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.

So, best remember your trip for all the right reasons.
