An awesome new product has hit the market for anybody under 30 who is looking to travel and stay protected on a budget – It’s the Student Flights Black Market Travel Insurance, and dahm it looks fine! It’s exclusive to the brand, and is a world first in terms of inclusions and discounts.
Ever been living and working in England, or France, or Cambodia and got so sick you couldn’t work? Did your rent fall behind? Covermore heard you crying and have sent help – So if you’re deemed unfit to work for 5 or more days, you’ll be eligible to claim the amount you have to pay in rent until you get better. Jump back into bed, and sleep it off my friend.
And my fellow USA travellers will hear me here – tried buying a policy for America only to be given a quote you could buy a small car with? In all fairness, America have a terrible medical system and without travel insurance, a trip to the ICU will set you back $5,000 USD per night, so the pricing for the insurance is understandable. But when you’re a poor Uni student (or just a poor 25 year old, I feel you), it can seem quite stiff. There’s always been excess options of $0 (the best but most expensive), $100 and $250 but this new policy has a $1,000 option. It means the price you pay for your insurance now is much lower than your smaller excess options which is grand (Vegas money!), however make sure you fully understand that if you need to make a claim, you’ll pay the first $1,000, before Covermore step in and take care of the rest. This means you really eliminate a lot of claims you might make, for example stolen luggage, phones etc as they’ll all generally be claims under a thousand dollars. But for the medical emergencies, even a simple Xray, this one will be a lifesaver.
Has your RyanAir, those trusty on time specialists, flight been delayed? Are you going to miss the first day of your pre paid Oktoberfest package because of this? Blackmarket cover will swoop in and help get you there on time with another, on time provider with cover of up to $2,000! This also covers 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries, weddings, funerals and pre paid conferences.
They’ve also added in bundles of extra covered activities, like quad biking, jet skiing, abseiling and scuba diving which are not covered on the other policies and is a great bonus for the adventurous.
It still covers all of the normal things like unlimited medical and dental (which is a huge plus that Covermore offer, many insurers will at least cap your dental at $500), $5,000 of luggage cover (now including Go Pros) and $3,000 for travel documents.
