Why You Need Travel Insurance

You wouldn't drive your car without insuring it first, so why would you take the risk of not insuring yourself when you go abroad?

Having travel insurance in place protects you from unexpected costs while you are away. If you were to fall unwell and had to be taken to hospital while you were away, having travel insurance would cover your emergency medical expenses. Travel insurance can also cover you against things like lost luggage, cancellation due to unexpected illness and missing a flight due to adverse weather or strikes.

Some countries may even require you to have travel insurance to enter.

TravelGeo is here to help protect you so you can enjoy your adventure without any worries.

Why You Need Travel Insurance

We understand that it is important you know what cover is in place if Coronavirus or Covid-19 affects your adventure. Our travel insurance policies include cover for coronavirus including cancellation due to falling ill with coronavirus and being unable to travel or being required to self-isolate (subject to a medical certificate or an official test result) as long as you are not travelling against the advice of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) or any other equivalent government body in another country.

Cancellation due to COVID-19

Your policy will cover you subject to the terms and conditions if you need to cancel your trip because:

  • You or a close relative have COVID-19
  • You are required to self-isolate, subject to a positive test result/confirmation from a GP, or notification from the Track & Trace system
  • Someone you were due to travel with or stay with on your trip needs to self-isolate
  • You are made redundant, cannot cover the cost of your holiday, and must cancel the trip
  • You are due to stay with a family member who must self-isolate due to a pandemic illness and you must cancel your trip as a result of no longer having anywhere to stay
  • Accommodation provider closes due to outbreak of COVID-19 Coronavirus (or other Pandemic illness)
  • Your airline or travel provider ceases to trade without being able to meet their obligations regarding travel arrangements – If you are unable to claim through ABTA, ATOL, or any other source then you will be covered.

PLEASE NOTE: Cancellation due to a pandemic illness or for personal quarantine is not covered within the first 48 hours of the policy purchase date.

Your policy will not cover you cancelling your trip if:

  • You don’t want to quarantine or self-isolate when you return to your home area
  • You are unable to travel because the government or another regulatory authority have imposed restrictions, including national lockdown or tiers
  • Any costs for your Package holiday if it was cancelled by your travel provider or you were unable to travel due to a change in FCDO travel advice
  • An airline or other travel provider postpones or cancels travel arrangements but will only offer a rebooking or credit and not a cash refund. You must contact your airline or another travel provider to request a change in refund option if you are unhappy with the option provided.
  • Cancellation due to a pandemic illness or for personal quarantine is not covered within the first 48 hours of the policy purchase date.

Cutting your trip short

Providing you aren’t travelling against the advice of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) or another regulatory authority then you are covered subject to the terms and conditions if you need to cut your trip short because:

  • The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) or other regulatory authority in a country in which you are travelling advises you to evacuate or return to your home area
  • You have been denied boarding at your UK departure point because you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • If you need to come home early because a close relative has COVID-19.

Your policy will not cover:

  • You wishing to return home early to avoid the need to quarantine.

Emergency medical cover for COVID-19

If you develop COVID-19 whilst abroad your policy will cover, you subject to the terms and conditions for:

  • Emergency medical treatment, repatriation, and other expenses
  • Additional transport and accommodation if you are unable to return home as planned.

Your policy will not cover:

  • If you are travelling against Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advice.

New Policies and Renewals

Any New policy or Renewal purchased will not cover cancellation due to:

  • An event which has already begun, or circumstances are already known to you
  • Current or future FCDO or government restrictions on travel due to a pandemic, such as coronavirus, local or national lockdown, or you choose not to travel. Cancellation cover is for the perils listed in the “What is Covered” section and if you cancel for other reasons, you may not be covered. We will only refund costs for which you have not been entitled to a refund from your travel provider.

Scenarios that are Not Covered

Your policy will not cover:

  • You book your trip whilst in lockdown and need to cancel because restrictions still apply when you are due to travel (lockdown, tiers etc.) - Not covered.
  • At the time of booking the trip entry restrictions apply at your destination, and you are unable to travel as the restrictions are still in place - Not covered.

The examples provided above do not form a complete list of covers and or exclusions in relation to COVID-19 Coronavirus, please refer to the Policy Wording for more information.

A travel insurance policy price can vary depending on what type of cover you are looking for and how long you are looking to travel. The price of your travel insurance policy can also vary depending on if you are travelling with a partner or family. Your medical condition or the location you are travelling to can also affect the price of your travel insurance.

We always recommend that you buy your travel insurance policy at the same time as you book your adventure. It is not worth the risk of not being covered if your holiday is disrupted.

Your travel insurance policy will give you the right to make a claim after the event, which means that you will need to pay for any costs upfront in most cases and then make a claim to us. Make sure you keep any documentation you have so you can make the claim, otherwise your claim may be unsuccessful.

Please make sure you read the Terms & Conditions on your policy, so you know exactly what you are getting and what you are covered for. Different policies cover different needs so make sure you check them before your adventure.

You can still purchase travel insurance if you’re going on an adventure in the UK. Our brilliant NHS will cover the cost of your medical treatment as normal, but if you do choose to purchase travel insurance, you can pay to be transferred to a hospital closer to home.

It is still always a good idea to purchase travel insurance for an adventure in the UK as you will have a right to make a claim against the risk of cancellation, losing money, baggage loss, and your mobile phones and other appliances.

Please note cover within your home area is only applicable if you have 2 nights pre-booked accommodation.

No, you do not need travel insurance to go on your adventure.

But that does not mean it is a good idea to go on an adventure without it. No one can predict when a flight gets cancelled or when baggage gets lost. This is where travel insurance can help keep the right to make a claim.

If you don’t have travel insurance and something goes wrong, you could be paying for expensive medical treatment out of your own pocket which would ruin your adventure.

If you need to make a claim, whether it is a non-emergency or emergency, you can contact claims by Calling 0203 475 3630.

It is very important that you make your claim as soon as possible and you have all relevant policy documents ready before getting in touch.

You should take out your travel insurance policy as soon as you have booked your holiday. This way you have a right to make a claim if you cannot go on holiday because you are ill or have been made redundant and can receive your money back.

Customers who have serious pre-existing medical conditions can view a directory of specialist Travel Insurance providers on the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) website here or call 0800 138 7777.
