You’re about to jet off on a trip of a lifetime. You’ve been saving up, will be checking-in to some pretty fabulous places and have devoured TripAdvisor to create a rather awe-inspiring itinerary.
Whether you’re embarking on gap year travels, a honeymoon or a holiday to celebrate your retirement you’ll probably want the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you’re covered if your best-laid plans don’t quite pan out.
Amazingly, 1 in 5 British holidaymakers head off without insurance. And many more fly away with insurance that probably doesn’t meet their needs.
I want to understand what kind of protection you’re looking for as my team set about creating a new travel insurance product for members.
In particular, I’m keen to hear from you if you’re over 50 and have struggled to get good quality insurance because of medical conditions or your age.
I’d also love to hear from you if you’ve been a gap year traveller, or taken out insurance to cover your child’s gap year.
Please share your experiences with us and other members, so we can start to build a product that works better for everyone.
Colin Butler, Head of Partnerships, Co-op Insurance
