Going on holiday?  Then, make sure you're prepared

Here are some of the features from our travel insurance policy, to help make travelling a little easier, if your arrangements don't go to plan.

2. Stranded Passenger - let us look after you if you're flight is cancelled or delayed

When you're travelling, there's nothing worse than a cancelled or delayed flight - you can be stuck in departures, competing with other fellow travellers to find a place to sit or a free table to grab something to eat.  With travel insurance from Wesleyan, we can make your long wait more comfortable and stress free.  If you're flight is delayed by more than 2 hours, you'll automatically receive an access code to your phone, giving you complimentary entry to a participating executive airport lounge.

Just register your flight and passenger details before you check in.  You'll find access details with your policy documentation.

sun-car3. Collision Damage Waiver - start your journey from home

When hiring a car on holiday, you'll often be offered Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).  A question we're often asked is "what is it and do I need it?".

Collision Damage Waiver basically removes the responsibility of any damage to the hire car whilst you're renting it.  In short, it means that the car rental company will not ask you to pay for the full cost of any damages to the car.  But they may still ask you to pay the excess (or the first part of the costs). 

Car rental companies do offer CDW and policies that reduce or remove the excess, however they're often more expensive than getting it from an insurer.  Make savings on holiday by getting Collision Damage Waiver on your travel insurance policy from Wesleyan, plus you can also get cover for your rental car keys - just in case you lose them.
 
A travel insurance policy for Wesleyan is more than just a document.  It's there to give you the peace of mind you need, to relax on your well-earned holiday knowing that you'll be looked after if something goes wrong.
