What is worldwide travel insurance?
From the historic temples of Japan to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, there’s so much to see and experience in the world. You can take the kids on the holiday of a lifetime to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, relax surrounded by luxury and romance on a Caribbean island or even go backpacking around East Asia. Seeing the world is a great thrill and, no matter where you visit; your eyes will be opened to new experiences and adventures. Sadly though, even on the holiday of a lifetime, problems can arise. But thankfully, our worldwide travel insurance will help cover you when things don’t go to plan.
Worldwide travel insurance is slightly different to European travel insurance because it takes into account the higher cost of medical treatment outside of Europe. The cost of treatment is particularly high in America, where residents have private medical insurance. This means that, if you suffer an injury or fall ill while on your holiday and you don’t have international travel insurance, you could find yourself tens of thousands of pounds out of pocket. But, by choosing the right travel insurance, you can be protected against these costs, so an accident doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.
On top of this, world travel insurance can also protect you if you need to cancel or curtail your trip, if your flights are delayed, or if your luggage is lost or stolen. To get the best protection, you should take out international travel insurance as soon as you can – ideally as soon as you’ve booked your holiday.
