72 million holidays. Every one unique. In the UK we take over 72 million holidays overseas every year. And whether it’s a cruise in the Caribbean or walking The Great Wall of China, no two holidays are ever the same. So, when it comes to cover, why do so many travel insurance policies try and squeeze your holiday into a one-size-fits-all solution?
Our Specialist Travel Insurance cover can include:
- Cover up to the age of 100
- Long stay and one-way trips
- Group Travel
- High risk travel insurance for existing or pre-existing medical conditions, such as cancer, heart or terminal illness.
At Higos, we provide travel insurance that’s genuinely tailored to your travel plans. And if you’re going somewhere off the beaten track or indulging your passion for extreme sports, we can help there too – even if you’re 95 years old or you have an existing medical condition. With Higos, you always know you’re properly protected with travel health insurance and can enjoy your holiday with complete peace of mind.
Our travel insurance policies are available for individual trips or as an annual policy for multiple trips. We can arrange high risk travel insurance for long-stay and one-way trips too.

How Travelling In The EU On Or After The 1st January 2021 May Impact Your Clients' Travel Insurance.
If you’re planning to travel in the EU on or after the 1st January 2021 you may no longer have access to free emergency medical insurance within the EU and without travel health insurance you could be charged for your healthcare needs.
However, the UK has agreed with the EU to allow a new GHIC card which gives you emergency medical care should you need it. If you combine this with comprehensive high risk travel insurance, you will be able to travel free of worries.
Advice for Travel Insurance policyholders
When travelling abroad, please make sure you have your emergency travel health insurance claims telephone number. Also, remember to write your policy number down in a few places where you can access it – perhaps on your smartphone notes app, in your wallet and your hand luggage – just in case one of these is lost or stolen. If you need a high risk travel insurance policy, this is even more important for maintaining peace of mind.
