Although it's not a regular activity, getting insurance is undoubtedly something we all must do at some point. Whether you are arranging travel, home or car insurance, you will face the daunting task of reading and interpreting every detail of a Policy Wording, Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Product Information Document. Our policies are designed with over 20 years' experience in the travel insurance industry, so we understand the importance of purchasing the right cover for you, your medical conditions and your holiday. If you're spending money on an insurance policy designed to protect you in the event of a medical emergency, you need to understand the extent of the cover you've purchased.
What is a Policy Schedule?
Your OK To Travel insurance Policy Schedule, sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Insurance, is a document that provides specific details about the travel insurance policy you've purchased. It serves as a summary of the policy, outlining essential information such as the policy period, premium paid, area of cover and policy type. The schedule is designed to help policyholders access key elements of their insurance coverage at a glance.
What can I expect to find on my Policy Schedule?
If you've purchased a travel insurance policy with OK To Travel, your Policy Schedule will include the following information:
- Important Contacts - We prioritise emergency contacts. If you are travelling and need emergency medical assistance, you'll find the assistance number at the very top of your Policy Schedule.
- Policyholder's Information - The name of each insured traveller on your policy is shown here along with their date of birth and whether medical conditions have been disclosed.
- Premium Paid - The total amount paid for your travel insurance policy, inclusive of insurance premium tax at 20%. This premium includes any policy add-ons, such as Cruise Cover or Winter Sports.
