Travel Insurance Help!!

Postby kathsanders » Sat May 22, 2010 6:40 am

Hi!
Sorry if this has been asked lots of times before... but...
We're going on the Borneo Sabah Adventure this June and are really excited about it, but we're struggling to find any travel insurance whish meets the criteria of providing 'emergency evacuation' needed by gapadvantures.
We're from the UK and we've tried lots of comparison sites and individual providers but no policy seems to explicitly state that it is covered.
Can anyone help us find an insurance company that will cover this (preferably one that's not too expensive)??

Thank you for any help.

Some credit cards have travel insurance so check with them to see what, if any, coverage you already have. I bought my travel insurance through GAP. It was easy and not all that expensive.

Perhaps try Insuremytrip.com. While primarily for US, it does have a "other countries" search function.

Hi there - Im also from the UK - I have used http://www.columbusdirect.com/ annual multi trip travel insurance for many years now. It is accepted by GAP and all the other companies that i have travelled with.

Hello,
I always use STA travel insurance now.
It covers me for so many adventure activities that I simply cannot get cover for through other insurers.
No, you don't have to be a student to use STA.
They have different levels of cover available.
I'm not sure how they do in price comparisons but I believe that such comprehensive insurance is worth every penny.
I strongly recommend them.
Wishing you safe & happy travels,
Nellio
