Travel Insurance Features at a Glance


Not sure whether a policy is right for you? Confused by how much cover each policy offers? We've teamed up with Defaqto, an independent researcher of financial products to help you when choosing travel insurance that best suits your travel needs.

Defaqto's Star Ratings are based on the quality and level of features and benefits included in each policy. The information they provide is unbiased and comprehensive, enabling you to make a decision based on the level of cover included, instead of just on price.

What do the ratings mean?

Defaqto give the following 5 star ratings:

  • 1 - a basic product, with a low level of features and benefits
  • 2 - a product typically offering a below average range of features and benefits
  • 3 - a standard product providing an average level of features and benefits
  • 4 - a product with a good level of features and benefits
  • 5 - an excellent product with a comprehensive range of features and benefits

As you would expect, a 5-star policy will provide you with many more features and benefits, and is likely to cost more than a basic 1 star product.

How will this help me?

Chances are, when you compare travel insurance quotes, you're not going to know the ins and outs of the levels of cover of every single quote you get back, and let's face it, most of us don't have the time or inclination to trawl through every detail.

The 5 Star Ratings give you a straightforward overview of the features each policy offers, so you can gauge whether there may be enough cover for your trip requirements, or if it offers additional benefits that you may not need (or want to pay extra for).

Where can I see the 5 Star Ratings?
