For just a £10 monthly account fee you get all these benefits:
* Annual worldwide family (2 adults + 2 children) travel insurance incl. sports and Winter sports cover; Green Flag UK breakdown cover; Identity protection; Card loss assistance; Key protection and more
* £100 cashback and 5.00% AER fixed for 12 months on balances up to £2500, after 12 months the rate changes to 1.00% gross/AER (variable) when you switch.

New or Existing customers of a Santander Preferred in credit option Current Account can get instant upgrade. Its best you do it with an account that has now lost its first 12 month features, as I'm not sure if existing features revert back after you cancel within 14 days!

Point is if you are some one like me who goes on holiday once a year and doesnt want to pay for travel insurance, u can do what im doing, i.e. opt for reward account, go on holiday, cancel reward account as soon as im back and then get refund.. No need to deposit large amounts of money in every month like you have to do with nationwide.

After reading the cover policy, i am amazed at how much they cover!
I love the staff in the Royal Leamington Spa branch. So friendly and extremely helpful. They even gave me the direct branch telephone number for when i wanted to cancel (so I avoid ringing customer services)

Only European so not the same and there are many conditions there is a thread on here about it. Nationwide cover is worth less than £30 from most online insurance companies.

£30 - no it isnt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you cant get annual travel ins for £30, even a weeks' european decent cover is more!

I know because i checked 2 week ago - cheapest i could get it for was £80 for 2 adults...obviously extra amount for adding kids to the policy

their policy is good as unlike alot of policies pre-exisitng conditions are covered - so im told (i dont trust insurance companies)

yes but pre exisiting conditions may not be covered...you cant assume that its a good deal for everyone......ive been quoted £200 for a weeks cover in europe, so the nationwide one wins hands down......you can add to it for additional cost anyway...having said that i need to check the nw small print as they may have changed it between telling me and launch...lol!!

A week's travel insurance 30 quid? What are you on about? I no it itsnt, and I had to have higher cover when I went to Turkey acouple of years ago. That was like les than hlaf the price of 30 quid.
Try shopping about mate, and looking at all the comparassions.

insure and go are good. Have had two claims in recent years and both paid straight away.

Hardly annual if you only get it for under 14 days.

This "deal" only gets you insurance for 2 weeks. I'm not sure if it's even possible to time in right! As you say, you may well apply but not get the account opened in time, they might not give you insurance until it's too late!

Lloyds TSB do free family holiday insurance. We have it.

"Lloyds TSB do free family holiday insurance. We have it."

You pay a monthly fee for it, you don't get it free.
