Columbus Direct - the only one to take with you for a happy carefree holiday!

Travel Insurance with Columbus Direct is safe, affordable and secure. You just tell them what you need, what conditions you need covered, if you are honest with them, they are straight with you. No flanner. No bumph.
What could be simpler?
I would never go anywhere else for my insurance and I have recommended them to loads of folk who, like me, have specific conditions they need covered.

Columbus takes you places

I would recommend Columbus to my family and friends, as there is no hidden costs or small print. You get what you paid for.
Thank you. Just about to book another policy now!

Quick and easy but haven't had to claim

All documents sent to email after purchase online and easy to keep and carry wherever you go. No need to print.
Haven't had to claim so cannot give feedback on that process.

Forget the rest and buy the best 😊

I have used Columbus for many years now, the first time was when I was going on a cruise, I remember ringing customer services about a problem and they were so nice and helpful I never forgot this and felt like finally I have found a company that has the personal touch, which these days with everything being online and automated is something lots of company's have forgotten about ! I have just purchased a annual policy for my daughter today for part of her birthday present ! The other parts being a suitcase and other holiday related things ! I can't recommend this company enough, great customer service nothing is a problem and you feel like they actually care about all their customers !

one of the best holiday insurance

Columbus Direct is a very good holiday insurance provider would like to see high blood pressure and high cholesterol covered in their policy as a standard; this condition only checked when your 55 years old, many of my friends now get insured through the bank as this condition is covered in their policy as standard. always check
columbus First as they are good value for money and are very helpful. as I have never claimed off a insurance cant say how swift they are in dealing with claims .

Just signed up again

Although we were fortunate enough not to have to claim, we decided to go with Columbus again as taking out the insurance is very simple and easy.
They cover all my medical needs without charging through the roof.

Why a catchy title, when Columbusdirect does it all?

Columbus direct do the business. They are reasonably cheap. They offer short or longterm holiday insurance. Rightly or wrongly they are the only company i use for my holiday insurance

I found Columbus to be an excellent insurance provider for my travel requirements

I have booked with Columbus travel for my holidays abroad for the last several years. I find the online system easy to use, the price competitive and the whole process is very easy and only takes me a few minutes to arrange whilst on my lunch break. In fact we have booked to go away again in May this year to Marrakech and I am about to organise some more insurance for us!

Very straightforward and didn't cost too much - I'd recommend them!

I bought their insurance for my holiday to Malta - I can't fault their website as everything was easy to follow. It didn't cost too much and the policy seemed to tick all the boxes - I'd definitely recommend Columbus Direct.

A fantastic and professional company

I have used Columbus for Travel Insurance all the time when I have gone on holiday and find the staff and the standard of customer service to be outstanding. The website and the format of what is included in the various insurance policies for travel is clearly and concisely presented and easy for customers to choose the most appropriate form of cover.

I would recommend Columbus to my friends and family for travel and I will continue to use your services for when I travel. Thank you and continue to provide the excellent service you have always done.
