Country Guides


Travel Insurance Direct takes pride in offering excellent and affordable travel insurance, ski insurance and backpacker policies for all countries of the world.  


Our Country Guide is a good place to start your research and we hope you will find it useful in choosing your next travel adventure.  Each country's page has a link to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) own country advice page which is constantly updated with the latest travel advice and is packed with updated information, as well as notice of any potential or current problems. 


We have included many destinations in our Country Guides, including Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Central America, the Caribbean and Australasia - and these are updated and expanded from time to time.  Don't miss our Ski Guides for information on many of the major ski resorts throughout Europe, the U.S. and Canada. (Yes, there are ski resorts in Tennessee and Chicago!) 


People travel for different reasons and often with nothing more in mind than to relax and escape the routine of their daily lives. Your ideal holiday might involve a week in the sun on a tropical beach, an active trekking and outdoor adventure, skiing or snowboarding  - or a mixture of each!  Many travellers take a gap year or career break to learn new language skills, further their education and life experience, or take on paid or unpaid volunteer work.

Whatever the reason for your visit to our Country Guides it is definitely smart to set off armed with knowledge of the local laws and customs of your destination, as well as the rules of the road and emergency contact details for the nearest consulate or embassy.  If you are unsure whether any of your planned activities are included in your travel insurance policy we have many years' experience and are here to help - so feel free to give us a call.


We recommend that you start your research well in advance of your departure date, if possible. Make a note of all the sights and attractions you definitely do not want to miss, followed by a list of things you would like to do if you have time.  There's nothing worse than returning from your trip to find that you missed out on that quaint little eatery or another must-do, unique experience!


Knowledge is power - and armed with research you can relax and enjoy your travels knowing that you are well prepared - and protected with travel insurance.


Whatever you choose to do and wherever in the world you go, the team here at Travel Insurance Direct would like to wish you safe travels filled with smiles, wonder, and new friends - and memories and photographs to treasure forever!
