Travel insurance companies Travel insurance company reviews
Few insurers are good enough to be Which? Recommended Providers. To be recommended by Which?, a travel insurer must satisfy our experts that its standard policy offers good cover, and it must also satisfy its customers through great customer service.
Which? experts scrutinised 196 travel insurance policies, and combined our analysis of cover with feedback from thousands of customers. We have rated each policy on its key aspects, including amount of cover provided, to produce a Which? policy score as well as a customer score and a claims satisfaction score, based on how they were rated by customers.
To qualify as a Which? Recommended Provider, an insurer must:
- Be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority
- Be available to the general public
- Have received responses from 30 or more customers in our customer survey
- Have received an average or above policy score (see table for current average score) and a customer score of 70% or above

How we calculate customer and policy scores
We calculated the customer scores and claims satisfaction scores using a combination of overall customer satisfaction and the likelihood of recommending the provider to a friend.
We calculated the policy scores by rating the most important elements of the policy including medical expenses cover limit, cancellation/curtailment limit, travel delay limit, baggage and belongings limit and money limit..
The total score combines both the customer score and policy score.
