However, when sometimes does go wrong it’s much harder to solve the problem while abroad than if you were home. So, no matter what you think about travel insurance, it’s worth to take a look at the links below and get a quote. You will soon realize that travel insurance is much cheaper than you think.
Types of travel insurance
Trip Protection Insurance/ Trip Cancellation Insurance
This insurance covers all the non-refundable travel expenses, in case something goes wrong, such as death, airline strike, bankruptcy of travel operator and many more. The cost (premium) is calculated based on the total trip cost.
Travel Medical Insurance
This insurance covers all the emergency medical expenses while abroad. If you come from a European Union country and you have national insurance, you are covered in Ireland as well (but it won’t cover the costs if the trip is canceled). If you come from US and you have health insurance, make sure to ask your company if you are covered abroad or not.
Ireland is not a dangerous place, but if you fancy some “wilder” experiences, it’s worth to check out the quotes.

Annual Multi-Trip Insurance
