Frequently Asked Questions
Top Travel Insurance FAQ’s
What is travel insurance?
Travel insurance is a type of insurance that covers you for costs associated with travelling. If you are going on a holiday it is recommended to get travel insurance to protect your trip from unexpected medical expenses, trip cancellations, lost luggage and other losses incurred whilst travelling. If you take out travel insurance, it is always important to read your policy documents to know exactly what your trip is covered for.
Is it worth it to get travel insurance?
Yes, going away without travel insurance could be a huge mistake. We know that travel insurance can seem like just another expense but there are many reasons why travel insurance is worth it; if you need to cancel you holiday, your baggage is lost or you need immediate medical attention plus many more reasons why you need travel insurance.
What should travel insurance cost?
The cost of travel insurance varies depending on a range of factors such as age, medical history, destination and what type of cover you will need. To give you a rough idea of prices of travel insurance, GoSkippy offer you a 7 day trip covered for as little as £6.68.
Can you buy travel insurance after booking a flight?
Yes of course – you’d need a start and end date for the trip. We would recommend arranging your travel insurance as soon as you have booked your holiday so that you have cancellation cover in place. Please note that on single trip policies your cancellation cover will start as soon as you buy your policy and on annual policies cover starts from the start date of the policy.
What cover do we provide?
What levels of cover do you provide?
GoSkippy provides two policy types; Single Trip and Annual Multi Trip. Each travel insurance policy has Bronze, Silver or Gold cover depending on which level suits your travel needs the best.
Can I get cover for activities like water sports, skiing, horse riding, etc?
Yes, we can provide cover for adventure sports and winter sports, when you start your quote you can choose what activities you are likely to do whilst on your holiday or travelling and that you would require cover for.

Is there an age limit for Single Trip Insurance policies?
We do not have an age limit on single trip policies.
Is there an age limit for annual multi-trip travel insurance policies?

Myself and my partner live at separate addresses. Can we still buy family cover?
A family policy is insured and spouse/civil partner residing at the same address plus up to 4 dependent children or under 18. We, therefore, can only cover as individuals on the same travel insurance policy.
Am I limited to where I can travel?
You must follow FCO advice which can be found here https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice certain policies restrict travel to certain countries. Refer to your travel insurance policy documents for more information or speak to one of our travel experts on: 0344 7769311
