Travel Insurance Direct
Although we no longer partner with WH Smith for their travel insurance, a number of currency exchange outlets have teamed up with InsureandGo to offer last minute travel insurance to customers at major UK airports.
InsureandGo was the first to come up with its ground-breaking travel insurance direct package in the form of ScratchandGo cards, which provide travellers with comprehensive cover in minutes.
Unlike conventional travel insurance, ScratchandGo cards provide quick and hassle free cover. The cards, which can now be purchased from Travelex and TTT currency outlets at Heathrow, Stansted, Gatwick, East midlands, Manchester and many more, can be instantly activated. All that travellers need to do is scratch off the card's panel to reveal a validation code and then contact InsureandGo. This can be done swiftly and easily via the InsureandGo phone lines, web site or with a smart phone. Insurance cover is instant, providing the perfect package for travellers who need to buy their travel insurance at the last minute.
A spokesperson for InsureandGo said: "Over a third of overseas holidaymakers travel without insurance every year. The travel insurance option available through these outlets leaves travellers free to travel with the peace of mind that they have a comprehensive insurance package that could not have been easier to arrange."
As well as instant cover, ScratchandGo cards also offer competitive prices. A £15 Scratch & Go card provides cover for up to 10 days in Europe for one adult and up to three children, as kids go free on all policies. This represents a saving of more than 50% on policies bought from high street travel agencies. InsureandGo has a range of cover available to suit every traveller's needs, ranging from a short stay break in Europe to their annual worldwide family cover which includes winter sports.
