Squaremouth UK Travel Insurance Recommendations

Most travelers visiting the United Kingdom are interested in Trip Cancellation coverage to provide reimbursement for travel costs in the event of an unforeseen event that prevents them from taking their trip. Most commonly, this includes an illness or injury, severe weather, terrorist attack, or death to a traveling companion or family member. Trip Cancellation coverage can also reimburse travelers who need to cancel for contracting Covid-19 before their departure.

If a traveler needs to cancel for a covered reason, Trip Cancellation can cover 100% of their prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses. This benefit can reimburse travelers for prepaid and non-refundable trip costs such as flights, hotel accommodations, cruises, or tours. This coverage can reimburse travelers up to 100% of their non-refundable expenses.

Medical coverage is also a primary concern for travelers visiting the United Kingdom.
Squaremouth recommends a comprehensive policy with the Emergency Medical benefit with at least $50,000 in coverage and $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. Emergency Medical can provide reimbursement for travelers who get sick or injured during their travel. Medical Evacuation can reimburse expenses for getting to the nearest adequate medical center.

Comprehensive policies that include Trip Cancellation and Medical benefits typically also include a variety of other benefits to cover the most common concerns of travelers including Trip Interruption, Travel Delay, and lost or delayed luggage.
