What are some insurance related queries that I should be aware of?

  • It may seem obvious however you will not be covered under travel insurance when you travel abroad to have any special treatment performed. Many credit cards include travel insurance if the trip is paid for with the card. These travel insurances have a reduced area of validity compared to regular travel insurance.
  • The Insurance Complaints Office therefore does not recommend credit card travel insurance alone. Combined with other travel insurance, they can be valuable because the total sum insured for lost goods, and any payment in the event of an accident, will be higher.
  • If you are thinking about going abroad for treatment, it is best to check with your own travel insurance provider as each with have it’s own policies.
