This is part of our insuring your safety and so in the event of any emergence we have a number to call to have you helped.
You are of course free to organise your own cover.
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 4% charge to do this and the insurance provided is often quite restrictive.
