UK travel insurance/travel insurance in the UK

Travel insurance is insurance that is intended to cover medical expenses, financial default of travel agencies, and other losses incurred while travelling, either within one's own country, or outside of the UK. If a traveller decides to get travel insurance, there are many different services to choose from. Most UK travel insurance suppliers offer several packages suitable for each trip. That is why you have to read the policies carefully in order to determine which one is best suitable for your needs. Here we will give you some basic information about UK travel insurance and about what happens if you experience a flight delay or cancellation.

UK travel insurance: travel insurance in the UK

In most cases, travel insurance will offer medical coverage, which means that the insurance company will cover all medical expenses abroad. Children do not have to pay extra. However: be aware that your insurance may prescribe an average amount that it will refund for certain medical procedures. If the country where the expenses are made charges more for medical care than what it would cost in the UK, you may not be able to get a full refund for these expenses. 

The price of the insurance depends on the duration of the trip. The traveller may choose if he also wants his insurance to cover personal belongings, which will increase the price, or if he only wants to go for basics as cancellation and curtailment coverage and medical emergencies. In addition to that, the passenger can chose if he wants to purchase a single-trip insurance or a continuous, year-round one. The destination of the trip will also affect the price: generally the agency will look at whether you're staying in the EU or travelling farther.

What happens if your flight is delayed or cancelled?

Travel insurance will not claim back compensation from the airline for the time lost when a traveller is affected by delays, cancellations or denied boarding. If the passenger wants to claim money from the airline he needs to follow a certain procedure, starting with submitting a claim. The insurance agency will only assist you in your battle with the airline if you have insurance for legal expenses, which is usually a separate policy. Some travel insurance does cover cancellations: if you miss one day or more as a result of a delay or flight cancellation, you may be able to get a portion of the cost of your holiday back from your insurance.
