Check your policy covers all areas you are travelling

Travel Insurance isn’t one size fits all - different areas may require different types of cover. Make sure you check that you are covered for the area you are travelling to, and that any activities you are doing are covered under your policy.

Make sure all your favourite travel essentials are covered, including your electronics

Cover levels can vary between policies, check that your insurance policy covers your luggage and travel documents if they are lost, damaged or stolen, including your electronics.
