Travel Insurance ‘Must Haves'
When finding you the right Travel Insurance, we ensure we source a policy based on your individual requirements.
There are a number of ‘nice-to-haves’ or optional extras available with Travel Insurance, however, there are certain features which we think it should cover so you’re not left out of pocket.
We believe in making sure you have comprehensive insurance for your travels so you can take off in the knowledge that you’re covered, whatever the weather.
Medical and Accident cover
Medical and Accident cover protects you in the event you have an illness or accident on your trip and require emergency medical attention.
It’s wise to ensure your policy also covers Repatriation back to the UK.
To ensure you’re fully covered, make sure you report any pre-existing illnesses prior to obtaining the policy.
In the event you are forced to cancel or cut short your trip due to unforeseeable circumstances, Trip Cancellation covers the cost of any travel or accommodation you have pre-paid for.
If your policy includes Travel Delay, this protects against delays due to traffic, strikes or bad weather. You will be covered for the cost of food and drink at the airport and potentially for holiday abandonment if the delay is over 24 hours.
Lost baggage, documents or cash
Whilst in transit, there is a risk of your luggage getting lost, stolen or damaged – Baggage Loss will cover the cost of replacing this.
Lost Documents/Cash cover will protect you against losing your cash and passport. The policy will specify an agreed maximum amount to pay out for any costs incurred.

The Insurance Centre acquired the insurance broker I used to insure with approximately 15 years ago. Since then the work Claire Banks carries out for us is extremely efficient, she is reliable and does exactly what she says she will.
For that reason I have continued to renew our insurance with The Insurance Centre and I am very thankful for what Claire and the team do.
