Travel Insurance

A protected traveller is a happy traveller.

The right cover, whatever the weather

Travelling – a wonderful, exciting pastime that can quickly turn into a stressful experience if something goes wrong. Rather than righting wrongs as it’s supposed to, poor travel insurance cover only adds salt to the wound if you’ve paid a premium only to find that very few scenarios have actually been taken into account.

If you’ve arranged your travel insurance at the last minute, chances are that you have gone for what is known as a single trip travel insurance policy. This can be fine if it is fit for purpose, but there are other options out there that could suit your travel plans better.

If you want our independent advice on how to best protect your travels, then the team at Shearwater can arrange affordable cover for all kinds of travel adventures and trips, from short-breaks to round-the-world excursions.

  • Single trip
  • Annual cover
  • Long stay
  • Pre-existing medical conditions
  • 65 years +
  • Group / family travel
  • 24 hour emergency help line

We can usually arrange travel insurance that covers pre-existing medical conditions. However, if for some reason we are unable to find you affordable travel insurance for your medical conditions, the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA) has launched a directory listing companies that may be able to help you. The directory can be accessed by either clicking here or calling 0370 950 1790

Multi-Trip & Long Stay

You can be covered for a number of trips over the course of the year with one policy, referred to as annual or multi-trip travel insurance and this can even include the whole family. If only booking flights and hotels could be done in the same way. 

Most standard insurance policies will only cover you for a limited period to reflect the length of a typical break. But there are those of us who might want to extend their stay, such as if they’re visiting relatives, on a gap year, or venturing further afield. For such cases, there is long stay travel insurance.

Age & Illness shouldn't clip your wings

The last thing you want to be told after a long standing or pre-existing illness is that you’re uninsurable for a much deserved trip away. With the help of the team at Shearwater and a pre-existing medical condition travel insurance policy, it doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s not uncommon for an off-the-shelf travel insurance policy premium to double when you reach the age of 65, which can quickly cancel out the other benefits of discounted entrance fees at the many attractions around Britain and Europe. At Shearwater, the insurance providers who offer a fairer premium on travel insurance for over 65s are on our radar.  More importantly, we know what’s covered, and what’s not, so we can get your protection right before you go away.
