Provided by the UK operation of US company Chartis, Inc., Barclaycard Travel Insurance offers all the cover you would expect from a major insurance company, but at a price: our sample quote for annual worldwide cover came in at £79.05.
Chartis won "Most Client Responsive Insurer" of the Year 2010 though, so you may find that the level of service warrants the top-end premium. They are themselves a division of AIG, the US giant bailed out back in 2008.
The quote system itself is painless enough, and in addition to single and multi-trip options, you can also choose between single traveller, couple, family, or unrelated group cover. Barclaycard Travel Insurance is available up to the age of 74, which is pretty standard. A number of countries are excluded - check their website for an up to date list.
