These are just some of the potential problems covered by a standard travel insurance policy. Some policies have all of these covers and more, while others might only offer some of these benefits. So check that the cover provided suits your needs before you buy and travel to minimise the chance of any nasty surprises if you are unfortunate enough to have to claim.



c) Additional cover options. In addition to the standard features of a travel insurance policy, some policies will offer additional types of optional cover and you may want to consider whether they are appropriate for your needs. This will often depend on:

• Where you are visiting
• How you booked the holiday
• What you are planning to do on the trip
