Travel insurance from Saga – cover for the unexpected

Planning a holiday is exciting, and if you buy travel insurance as soon as your holiday’s booked, it’s reassuring to know you’re protected before you even go. Saga Travel Insurance includes up to £10,000 cancellation cover per person per trip, so you’re covered for situations where you have to cancel or abandon your holiday such as:

  • You, or anyone named on the policy, falling ill or getting injured before or during your holiday
  • Severe weather meaning you cannot travel
  • Your airline or accommodation provider becoming insolvent.

Saga Travel Insurance has been awarded a Defaqto 5 Star Rating for the fourth year running, which means it provides high-quality cover and has a comprehensive range of features and benefits. So, as well as cancellation cover, it also includes:

Generous baggage cover – lost, stolen or damaged baggage is covered up to £5,000 based on a maximum of £600 for single articles and £1,000 total valuables limit, giving more protection for your gadgets and jewellery.

Emergency medical cover – there’s up to £10 million cover for emergency medical costs if you have an accident or become ill while on holiday. This amount also covers the cost of getting you home to continue treatment.

24-hour phone line – if you need advice or help before you go on holiday or while you’re away, the Saga Travel Assistance helpline is open 24 hours a day. The friendly, English-speaking team can help with any problem, from replacing lost passports to finding the nearest doctor.

Saga Travel Insurance is provided by Cigna Insurance Services (Europe) Limited, who meets our high standards of quality and service.
