Travel insurance

Travel insurance for your trip to Sri Lanka

Travel insurance helps protect against the unexpected. A primary incentive to get travel insurance can be for the emergency medical assistance. It’s a wise thing to get travel insurance because you can easily spend over GBP 10,000 for treatment and transportation expenses. Don’t wait too long before purchasing a travel insurance because many travel insurance coverages require you to purchase your plan within a specific number of days of making that initial trip deposit if the coverage is to be in effect.
