Health and Travel

Before you travel

Travelling abroad is exciting, but with so much to do and see when you get there, the it's easy to forget about your health as well as safety.

Each year, people living in the UK make more than 60 million trips abroad. Most of us have a safe trip, but some people get ill or have an accident and need urgent medical treatment while they’re away.

Travel insurance

Whether you're travelling the world for a year or are planning a short term break, it's really important to make sure you have the right travel insurance for your trip abroad. .

While a lot of people think “I’m healthy, I don’t need travel insurance. I'm not going to get sick,”travel insurance is much more than just medical protection.

It covers you when your laptop breaks, your flight is cancelled, a family member dies and you have to fly home, or if you have something stolen.

It’s all purpose emergency cover and is the single most important thing you should get for your trip but hope you never have to use.
