Types of Travel Insurance
Single trip travel insurance is perfect if you need cheap travel insurance for one break. It’s ideal for those who go away once or twice a year. This cover is for the exact number of days you will be travelling, so you don’t pay for more than you need.
This covers you for all your trips over the next 12 months. If you travel more than twice a year, then this could mean you get the best value for money. Our annual multi-trip cover lets you travel where you want and when you want. No need to purchase insurance for each individual trip.

Frequently asked questions
If your checked luggage has not arrived at your destination airport, you should follow these steps to make a claim:
1. Inform the Customer Services desk or Luggage Services desk at the destination airport that your checked luggage has not arrived on the carousel.
2. If they are unable to locate your checked luggage, the Customer Services desk or Luggage Services desk will provide you with a SITA receipt as proof of your lost luggage containing a Personal Identification Reference Number (PIR).
3. Using the PIR you can then begin to report your claim on the Smart Luggage portal by:
• Enter the PIR number (this should be ten digit reference containing five numbers and five letters).
• Enter your surname
• Enter the date
• Select your Smart Luggage policy number
• Select your flight
• Take a photograph of the proof of loss receipt containing the PIR number and upload it.
• Click “report lost”
4. Once we have received this information we can begin searching for your missing checked luggage
From the moment you report your luggage missing, our automated technology gets to work to try and find it. If it is located, you will receive a text from us with details on how it will be returned to you. However, if after 48 hours your luggage is not found, it is deemed ‘lost’ and £500 will be deposited directly into your bank account you provided us when registering.
Delayed = £50, after 30 minutes
Lost = £500, after 48 hours
The number of units (items of luggage) covered by your ‘smart luggage’ depends on the type of Travel Insurance Policy you have purchased:
• Individual Travel Insurance policy = 1 item of luggage per individual named on the policy
• Couple Travel Insurance policy = 2 items of luggage
• Family Travel Insurance Policy = 2 items of luggage
• Group Travel Insurance policy = 1 item of luggage per individual named on the policy
For full details, please see your policy details.
Our ‘smart luggage’ add-on provides cover for your checked luggage. It is cover in case it is lost or delayed because of an airline or airports mishandling of it. Smart luggage uses automated technology to validate claims and reduce processing times.
Who needs Travel Insurance?
You’re not legally required to take out travel insurance, but many travel agents ask that you have a policy in place before you leave for a trip. If you were to break your leg or need emergency hospital care while you are abroad, travel insurance means you can claim back medical costs. Accidents happen, and if your trip is cancelled or you need to end it early, travel insurance means you are financially covered.
