Our Business Travel Extension can be added to any policy but our annual cover may be your best option

That way, you can rest easy, knowing that you and your equipment will be properly insured however short notice the flight.

Business travel, so often full of promise when you set out, can also be completely exhausting and fraught, if things don’t go to plan. Columbus Direct recognise that for frequent business travellers, it is important to know where you stand and to have assurance that if things do go wrong, you’ll be covered. We’ve created a policy that is there to make coping with the unexpected just that little bit easier.

Some of the benefits of our business travel insurance include:

  • Protection for business equipment and money.
  • Replacement employee.
  • Cover up to age 85.
  • Cover available for pre-existing medical conditions.

Our Business Travel Extension adds to the benefits usually found on our standard policy. One of your most precious possessions when travelling abroad might be your laptop, your portable office. We’ve got it covered, along with any other necessary business equipment.

We’re determined to limit the inconvenience if the worst was to happen, ensuring that there are measures in place to mitigate any negative impact upon your business. What happens if you fall ill and can’t make a meeting in Madrid, scheduled for that day? If you’re insured with Columbus, we will pay additional travel and accommodation costs for a replacement employee to cover you.

If you want a seamless transition from one work place to another during your travels and an assurance that both you and your equipment are covered, at Columbus we can make it happen. With a fully comprehensive insurance policy in place and the extra business cover that this plan offers, you can be on the move year round, secure in the knowledge that you’re properly insured for all eventualities. Not having the proper travel insurance cover is one risk in business you don’t have to take. 

To add the Business Travel Extension to your policy simply select it from the optional extras on step 3 of the quote process.


Terms and conditions apply:

If you purchase travel insurance online you will receive a 10% discount off the price of standard cover.
