Some people have credit cards which offer travel insurance as part of their product, and we accept this, but you need to ensure you meet all the credit cards terms and conditions and inform them and get a confirmation that you are covered. Yes if you need to you can pay for part of your trip with us on Credit card if you need to do this to activate your insurance but note there is a 5% charge to do this (on the amount you put through the credit card) and the insurance provided is often quite restrictive.
Please do your own research, you may find your medical insurance has a good policy add-on, or your a member of something like AA.
