TRAVEL INSURANCE

Travel insurance is insurance that is intended to cover medical expenses, financial default of travel suppliers, and other losses incurred while traveling, either within one's own country, or internationally.

Temporary travel insurance can usually be arranged at the time of the booking of a trip to cover exactly the duration of that trip, or a "multi-trip" policy can cover an unlimited number of trips within a set time frame. Coverage varies, and can be purchased to include higher risk items such as "winter sports".


Common Types of cover provided under Travel Policies:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Hospital Benefit
  • Baggage
  • Delayed Baggage
  • Personal Effects
  • Personal Accident

Usually, the insurers cover pregnancy related expenses, if the travel occurs within the first trimester. After that, insurance coverage varies from insurer to insurer.

There are other policies available on the market, and you should check these out too, however, policies do vary in relation to what is covered and you should check carefully that the product provides the covers you are looking for.
