Make sure you're covered for the worst on any overseas trip with 1Cover's Overseas Travel Insurance
Travelling overseas is an exciting opportunity, but no matter how many times you have done it, you need to remain aware of the risks and dangers too. This is because an accident or event which would seem simple and minimal if it had happened at home, can not only ruin your plans, but cause added emotional and physical stress.
Therefore, whenever you travel overseas, no matter how far or for how long, make sure that you take out international travel insurance. The 1Cover Overseas Travel Insurance policy cannot stop things happening to disrupt your journey, but it can make sure that if the worst does happen and you do fall sick while overseas, or have your luggage stolen, that you are well looked after, reimbursed for any unexpected expenses and able to get on with your holiday as soon as possible.
