Worldwide travel insurance questions

Do World First offer all policy types to all destinations?

Yes, we offer three types of policy and they are available for travel to anywhere in the world as long as the FCO isn’t advising against it. Which policy you choose is up to you and depends on your budget and the way you like to travel. The cheapest option is our Economy policy. Our Standard policy gives extra baggage, cancellation and medical cover and our Superior policy offers up to £10m of medical cover as well as gadget cover and lots of other benefits.

Is there anywhere that World First cannot insure me to travel?

We offer a range of worldwide travel insurance and can cover travel to most countries. However, we cannot offer any cover for countries to which the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against visiting at the time your policy is requested.

Do you offer insurance for round the world tickets where I'll visit lots of different destinations in one trip?

Yes. As long as your holiday or trip starts and ends in the UK we will be able to offer you cover. From America to Australia, South Africa to Asia.

I'm planning to have a week snowboarding during my trip. Will I be covered?

We offer winter sports cover that includes cover for both skiing and snowboarding.

I may go scuba diving on my trip. How deep can I go?

Our policies include scuba diving travel insurance to a depth of 30m. You will also be covered for kitesurfing and windsurfing automatically under our sports travel insurance.

My mum is 99 and I would like to take her on holiday. Is it possible to arrange travel insurance that will cover her health problems?

You have come to the right place. We are independent specialists and can offer single-trip travel insurance for people aged up to 100 with pre-existing medical conditions.

Do you insure non-UK residents?

Unfortunately not. But we have negotiated special arrangements with other leading travel insurance specialists who can offer insurance for non-UK residents. Call us and we'll point you in the direction of a great deal.

Do you offer family travel insurance and can my children travel alone?

Yes. Our family travel insurance includes special discounts for single parents too, and children who are insured under the policy can normally travel without being accompanied by the policyholder. It's ideal if your children need to travel abroad for a school trip.

I travel frequently. Would I be better suited to a multi-trip annual travel insurance policy?

It depends on your age, where you are going and how long for. Our cheap annual travel insurance covers anyone aged up to 75. If you are older, we can offer single-trip travel insurance for travellers aged up to 100.
