I travel a lot and always look for good deals on 'decent' travel insurance and I think Sainsburys currently have a very good deal on!

There is a code on the website which gives 15% off single trip insurance (i've never gone for single trip and 2 weeks single cover is usually about the same as an annual policy!). Anyway, the point is that the code "T1738" is also working on Annual policies too!

The price for the annual varies according to your age, i'm 26 and I got Annual world-wide for £44 - a total bargain for the cover they provide! Qudico is also tracking at £18.50 for annual cover - total of £25.50 for world-wide annual cover - amazing deal!

Now, I know the first people on here are going to jump onto Travelsupermarket.com or something and do a quick search and go "But you can get annual world-wide for £18" - yeah, you can, but like I said, this is 'decent' cover. I looked at many of the others and to be honest, many of the policies weren't worth having, unless you only want the medical cover.

Highlights from the £44 cover I got from Sainsburys:

£50 excess (many of the cheap ones are £150-£200, on cover of £500 etc)

Baggage cover - with 'valuables' up to £500. I've claimed for baggage loss before and pretty much anything in your bag that is worth claiming for is classed as a 'valuable' and this pretty much limits your claim. Some policies offer £2000 baggage cover with £200 valuables limit... so thats £200 to cover phone, camera, money etc and £1800 worth of clothes... go figure. £500 valuables limit is the best i've seen on standard cover (the only others as high as this are Halifax and MoreThan (that i've found)).

Airline failure cover (v useful and many policies don't cover this)

All other cover on a par with £70-80 policies.

Anyway... Hope that helps someone! Any questions on Travel Insurance then post away - I travel a lot so have picked up a few bits of useful info over the years!

P.s. You need to enter the code "T1738" AND a valid nectar card number for the discount to be applied.

I'm looking for some travel insurance, this looks decent chers for this. I'm assuming it doesn't have to be a nectar card in MY name which I have to enter (I don't have one but both my mum and dad do!)
#3
I'm guessing this is for a single person and not a family?

Don't think so, just a valid nectar card will do. I'm not sure if you get points too, would be a nice bonus if you did!

Just a little warning, usage of the voucher code may mean you don't get the Quidco cashback...

"Members should only use voucher codes listed on Quidco. If you use voucher codes that are not listed on Quidco your cashback may not track or be declined."

Personal Baggage

If your personal baggage is lost stolen or damaged we will cover the cost of replacement (less wear, tear and depreciation). You must report all losses to the Police within 24 hours and obtain a written report. Single article limit £300, valuables total £500.

Standard fair, with a good single article limit.

However they will still ask if you have cover on your household insurance if a claim is made. My home insurance company states I will not be penalized if they are required to share the burden on such a claim.

#14
Thanks, saved £6 and got £7.50 cashback from a single trip policy. :)
#15
Yeah, my quidco tracked at £18.50 too! Already away on my first trip!
#16

Yep!

Mine tracked also!

Worth bearing in mind that Quidco is paying £10 cashback for single cover! Brilliant if you're off for a quick break like me. My quote came up at £13.57 (£10 odd for the basic one), so £3.57 for travel insurance, providing the cashback comes through. Briefly comparing their cover to other companies, it is much superior.

From the policy conditions...

...Europe
The continent of Europe west of the Ural Mountains including its
neighbouring islands (including the Azores, the Canary Islands,
the Republic of Ireland and Madeira) and non-European countries
bordering the Mediterranean.

It is mate, as are places like Egypt, Morocco, and the like. I think that is changing fairly soon though, in legal terms.
