Enjoying your time in Majorca with Peace of Mind
Majorca has long been a favourite for British holidaymakers. A beautiful island forming part of the dramatic, historic and scenically stunning Balearic islands, we have enjoyed its awesome landscape, exotic beaches and reliable sunny weather for decades. The island’s numerous hotel resorts are always very popular and Majorca has many activities to offer. Other than the famed beaches, fine food and swimming in the pools and clear seas, day trips and excursions offer holiday makers the chance to see a more cultural somewhat unseen side of the island including the superb gothic cathedral – the Caterdral de Mallorca – to the stunning epic landscapes of the Serra de Tramuntana national parks. Forming part of the Balearic islands and autonomous with the mainland, Majorca or Mallorca is named from the Greek meaning “The Larger One”, as opposed to Minorca “The Smaller One”. So whether you are looking for fun-in-the-sun or you’re a culture-vulture, Majorca will surely have something for you and we want you to travel with peace of mind knowing that you have a policy that will protect you when you need it.
What Should a Travel Insurance Policy for Majorca Cover?
Look for a policy that will suit your specific needs. Think about any medical conditions you have and consider what’s important to you. A good travel insurance policy should give you essential cover for:
Emergency medical expenses - comprehensive cover for your pre-existing medical conditions as well as any unforeseen circumstance. Look for a policy that will include cover for any repatriation costs as well as some extras such as accommodation for a family member and other expenses.

Baggage and Personal Property - Your personal property, including your passport, can also be covered by a good insurance policy. If your belongings are lost, damaged or stolen then a policy can cover you for financial loss, as well as offering emergency help when needed.
