TRAVEL INSURANCE

Nobody expects to cancel or curtail their travel arrangements, but every year generally due to unfortunate circumstances there are a few who are left in this position. When considering whether to take travel insurance or not it is most important that you understand the financial loss which you will incur in relation to not only your holiday costs but also those associated with medical and health cover for an injury or sudden illness abroad. For example, an air ambulance is likely to cost in excess of £45,000.00 from the UK to the USA’s east coast. Even a scheduled flight, stretcher and doctor escort to Australia will be in excess of £20,000.00. Many people think their credit card accident cover, home insurance, or private health cover is sufficient but in most situations, this is not the case.

YOUR TRAVEL INSURANCE SHOULD COVER THE WHOLE TIME YOU ARE AWAY AND INCLUDE A MINIMUM OF THE FOLLOWING:

CANCELLATION OR CURTAILMENT COVER: A number of situations may cause you to call off your trip or cut it short. This may be for a number of reasons including the following:

  • Injury or illness of insured, travel companion, family member, or business partner

  • Hurricane or natural disaster strikes destination

  • Terrorism or mandatory evacuation at destination

  • Home or business damaged, vandalised, or burglarized

  • An epidemic or pandemic disease

  • Jury duty or military redeployment

  • Required to work, terminated, or transferred

  • Victim of felonious assault prior to the trip

  • Traffic accident prior to the trip

  • Theft of passport or visa prior to the trip

MEDICAL AND HEALTH COVER: Medical and Health Cover for an injury or sudden illness abroad, 24-hour emergency service and assistance, personal liability cover in case you are sued for causing injury or damaging property, lost and stolen possessions cover, extra cover for hazardous activities that are commonly excluded from standard policies.

LUGGAGE: Reimbursement for lost, stolen or damaged luggage and belongings throughout your trip along with travel assistance to replace lost or stolen prescriptions, passports, visas or other important travel documents.

DELAYS: Coverage for trip delay and baggage delay, providing reimbursement for unplanned hotel expenses, meals, clothing and transportation costs.

IMPORTANT: Always ensure that your policy refunds the full cost of your holiday and that your policy includes ‘Cancel-For-Any-Reason’ cover. It must payout if you need to cancel or cut short a trip. Your policy should also cover any pre-paid expenses such as excursions, golf, dinners. Also, it is common practice for insurance providers to only accept applications within a few days of making a reservation and paying the deposit for a schedule. It is therefore recommended that insurance should be taken early in the booking process.

I highly recommend St Andrews Golf Travel! They did an incredible job managing the logistics of our trip, including hotels, restaurants and transfers to and from the airport and to each course. Our driver Ewan paid attention to every detail and made adjustments where needed. Graeme and his team were very responsive and helpful in planning all aspects of our trip. I will definitely use them for my next golf trip to Scotland.

If you’re planning a golf trip to Scotland, England or Ireland, I highly recommend St Andrews Golf Travel. Graeme and Marc were exceptional. They helped us plan all aspects of our golf itinerary including; lodging, course selection, tee times (including guaranteed tee times for the Old Course), caddies, transportation and excursions/dinner reservations. All done professionally and seamlessly. As important, they were very responsive to all questions / issues, and flexible when we changed our plans. EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. Can’t wait for our next trip

Just shortly back from our trip to St. Andrews and could not have been happier. St. Andrew’s Golf Travel did an outstanding job, second time we used them and will definitely rely on them again. We had a few personal challenges and Graeme stepped up to do what we needed to make this trip a truly memorable one. They handled everything from airport pick up, course tee times, caddies, even dining suggestions and reservations. There as not a course, caddie or dinner that did not live up to our expectations. They truly made us feel as if we were home. If golf is your thing and you have not looked in your bucket in a while, tip that thing over and start ticking off the things on the list. Make St. Andrews a number one priority and make St. Andrews Golf Travel your go to guys for a trip of a lifetime, or maybe 2 or 3 trips. I guarantee once you use their services you will be eager to return to Scotland via St Andrews Golf Travel.
Can’t wait to do it all again!

Let me just say that this is a wonderful company to work with. Our trip was originally scheduled for June, 2020 and Marc was easy to work with regarding our options. We were given the opportunity to cancel or postpone (which we ended up doing twice). I know it was difficult to work our group into a year with the Open occurring in St. Andrews and he was great at working around our dates. All pick-ups were prompt, everything was available as discussed or communicated as soon as possible if not available. Marc was great with getting the guys around and Ewan was the absolute best driver for the non-golfers in the group. They accommodated our crazy ideas and were fun, professional, and overall great to work with. We were all sad to leave.

INCREDIBLE. BEST IN CLASS. GENUINE. Stop your search now and book with St. Andrews Golf Travel. They provided best in class service and arrangements while my family and friends were overseas. All 6 travellers would recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing golf trip. We couldn't be more appreciative of their help to design lifelong memories.

5 stars isn't enough to describe how much Marc & Graeme pay attention. From their level of detail, hospitality, their level of connection, personalized service, transportation, hotel and dinner reservations, changes, tee times at world class golf courses, Google should add a 10 star review, because that's what they deserve. We started planning our next trip with them at dinner the last night. Whether you're going to Scotland, Ireland, Dubai, S. Africa, New Zealand, Australia... if you expect the best. You found it!
