As there are so many travel insurance policies on the market, it’s sometimes hard to decide what cover you need for each trip. We took a look at one of the travel insurance policies offered by a leading bank in the UK, to see what benefits it has to offer in comparison with Globelink Travel Insurance.

As Globelink specialises mostly in travel insurance, it offers a wider range of cover options, including the policies tailored to Single Trip and Annual Multi-trip as well as Backpackers, Winter Sports and 66+ Travel Insurance. These products are aimed at suiting the requirements of all our customers.

We offer Already Travelling Insurance on the strict understanding that:
There is a 48 hour waiting period from the date of policy issue before the insurance takes effect as a fraud prevention measure. New Claims requiring inpatient treatment which can be independently verified, can be made within the first 48 hours.
There is no 14 day cooling off period when you are already travelling, so no refund is available in the event you cancel your policy, or return home early.
