Travel Insurance Tips

These days most travellers know how important it is to buy travel insurance. But why do most of us buy it? See how your top reasons for buying travel insurance compare with others in our recent survey of Globelink customers:

Affordable prices

It’s no surprise that top of your list of important factors when buying travel insurance is affordable prices. When you can buy a policy for £16, compared to medical expenses overseas that can run into tens of thousands, we think that’s definitely affordable and great value for money!

Simple quote process and easy to use website
