With holidays abroad looking unlikely for most of this summer, specialist travel insurance provider Insurancewith has launched a new policy for Britain’s staycationers. Staycation Plus is one of the UK’s first travel insurance policies designed to give peace of mind to travellers looking for a UK break while the uncertainty over foreign travel restrictions remains.
And since Insurancewith is designed to help people with pre-existing medical conditions, it comes with the additional benefit of 24/7 medical support. Thanks to a partnership with Medical Solutions UK, customers will be able to book a video appointment with a GP, if they have any health concerns.
With the mass summer exodus for Europe’s hotspots unlikely to happen this year, domestic holidays – or staycations – are likely to be at the top of many people’s agenda.
Like international travel insurance, the UK version is designed to protect against many reasons that could mean holidaymakers need to cancel their trip or come home early. It will also cover delays to arrival and the cost of luggage and possessions during the length of a holiday in the UK.
The Staycation Plus policy also includes all the usual travel insurance benefits plus much more:
- No upper age limits
- Reimbursement for vehicle breakdown,
- Cover for event tickets,
- Property damage cover
- Attraction closure cover
- Convenient 24/7 access to a UK based GP at any time during a trip
Sarah Page, brand manager for Insurancewith said: “As there is still uncertainty over how the virus will affect the domestic holiday market, we’ve designed our product to cover the most common issues impacting holidays in the UK.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in inquiries asking about travel insurance for staycations, so we decided it was worth offering something to our customers that covers them for potential mishaps and cancellations.
“Of particular interest for our customers, who have pre-existing medical conditions, is that the policy includes round-the-clock medical support.”
Insurancewith aims to provide everyone a medical condition with a fair and affordable travel insurance policy to cover their upcoming holidays. The multi-award winning brand has led the way in helping customers with conditions such as diabetes, cancer and asthma find affordable cover.
Well-known for its unique medical screening system – which allows people with medical conditions to get cover for a fair premium – and our regular work with the same charities that help our customers on a day-to-day basis.
