It is estimated that in the UK one in five travellers go abroad without travel insurance thus exposing themselves to the potential of serious financial loss.
For Clients taking bespoke and tailor made holidays to remote and exotic locations, the potential for both higher medical expenses and holiday cancellation claims is greatly enhanced.
Certain Insurers on our panel will automatically include annual travel insurance, whilst others have the facility to opt in or out of this additional policy coverage.
Merritt Insurance arranges cover for:
Annual Travel – As an extension to your home insurance policy to cover members of your household who reside with you.
Cancellation Insurance – With very high cancellation limits to reflect the exclusive nature cost and duration of high end holidays.
