Travel Insurance

The tip for travel insurance is to either have an annual policy if you travel more than a couple of times a year, or to buy your insurance as soon as you buy your flights or holiday. 

Now is a great time to buy your single trip or annual multi-trip travel insurance with plenty of discounts. From 22 November until midnight 28 November, you can get 20% off a new travel insurance policy with Staysure. Use code: BF20 at checkout to redeem your discount.

Staysure are a reputable company I have used myself in the past. They have

  • Superior-rated COVID-19 cover included as standard
  • Decent Trustpilot reviews
  • You can manage your policy online

You can also try their partner company Avanti who are also offering the same deal. You can find their website here.

Swiss has a pretty awful offer unless it’s for a short haul economy booking in terms of percentage off. Let’s hope that this is just the start and that there will be some companion seat sales for business and first soon like they often do. The promotional code gives a grand total of £17 off! (on fare only not taxes etc)

However, they also have a couple of direct business class fares to Switzerland that aren’t bad.

  • Geneva £195
  • Zurich £218

How to redeem the promo code:

  • Copy promo code: Z1TCSEV6B2N3
  • Select a flight from any of our United Kingdom gateways to Europe.*
