Hiscox launches new travel insurance policy

Tuesday, 13 December 2011 11:59

A new travel insurance policy has been launched by specialist insurer Hiscox.

The annual product can provide cover for European or worldwide travel and is available for individuals, families or couples via the website or on the phone.

Among the benefits are up to £10 million emergency medical cover and up to £50,000 in legal expenses, as well as £10,000 in cover for political unrest and natural catastrophe evacuation.

There are also additional cover options available to add on to the policy, including business trip cover and protection for winter ski holidays.

Hiscox UK and Ireland managing director Steve Langan said: "This comprehensive annual policy means you can enjoy everything … with peace of mind, knowing that if something does go wrong, you'll get the assistance you need."

Last month, financial research company Defaqto warned winter sports enthusiasts that they must take out proper travel insurance to protect them, as many policies do not offer this kind of cover as standard.
