Compare Travel Insurance FAQ

Should I also use a price comparison site?

Certainly, if you feel like you need some extra information in order to be convinced. Our main aim with providing the data above is to save customers from the need to provide a series of price comparison websites with all of their personal information. Of course, if this is not an issue for you, or if you are already signed up to a price comparison site, it’s always a good idea to make a choice based on the largest amount of information possible!

A core aspect of comparing travel insurance is comparing the cover provided and the benefits – price comparisons will not give you peace of mind that you are covered for all likely eventualities should you need to make a claim. They really only give you a snapshot of the price. Make sure you also compare the levels of cover to get a full overview of the comparison.

Why does the price I have been quoted differ from the price in the comparison table?

Each of the comparison tables above lists a price based on a specific hypothetical scenario; a scenario which is specified in the comparison table’s title. For example, the first comparison table on the list gives a price based on the applicant being a single, 25 year old adult; who intends to take a trip for 6 months in Europe. There are many variables that could change the amount quoted; if a 25 year old, travelling for 7 months, were to apply for the same policy, it would result in a higher cost.

Why is one of the prices from an alternate insurance provider listed in the comparison table different on their website?

All of the prices listed in the comparison tables were correct as of 4th December 2013 when all of the prices from 24/7 travel insurance and the websites of other providers were obtained. All prices quoted from other providers should be considered as subject to change.

Why is there a different selection of quotes from other insurance providers in every comparison table?

In each of the comparison tables displayed on this page, we have attempted to display pricing information from other providers which either provides the best point of comparison to our quote, or offer the broadest range of industry coverage possible. In other words, different companies are more competitive in, or specialise in cover for, specific areas or demographics, so we have attempted to best reflect the needs of customers through our selection.

Does the information in these tables represent the full range of holidays that you offer coverage for?

No, the scenarios that we have included comparison tables for simply represent a broad selection of areas that we provide cover for. If the precise details of your holiday are not represented by one of the tables, simply get a quote today.
