Travel Insurance - Tips On How To Find The Best Cover

Aug 11, 2008
Many of us like to travel abroad to pastures new at least once a year, and some of us like to jet off abroad even more often if we can. There are also many people that have to travel abroad as part of their work, and may find themselves heading overseas on a regular basis. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, and whether you travel regularly or occasionally, it is important to remember that having travel insurance in place is of paramount importance for you and those travelling with you.

Travel insurance is available from a wide range of lenders, and there are different levels of cover that are designed to suit different needs and circumstances. You can get some pretty good deals on travel insurance cover, although you should remember that the cost of cover and the benefits of cover can vary from one provider to another. It is therefore vital that you compare cover from a number of providers, and in addition to checking and comparing the price you also read the small print, familiarise yourself with any restrictions or exclusions, and make sure that you are aware of the benefits.

When you are booking or arranging your travel insurance cover you will need to decide which type of policy is best suited to your needs. There are a number of options to select from, and a few of these are outlined below:

Single trip cover: Single trip travel insurance cover is ideal for those that only travel abroad occasionally, such as once a year or less, and this cover can be taken out when arranging your trip, either through the company that is arranging your flight and accommodation or by doing some research and comparing deals from other travel insurance providers. As the name suggest this type of travel insurance covers you for a single return trip.

Multi-trip travel insurance: If you travel abroad on a regular basis, it would be a pain to have to arrange separate cover each time you went, not to mention expensive. With multi-trip travel insurance cover you can enjoy being covered for a number of trips abroad without having to arrange cover separately each time.

Annual travel insurance cover: Annual travel insurance cover will provide protection for the whole year, so no matter how many times you travel over the course of that year you will be covered. Again, this can suit those that travel on a regular basis, and can save time, hassle, and money.

Group travel insurance: If you are travelling abroad as part of a group you can get some good deals on group cover that will protect everyone in the group. This is a far cheaper way of getting this valuable insurance than everyone taking out their own separate policy.

Winter sports cover: Many people like to jet off to a winter wonderland to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and other winter sports. However, this can be a dangerous sport, and therefore you need specialist cover to protect you against the increased risks as well as to protect the expensive gear and equipment that you will be using.
