Travel Insurance – What’s covered?

Travel insurance what to pack

If you carry valuable items while travelling, you need to check your policy to see if they’re covered if you pack them into luggage which is then checked into the hold, as sometimes these items need to be carried on your person in order for them to stay insured in transit.

Below is a list of items which may not be covered by your insurance when put into a suitcase and checked into the hold.

If you’re unsure what’s covered and where it should be packed, please get in touch with us!
