citizens have visa-free access to 183 countries and territories. And while many countries don’t require visas from UK travellers, it’s always smart to double-check before your journey begins.

Most countries that require a visa for UK travellers are located in Africa. Some countries in the Middle East also require a visa, as do Russia and China.

#3. Get extra cover for adventurous activities

If you plan to engage in adventure sports or activities while travelling, it’s a good idea to find a travel insurance policy that covers all parts of your upcoming trip. Cover-More offers optional extras such as Winter Sports, which is the perfect addition if you plan on skiing or snowboarding on your next adventure.

Depending on the plan purchased through Cover-More, you can also expect cover to be provided for most activities and extreme sports.

A few activities available on all Cover-More travel insurance plans include:

  • Cycling
  • Kayaking (excluding sea kayaking)
  • Kite surfing and windsurfing
  • Mountain biking
  • Scuba diving

Also, if you plan to use a moped or motorcycle while travelling abroad, Cover-More provides an optional extra for that. Mopeds, while being a fun way to travel, have high accident rates and having insurance could save you from paying a hefty medical bill if something goes wrong. See the Policy Wording for details.
