What is covered?

Your Travel and holiday insurance will cover a wide variety of mishaps, accidents and unpleasant surprises. Perhaps the main thought that people going on holidays have is personal accident. What if you get injured? Insurance will cover most, if not all, of those expenses. Some of our policies cover emergency expenses up to €10,000,000.00!

There is a lot more to it though, as a slip by the pool isn’t the only problem you could face on your holidays. We cover cancellation or curtailment of your holiday, as well as delayed or missed departure.

Delayed baggage at the airport can be a real pain. But don’t worry, our policy can include cover up to €350. It also looks after replacement passports and money in case you lose some things while on holiday.

There are plenty more aspects to holiday insurance such as covering kennel or cattery fees, mugging, catastrophe and overseas legal expenses. If you want a full breakdown of what is covered, then have a look through this information.

There are also different levels of cover. For a little bit higher cost, you can increase the amount of cover that you are given. This will also depend on your age, and some policies are dependent on the age of the person that is being covered.
