Why is travel insurance so important?

An important question and we're glad you asked! There's always the last minute decision before a holiday, whether it's worth getting travel insurance. You may not be savvy and end up buying the wrong cover, the prices might be too steep or maybe you think it's just not needed for someone your age. It's no secret that young people are more likely to take risks, so it might be a good idea to have a financial safety net should anything go wrong. Grab a great value travel insurance policy for travellers aged 18-24 and make the most of your holiday.

Choosing your insurance provider

Choose a provider who doesn't compromise your cover for a lower premium. We provide generous financial protection with the best price to match, every time you book. Find a flexible policy so it suits how you like to travel. There's a single trip policy or an annual travel insurance option for the more frequent traveller.

All of our cover levels include:

In case of medical emergencies:
Trips, falls, scrapes and bumps, no matter how severe, can happen. Young people are more prone to accident due to less worry about risk, which means being covered for medical issues is probably the most important factor in your insurance policy. Most countries do not offer free health care, so you could be faced with a large medical bill if you fall ill or get injured when traveling abroad.

Lost or stolen valuables:
Keeping in contact with family and friends when traveling is very important. It's always good to have a mobile phone on you should you find yourself in a predicament. Things like your passport, travel money and mobile would usually be on you at all times, so it's important to keep them safe from loss or theft.

Emergencies can happen. Should you fall ill and feel like you're no longer able to carry out your trip, a cancellation policy can recover costs that have already been paid. The already unfortunate act of having to cancel a trip can be hard enough, so don't lose out on the money as well.
