Columbus Direct Travel Insurance

Columbus Direct was founded in 1988 and is a brand of the Collinson Group. Collinson, which has offices located all over the globe, specialises in delivering financial, travel, retail, and insurance services. Columbus Direct is a major travel insurance provider that aims to give customers good value policies and an efficient service. It prides itself on being innovative and catering for the needs of all its customers.

Columbus Direct offers single trip and annual multi-trip travel insurance policies. These provide cover for cancellations, trips that are cut short, delays, emergency medical expenses up to a certain limit, personal liability, and personal belongings and baggage. Money and documents are also included in the cover. Over 100 sports and activities are covered for free, including horse riding, kayaking, and scuba diving.

If an activity is not covered as standard, an adventure pack can be purchased to provide further protection. Customers can edit and add to their policy to ensure they are covered for the activities they plan to do. Columbus Direct also offers a set of specific policies to cater for a range of different trips away including winter sports holidays, cruises, and business travel. There are a number of other optional extras that can be purchased alongside a travel insurance policy such as gadget cover and golf cover.

A backpacker/globetrotter travel insurance policy is also available, which provides cover for those travelling for an extended and uninterrupted period.

Columbus Direct can cater for groups with more specialist needs, such as those with pre-existing medical conditions and those aged 65 or over.
