Our specialist insurers,
Campbell Irvine of Kensington, have arranged an annual
package so good you won’t ever have to think about
travel insurance again.
How often have you travelled over-seas without taking
out comprehensive travel insurance? Do the words, ‘I’m
only going away for a few days: nothing will happen,’
sound familiar? We have all done it—and all heard
horror stories in which people have travelled abroad
believing, wrongly, that they were fully covered by
their credit card. A word of warning: the cost of a
single night in a hospital bed in the USA is now a staggering
$12,000; treatment is extra.
With this in mind, we have put together one of the most
comprehensive travel insurance policies available anywhere.
It is exclusively for CountryClubuk members, under-written
by AXA Insurance plc, and at a superb price. Our intention
is to make travelling as easy as possible for you, and
to provide a policy that will cover all your travels
over 12 months, as long as no individual trip is more
than 31 days. And, as an extra reassurance, we have
incorporated a 14-day money-back guarantee.
This exclusive policy is available to
CountryClubuk members aged 65 or younger, living in
the UK or Europe for the duration of the insurance.
Under a different arrangement we can also cover members
aged up to 69.
For family members, cover can include partners for a
small extra premium. Your children, if they are aged
18 years or younger, can be included free of charge,
as long as they permanently reside with you and are
not travelling alone, other than to meet a parent.
The cost of our special policy is only £79 (or
£129 if you wish your partners to be included).
Under the policy you can travel anywhere in the world
without giving advance notice, as you will automatically
be covered for any holiday. For an extra £20 per
member, we can also extend cover to include your business
travel. Should you participate in sporting activities
while you are on holiday, our travel insurance provides
cover for winter sports and scuba diving for up to 21
days, free of charge. Riding and other sports too numerous
to list are also covered.
We have tailored the cover specifically to suit the
needs of members. The benefits per person can be summarised
Medical expenses: £5m
Personal liability: £2m
Personal accident: £20,000
Cancellation or curtailment: £2,000
Hijack of aircraft: £3,000
Failure of flight connections: £150
Interruption of transport: £300
Legal expenses: £5,000
Why does this not include cover
for your personal effects and money? Because these should
already be covered under your household policy—
but you can extend our policy to include your personal
effects on an indemnity basis for an extra premium of
£25 for an individual policy, or £35 for
a couple or family policy. With the personal effects
cover, you receive the following extra benefits:
Accompanied personal effects:
£1,250 (valuables and any one item limited to
Passports and visa: £250
While most travel policies automatically exclude pre-existing
medical conditions, we offer as a service a pre-departure
medical screening. You can discuss with a trained nurse,
in confidence, any pre-existing medical condition either
you or any person upon whose health a trip depends.
The nurse will assess the condition and let you know
immediately whether cover can be extended and, if so,
whether additional terms will be required. To make things
even simpler, we never charge additional premiums to
cover medical conditions.
One area excluded by most travel policies is terrorism.
While we cannot cover members who travel to known problem
areas, we can protect those who travel to normal holiday
destinations, and who are then subject to spontaneous
terrorist attacks (excluding nuclear, biological or
