Comprehensive Worldwide Travel Insurance

Different countries offer different levels of healthcare, and it can be costly for tourists that are not prepared should the worst happen. Worldwide travel insurance will provide you with support and cover for costs resulting from an unexpected medical emergency or cancellation. 

So that you can travel safely, wherever you choose to go, our policies include enhanced COVID-19 cover for FREE.

Comprehensive worldwide cover

Travelling around the world can be the best way to make new memories, experience new cultures and enhance your personal growth. After multiple lockdowns since the Covid pandemic, it can feel invigorating to break the routine and seek freedom in a new destination.

At least 1 in 2 (56%2) adults now view holidays as more important, with 30%3 of those surveyed wishing to use their post-lockdown trips to celebrate and explore. 

While the prospect of travelling is exciting, it’s essential to have comprehensive cover, no matter where you’re travelling to.

At AllClear, we offer flexible ‘Superior’4 rated Covid cover which:

Enhanced Covid-19 worldwide travel insurance

It’s fantastic news that so many countries are now welcoming tourists back, putting your worldwide travel plans back on the agenda. However, safety remains a priority when it comes to travel. 

Drawing on 20 years of industry experience, AllClear have created one of the industry’s most comprehensive Covid-19 travel insurance products on the market.

To help keep travellers safe, AllClear now includes Covid-19 Cover for FREE with all AllClear branded policies, giving you that extra peace of mind.

Chris Rolland, AllClear’s CEO, stated that the enhanced travel insurance options were created “to help protect people to travel safely after months of enforced home isolation”.

What countries does worldwide Travel Insurance cover?

If you’re planning one trip with multiple destinations – you’ll need to let us know when your trip will begin and end, as well as all the countries you’re planning to visit. We will then be able to tailor your cover to your trip.

If you are a frequent traveller, our Annual Travel Insurance policy could save time and money. If you wish to take out an Annual Travel Insurance policy, you can be covered for all trips you take to any destinations within 12 months.

There are two options.

  • Cover anywhere in the world except the USA, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean
  • Cover anywhere in the world, including the USA, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean

What should a worldwide Travel Insurance policy cover?

Look for a policy that includes:

Medical emergency expenses – if you get ill or injured on holiday or need treatment for an existing medical condition that you’ve told your insurance provider about.

Repatriation – if you need medical transport to return to the UK.

Cancellation and curtailment – if an emergency prevents you from going on holiday or means you have to cut it short.

Baggage and personal possessions – if they’re lost, damaged or stolen while travelling.

Will you be covered if you’re travelling during the COVID-19 pandemic?

There are three things to check so that you can make sure you're covered:

  • You must be fit to travel
  • The FCDO must NOT have advised against travel to your destination - check the FCDO travel advice
  • You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements

You can then be covered for emergency medical expenses and cancellation for a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, with AllClear travel insurance with enhanced Coronavirus cover. Existing policyholders should read our Frequently Asked Questions if your trip is affected by Covid-19.

Frequently asked questions

How long will worldwide travel insurance cover you?

You can buy worldwide cover for:

Single trips. This is ideal if you only plan on one or two holidays a year. Some insurers may have limits for how long a single trip can last.

Annual multi-trip insurance, allowing you to go on as many trips as you like during the year covered. Most insurrance providers limit the duration allowed for each trip – this is up to 45 days with an AllClear-branded policy.

Extended stays for longer visits. This works the same way as a single-trip policy, where you’re covered for the length of the one trip. Some insurance providers will offer to cover up to a year, and it’s essential to include all your planned destinations on your policy.

What is the age limit on worldwide travel insurance policies?

We’re pleased to say our AllClear Gold and Gold Plus policies have no age limits, enabling you to travel with peace of mind at any age.

Can you get worldwide travel insurance to include your pre-existing medical conditions?

When buying travel insurance, you will need to be fit to travel and inform us of all pre-existing medical conditions. Failure to disclose may result in your policy becoming invalid. 

Declaring your pre-existing medical conditions is simple. At AllClear, we usually ask a few questions about your health to help make sure you get the right level of cover. We understand that speaking with someone offers more clarity. So, our specialist experts are happy to help guide you through the process over the phone.

Does Worldwide Travel Insurance cover the UK?

Yes, worldwide cover includes UK travel. This means that you can travel to Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England, and countries abroad all in one trip, or they can be included as part of a worldwide Annual Multi-trip Travel Insurance policy.

When does the worldwide travel insurance cover begin?

Full benefits start on the travel dates you have selected. However, if you have chosen  cancellation cover to be included, this cover begins as soon as you buy your policy or commence your annual cover.

For this reason, it’s essential to buy your travel insurance as early as possible – or as soon as you have your trip booked. You can book a single trip policy up to 12 months in advance of your holiday.

What’s the maximum trip length on a single trip travel insurance policy?

Cover duration varies between policies. However, the maximum you can get for a single trip quote online is for up to 92 days. Find out more about maximum trip durations here: How long you can travel for.

Is it best to buy a single or an annual multi-trip policy?

Whether you buy a single or annual multi-trip policy will depend on how often you intend to travel during the next 12 months. If you are going on holiday multiple times throughout the year, an annual policy could work out better value for you.

With an annual multi-trip policy, you can travel as many times as you like within 12 months. There are, however, limits on the number of days you can be away for any one trip, which for some providers also depends upon your age.
