Going on holiday can often be the highlight of the year, but the cost of getting there can make your eyes water. At Columbus Direct, we understand the need for good value, quality holiday insurance, where cutting corners is not an option. We’re also committed to offering a product that represents value for money, a policy that is flexible and adaptable, so that it can be shaped according to your individual needs.
Our Holiday Insurance is split into three levels of cover, namely Bronze, Silver and Gold. Bronze offers basic levels of cover at highly competitive prices. Silver is our most popular as it’s the middle of the range policy with more comprehensive benefits attached, including cover for cash and documents. For a fully comprehensive plan, you need look no further than our Gold level. Gadget cover is available as an optional extra for all levels of insurance and we have a number of other ways you can tailor the cover level you choose.
Our Winter Sports Cover can be bolted on to any of our holiday insurance policies, as can Cruise Cover, Golf Insurance and Adventure Travel Insurance, to name a few. They can be purchased either as a Single Trip Insurance or a Annual Multi-trip plan, depending upon whether you intend to venture away more than once during a twelve month period.
Another great saving benefit for those selecting Annual Multi-trip Travel Insurance is the fact that children get covered for free. Potentially, this is a huge saving if there a few of you to protect. Any named member of the family group can also travel independently and enjoy the same protection, which in turn, provides even greater flexibility.
We deliver cover to a wide selection of people, even those who may have struggled to find holiday insurance elsewhere. If you’re over 65, suffer from a pre-existing medical condition or simply love to push the boundaries of adventure to the limit, we have a policy that may just suite you.
Whether you plan to take your family to the Algarve and splash in the waves, brave the crowded streets of New York, on the hunt for the local landmarks that we are so used to seeing, or go surfing off Bondi Beach, your holiday will generate memories that you’ll treasure for years to come. So, best remember your trip for all the right reasons. With Columbus Direct tucked in your pocket, as you set out on your adventure, you can sit back, relax and enjoy yourself, knowing we’re there if you need us.
