Part of the travel experience is heading into the unknown. Being well prepared is the best way to start. Travel insurance covers you from the moment you purchase the Policy until you come home safely. You’re even covered for cancellation before your trip takes off.
Along the way you’ll be covered for unexpected events beyond your control, including lost bags and unlimited medical cover. You’ll find a summary of our policies in our Policy brochure. For full details of cover and exclusions, see your House of Travel consultant.

More than a third of all claim costs paid by Allianz Global Assistance are for customers that were unable to travel due to unexpected events, so we strongly recommend to everyone to take out travel insurance on the day you pay your deposit.
