Top Tips Travel Insurance
Our IrelandWays.com holidays don’t include flights or insurance but we highly recommend you book travel insurance for your trip.
Travel insurance will minimize the financial risks in case of illness, accidents, theft, lost luggage and emergencies when you are travelling. It is important to research the types of insurance coverage available before you travel to any destination.
Policies will vary in terms of what is included in a travel insurance package. Does it include medical cover? Does in include baggage insurance? Does it include flight cover? These are the types of questions you should be asking when purchasing any travel insurance for your next Irish tour.
Basic cover generally includes:
- Emergency medical care abroad, personal accident, out-patient medical expenses, repatriation (Sometimes).
- When things go wrong with your travel plans: If the trip is cancelled, if you miss your departure, if there’s any travel delay, if you lose your luggage, travel home care.
- Losing money, passport and other important items: including lost passport expenses, lost money, cover personal liability, legal expenses.
Depending on where you are travelling from your health insurance may not include travel medical insurance cover. Be sure to check with your provider before your travel abroad. Remember if you have any medical conditions such as allergies talk to your doctor well in advance of your trip.
Ensure that you have sufficient supplies for the course of your journey and take the necessary precautions before your walking or cycling holiday in Ireland.
Long distance walking can be the most rewarding active holiday type. Make sure that you are prepared for walking the distances planned for each day and do a fitness check before you leave. Enjoy your trip!
