Although travel insurance is probably the last thing on your mind with the excitement of Trips or activities, it can provide you with peace of mind that you and your belongings are covered in the event of an emergency and therefore must be one of the key components of your trips.
VisitUK has made travel insurance a prerequisite of your trip with us. This means that ALL of our tourists must have adequate travel insurance for all elements of their tour before they travel. Although you do not have to take out cover with our insurance partners you will have to provide us with some form of proof that you have taken out adequate travel insurance.
VisitUK approved insurance, covers the following:
Cancellation, curtailment, delayed or missed departure
Sports injuries and emergency medical cover
Lost or stolen baggage, valuables, personal money, passport and travel documents
To get covered now, check that your Group Leader opted for the insurance package we recommended at the time of booking, if they have not already done this then ask them to speak to your Tour Rep and we can add this as an extra. Take a look and download the VisitUK travel insurance policy.
Groups not taking out insurance through us
If your Group Leader has decided not to take out insurance as a group package then you can still take advantage of the policy provided by Endsleigh as an individual tourist. To do this you need to visit the Endsleigh website where you can get a quote for their standard travel insurance policy. Apply for a quote for individual travel insurance on the Endsleigh website.
European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
If you are travelling within the European Economic Area (EEA) we strongly recommend that all members of your touring party have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), formerly known as E111. The EHIC is accepted by many state-run hospitals and doctors within the EEA, but is not a replacement for travel insurance.
