Saga has been serving their customers, who are typically 50 years old or more and based in the United Kingdom, since 1959. Alongside a host of services for which the company are particularly renowned, such as financial services, they also provide travel insurance.
Cover is available for two different types of trip: a single, one-off trip which can last up to 120 days and take place in any destination, and an annual policy. The annual policy is perfect for customers who plan to travel several times in the one year. Various destinations and lengths of trip, details of which are available on the Saga website, can be covered on this policy in addition to nominated friends and family, regardless of their age and if they are travelling with you, or not.
Perhaps one of the greatest perks of a Saga travel insurance policy is that both the single and one-off trip policies provide extremely comprehensive cover and for the same eventualities. For example, amongst many other situations, you are covered for cancellation, emergency medical fees, delayed departure, replacement accommodation and the loss of your passport. You are even covered for legal fees and pet care. A detailed list of all eventualities covered, alongside any excesses, is available on the company website.
If you are going on a slightly more adventurous holiday, such as winter sports, Saga travel insurance can provide optional cover for this. It is also possible for various pre-existing medical conditions to be taken into account.
