Tina's tips for buying cover

The level of cover varies with each policy so read it.

  • Go straight to the exclusions to see if it doesn't suit your needs.
  • If you're buying a package holiday, the agent / tour operator can insist you have cover but you don't have to buy theirs, so shop around.
  • You may have travel insurance with your credit card so check it out.
  • If you want help and a tailor-made policy to suit your needs, go to a broker.
  • Remember that you are paying a small amount of money for a complicated product that is not clear but could cost you dearly, so do your research.
  • If you cannot resolve a complaint with your insurer go to the Financial Services Ombudsman www.financialombudsman.ie
