Should I choose the cheapest travel insurance?

Our Basic Travel Insurance policy is our most affordable travel insurance and can choose to take it on a Single Trip, or Annual Multi-Trip policy.

Unfortunately, things go wrong on holiday more often than we’d like to think. Did you know 1 in 20 people have to claim on their travel insurance*? The unexpected can happen more often than you might’ve realised.

Unwanted costs can include bills for medical treatment and hospital stays, or even flying you back home if you become ill. They can also include replacing lost or stolen baggage or passports.

You might have to cancel your holiday at the last minute, or cut it short and need new flights home.

Even our cheapest policies can give you a level of cover you have confidence in. A Basic Travel Insurance policy can give you the peace of mind that if something goes wrong on your holiday, you’ll have our support.

Should I declare my pre-existing medical conditions on my Basic travel insurance?

You can declare your medical conditions through our online medical screening process, which is a straightforward set of questions for us to understand how your medical condition affects you. Or, if you prefer, you can complete the medical screening over the phone.

It’s important that all pre-existing conditions are declared on your medical travel insurance.

This will avoid large medical bills if you need treatment in another country. Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions may affect the validity of your policy should you need to claim.

"Excellent service on phone when buying travel insurance. We have used Staysure before and had to make a claim from Singapore in an emergency situation. It was handled well, and all financial payments were dealt with efficiently and speedily. Would highly recommend!"
