Travel insurance for high risk countries

Travel advice

If you are unsure whether the area you are travelling to is 'high risk' please visit https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice for up to date travel advice.

Whether you are a journalist, photographer, security worker or visiting a country for business or pleasure purposes, you will require travel insurance to cover you for medical expenses and your baggage.

However, if you are visiting to a country or region which is not recommended for travel to by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) you will find that most travel insurance companies will decline to insure you. At Versatile insurance, we have arranged an exclusive scheme underwritten by Lloyd's of London to offer instant quotations and immediate cover at competitive premiums.

  • Conflict and War Zones
  • Areas of Unrest and Crisis
  • Unstable Countries
  • Deal with a UK based company and UK staff
  • Underwritten by Lloyd's of London
  • Pay in Sterling by Master Card or Visa

 

Please note: This cover is only for travellers looking to leave from the UK.

If you don't like filling in forms, or want to speak to a human, please call us on 01837 658955 during office hours 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
