Is Select and Cover right for you?

Whether you’re single, living with a partner or have a growing family, Select and Cover could make a lot of sense. With multi-cover insurance, you combine everything under one policy, making it easy to manage your policy and make claims. 

Avoid insurance overlap

Does your mobile phone package already include insurance? When you purchased your new car did it come with breakdown insurance? Do you already have an annual travel insurance policy – perhaps with your bank account?

Compare your existing policies against the Select and Cover options you’re considering to work out if a multi-cover insurance policy could meet your needs.

And remember to compare costs too. You might find that moving your travel, mobile and gadget insurance to a Select and Cover policy could save you money.

Flexible insurance options

You can switch choices annually as your circumstances change. You can swap all your options during an annual review period — we’ll send you a reminder to review your options on the anniversary of your policy.

You can also add and remove 1 option during each year, so long as you maintain a minimum of 3. Keep in mind that if you remove an option, you won’t be able to add that option back again for at least 6 months.

Immediate cover

If you sign up online your cover starts straight away and is continuous until you cancel your policy. So once you're covered, you're covered.

The only exception is if you take out the Starter Life option, there is no cover for the first 12 months for death as a result of a medical condition you knew about when you took out the policy.

Excess and exclusions

You'll need to pay an excess for claims on some options. Restrictions, exclusions, and terms and conditions apply. See the information documents above for more details.

Pre-existing medical conditions

There are some circumstances we won’t be able to cover, based on your health. You should check your circumstances are covered under the ‘Your health section’ in the terms and conditions before booking your trip.

You may be able to get cover from a specialist insurer. The Money and Pensions Service has a list of these insurers – you can check its travel directory or call 0800 1387 777.

Please note, you may not be able to find cover for undiagnosed symptoms and you may need to wait until you have a diagnosis before getting cover elsewhere.
