When you are planning an exciting overseas holiday, the last thing you want to spend time doing is comparing travel insurance products. However, choosing the right travel insurance is just as important as choosing the best luggage or making sure your passport is valid. While you’ll be doing a lot of planning for your trip and none of it will include plans for time spent waiting around airports or in overseas hospitals, the reality is that accidents and delays can happen, but they don’t have to ruin all of those carefully laid plans.

Choose the right international travel insurance

An important consideration when comparing travel insurance policies is to compare the insurer themselves. The insurer is the one you will be working with to create a tailored and inclusive insurance package, they are the ones you will be dealing with if the worst does happen and you need to make a claim and they are the ones you need to be able to rely upon to be there when you need them most.

Therefore, consider the benefits of Travel Insurance Direct, because TID goes beyond just travel insurance, to take care of everything you could think of and plenty of things you didn’t. For example, consider the fact that TID are trusted by over one million people who have chosen Travel Insurance Direct for their quality and affordability and stayed loyal for their reliability and service.

Plus, even if you haven’t heard of Travel Insurance Direct before, you don’t have to worry about their reliability, because TID is underwritten by Lloyd’s who is the world’s leading insurance market. TID also values and protects your security and their e-commerce system is secure, does not allow TID to view or record your credit card details and each transaction is secured with an SSL certificate which supports 128 bit encryption.

TID also offers you a money back guarantee if you are unhappy with your international travel insurance. You can cancel your policy after the 14 day cooling off period and receive a full refund as long as you haven’t made a claim or commenced your trip. However, one of the most unique features of Travel Insurance Direct is that they take a genuine interest in the world and the places their customers are visiting, by being a part of the Footprints Network, which funds community projects around the world.

    I’m looking for insurance that covers me if I miss a flight or the flight is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances and therefore miss connecting flights as all of my accommodation and tours will be booked, so I cannot afford to be waiting in airports to find another flight.
    This seems to be a common gripe on every travel insurance company that I’ve read reviews about.

      Hi Jullie,

      Thank you for your question.

      Depending on your policy, you may have cover for missed flights provided you miss your flight due to an event listed in your TID product disclosure statement. These events may include a vehicle accident or severe weather, natural disaster, hijacking or strike.

      Travel insurance does not cover missed connecting flights if the first transport carrier was late. Liability falls with the airline and it is their responsibility to arrange an alternative flight.

      If you would like to check the cancellation benefit limits, please head to our Travel Insurance quote engine.

    I am overseas at present and I want to purchase travel insurance for 2 Adults from 14 October to 1 November 2015. We will be in Spain and then fly to Muskat in Oman and then Dubai and then fly to Sydney. Do you have Travel Insurance for these countries and also can we purchase insurance whilst we are away already. Thanks Jan
