You can also choose from a selection of optional extras - such as gadget or winter sports cover. That way it's easy to get a policy that fits your plans, without paying for cover that you don't need. Your policy, your way.

Specialists in medical travel insurance

Your medical condition doesn't define who you are. And it's not going to stop you bringing your travel dreams to life. But there are one or two extra things to think about when you are travelling with an illness. That's why it makes sense to insure with a specialist in medical travel cover. Our expertise has helped hundreds of thousands of travel lovers get flexible policies at fair prices. And our policies include thoughtful benefits such as cover for the loss of prescription medication - and access to an English-speaking emergency medical assistance service that's available 24/7.

Complimentary cover for sports and activities
