first direct eases holiday stress with even greater policy coverage

first direct has enhanced its already comprehensive, award-winning* Travel Insurance cover, boosting coverage to reflect issues impacting travellers today.

The new enhancements include:

  • cover for customers who want to cancel or cut their trip short following a major incident, such as a natural disaster
  • protection for customers who can’t board their transport because it’s overbooked
  • improved cover for customer’s own sports equipment when they’re using it 

These enhancements are for both new and existing policies.

Nick Harrison, Head of Products at first direct , said: “We hope our customers always remember their holidays for the right reasons. But you can’t plan for everything, so by enhancing our Travel Insurance we’re giving customers that extra peace of mind when they’re planning or booking their holidays.”

Existing cover includes:

  • 15% online discount for all new policies
  • choose single trip (ages 16 to 79) or annual multi-trip (ages 16 to 74) policy
  • up to 9 people covered - ideal for solo travellers, couples, families and groups
  • UK, Europe and Worldwide cover available
  • 24/7/365 emergency medical assistance up to £10m
  • cancellation charges and abandonment cover of up to £5,000
  • cover if you need to cancel or abandon due to a major incident such as a terrorist attack
  • optional cover for baggage, extended trip, scuba diving, golf and winter sports.
