Single or annual multi-trip insurance cover
M&S Travel Insurance offers a choice of cover for you and your family, so you can choose your policy depending on your holiday and individual needs.
Replacement of lost or stolen items
Money and travellers' cheques could be replaced if they're lost or stolen (age limits apply). We could even pay for the unused portion of your passport or driving licence. Limits apply.
Medical emergency cover
If you're ill or have an accident while on holiday, your medical expenses could be covered up to £10 million.
Cancellation or curtailment
Claim compensation for irrecoverable costs up to £6,000 if your trip is affected by illness, injury or redundancy (subject to policy terms and conditions).
Cover for independent travel
If you book your flights, hotels and car hire separately (not through a tour operator) our optional travel disruption cover could insure you against natural disasters, bad weather, strikes, cancellation due to British FCO advice or denial of boarding (T&Cs apply).
No fees to change or cancel your policy
If you need to cancel or change your policy during the annual policy term, no administration fees will be charged.
Enhance your policy
Baggage – protection if your bags go missing or get damaged.
Hazardous activities or winter sports – cover for various activities, including snow activities plus winter sports equipment loss/damage and even piste closure.
Online medical screening
You don't have to discuss existing medical conditions over the phone. Simply fill out the online form to complete your medical assessment and we'll let you know if cover is available.
