If you're planning on taking part in winter sports, participating in a cruise, need golf cover or going abroad on business, there will be no cover under any section of this policy unless you purchase the relevant optional cover for your trip.

You can add any of these optional extras to your plan at any point after you’ve taken out a policy with us. If you would like to add an optional extra to your existing policy, please call us on: 0800 953 0567

Did you know that a flight from Heathrow to Edinburgh releases over 33 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere?* Trees go a long way to help offset these emissions, so it makes sense to replace those lost to deforestation. So, if you're flying away for a well-earned break, you can still do your bit to help.

From now until 31 December 2019, we will be partnering with Tree-Nation to plant one tree for every policy bought online to help with reforestation. We'll even send you an email with a link so you can see where your tree lives in the 'Zurich forest'.

You can learn more about the initiative here.
