Looking to compare travel insurance? Here are some tips
If you want to choose between travel insurance options, you should not confine your comparison purely to price. We suggest you look at the following attributes:
Product: The three most crucial components of any travel insurance policy are cancellation, medical and luggage. Look at these three elements, and any benefit caps or exclusions.
Distributor: Look at the company selling the insurance. Their language and tone of voice, their clarity (or otherwise) on what you are buying. Do they say they sell direct? If so, look for "this product is underwritten by.." statements indicating they are not truly direct.
Insurer: look at the insurance company, and any track record with regard to service. Look for credibility and trust in the products that they offer. Do you like their brand and message? Are they an ethical and credible company? Generally they are global mega-corporations, and have rich and storied histories - if you are concerned, research them.
Price: Over all things, balance price. If you feel that it's value for money, go for it. If you have doubts, shop around. You are very safe buying online, because insurance products are required to have a money back guarantee built into them (also known as a cooling off period). Although be wary, some companies may make it easier to get your refund than others.
