Travel insurance for Individuals and families
We have been working with businesses to help them secure top quality Group Travel Insurance for their employees for many years. We have now expanded this offering to provide an online service for individual clients looking to purchase travel insurance for themselves and their families, from two highly recommended insurers.
We have conducted a competitive process across a range of insurers who offer individual travel insurance, for both annual policies and single trip cover. The criteria we scored the insurers on included medical capability, experience, customer service, benefit levels and pricing.
We are pleased to confirm that Bupa Global Travel and Voyager Insurance came out as the two top ranked providers.
Take a look at the two links to access the full range of their products and a brief summary of the insurers and their offering for individuals
Bupa Global Travel
Bupa is a leading provider of medically-led Travel Insurance and other International Medical Insurance products. Founded in 1947 Bupa is a world renowned healthcare brand offering both insurance products and running healthcare facilities around the world, with customers in over 190 countries
Worldwide Travel Options
Bupa Global’s Worldwide Travel Options is their flagship individual travel insurance product. It provides short term medical and travel insurance for leisure, study or business trips. It is a high end travel insurance product with both the level of coverage and Bupa’s global medical expertise unsurpassed in the Travel Insurance market.
You can choose from either an annual multi-trip plan which allows unlimited trips (up to 30 days in duration), or a single trip policy which can cover you for up to one year. Coverage is worldwide and the application process is simple and can be completed online.
Both the annual and single trip products start with the core medical cover, which is market leading, and allows you to then add on Non-Medical cover (Personal Accident, Lost Baggage, Travel delay etc) and Trip Cancelation cover, should you wish to.
Pre-existing and chronic conditions are not covered if you have been hospitalised, seen a doctor, or had a change in medication in the last 6 months, or if you have refused treatment, or are waiting treatment. You can however, apply to have these covered by completing a pre-existing conditions form as part of the application process which will be reviewed by one of Bupa’s medical consultants and will provide an answer within a few days.
One of the key strengths of Bupa Global’s Travel Insurance products is that it leans on the global medical capability Bupa have by being one of the leading providers of International Private Medical Insurance, and a leading provider of domestic Private Medical Insurance in numerous countries around the world. This includes access to their 24 hour medical helpline, where you can speak to someone medically trained if you are unwell, and they can also help find appropriate local medical facilities for you. You also access Bupa’s in-house Global Medical Centre in an emergency who can liaise doctor to doctor with the local facility you are in, provide a second medical opinion and arrange medical transportation to find you appropriate medical treatment if required.

Bupa Global’s Schengen Travel Insurance Product is designed exclusively for individuals travelling for leisure, study or business to the Schengen travel area in Europe.
The plan has been specifically designed to meet the regulations set by the European Union which state that anyone applying for an entry visa to the Schengen area must prove that they hold a valid medical travel insurance. This insurance is required to cover the costs of emergency treatment, hospitalisation, urgent ambulance transport and medical evacuation back to your home country with an insurance amount of at least €30,000.
Bupa Global’s Schengen Travel Insurance product complies with all these requirements and is able to support any visa application for travel to these Schengen countries.
Voyager was founded in 1996 with the aim of offering high quality travel insurance via intermediaries who were experts in their field.
Over the years Voyager has become very well established in the travel insurance market and developed an excellent reputation for both the quality of their products and also the variety of specialised plans they offer, alongside strong customer service and competitive pricing.
We benchmarked two of their products which would best fit with the individual clients who come to us for support in assisting with their travel insurance.
We are pleased that we are now able to offer both of these products to you and have provided an overview of the cover below, along with the links to access these recommended;

24/7 Emergency Medical Assistance helpline
One-Tap Emergency App and pre-travel country profile information
