Regardless of age or pre-existing medical conditions, we provide comprehensive travel cover to enjoy the natural wonders and historic beauty of Ireland. We understand that during these times of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever it is important for you to have clarity as well as security in your travels.

We can offer you comprehensive cover in the exact same way as we always could to destinations that have no restrictions in place. Check the FCDO travel advice for Ireland for current restrictions and advice if you are planning to travel there.

Comprehensive Travel Insurance for Ireland

Travel insurance is an essential part of any holiday planning to Ireland as it can help you with financial assistance for emergency medical bills, loss of luggage and passport, cancellation due to medical circumstances and a lot more to suit your needs. You may need to be repatriated back to the UK. It’s important that you have cover that you can rely on when you need it most.

We want you to enjoy this beautiful landscape and indulge in the culture and character of Ireland with the peace of mind that you’re covered for up to £15million worth of unexpected medical bills including all repatriation, cancellation due to medical conditions and even including enhanced cover for COVID-19.

Should the unexpected happen while you’re away and you require medical attention then let us take the added worry of financial concern from you and allow you to concentrate on the most important thing – you!
