What’s the difference between Essential and Premier cover?
LV= offer two levels of travel insurance; Essential and Defaqto 5 Star rated Premier. Both levels of cover can be for single-trip or annual multi-trip policies. You can select the right amount of cover that suits you for the duration that you need:
- Up to £10m emergency medical cover
- Up to £5,000 if you need to cancel your trip before you travel due to unexpected illness
- No upper age limit on single trip policies and cover for up to 79 years old for annual multi-trip policies
All the benefits of the Essential policy plus:
- Cover if your transport, accommodation or travel provider goes bust
- Cover for delays and cancellations after 24 hours caused by, for example, bad weather, ash clouds and strikes
- Up to £1,000 if you miss your pre-booked transport - e.g. if you miss your flight because of a delayed train
Will LV= consider my pre-existing medical conditions?
Yes, LV= will consider all pre-existing medical conditions. If cover is needed, all medical conditions for everyone included on the policy must be disclosed. If LV= are unable to provide cover for anyone's specific conditions, these will be shown as excluded from cover on your policy schedule.
LV= may charge you for providing cover for any pre-existing conditions. To remove any confusion at the point of claim, they'll either be able to provide cover for all of someone’s pre-existing conditions or none of them. This means they won't cover some conditions and not others and for this reason it is very important that they're told of all conditions (for everyone on the policy), including symptoms and any investigations.
Do LV= have any age limits?
There is no upper age limit on single trip policies, and annual multi-trip policies are available to travellers aged less than 80 years.
Can I add baggage cover?
Yes, baggage, personal belongings and money can all be covered by tailoring your policy with the travel insurance optional extras. You can cover your luggage (including skis and golf clubs), personal items and your travel money with these additional levels of cover:
£3,000 with the Premier policy
- total valuables limit £500
- single item limit £500
£2,000 with the Essential policy
- total valuables limit £300
- single item limit £300
£500 for money (on Premier and Essential policies)
- up to £300 cash
