SlovakiaWhen you’re getting ready for your trip to Slovakia, you will probably have travel insurance in place and might be wondering about others too, like life insurance.

If it’s a regular holiday and you’re only going for a short while, you’ll likely find that you can get insurance at normal terms.

When you talk to our team, we’ll want to know a few things like:

  • How long will you be staying in Slovakia?
  • What’s the reason for your trip to Slovakia?
  • When will you travel to Slovakia?

If your trip is under 30 days, you’ll probably be able to get normal terms of cover, which means you won’t have to pay any premium increases.

Whether it’s for a holiday or a business trip, if you’re planning to stay longer than 30 days in Slovakia, you’ll need to ensure you have the right insurer for your circumstances. A lot of insurers will not accept application for life insurance if you spend more than 30 consecutive days outside of the UK in on go.

Our award winning advisers are here to search the market for you, so you don’t have to, to make sure that you get the best life insurance cover.

British citizens who have moved abroad can often still access life insurance and critical illness cover in the UK. There are specific rules that you must follow to be eligible for new life insurance and critical illness policies, and we are here to strip out the jargon and get you the cover that you need.

Critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum of money, if you are diagnosed with a medical condition that is listed in the insurer’s claims set e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke.

When travelling to Slovakia, you’ll likely come across offers for critical illness coverage at standard terms. But how long you stay there each time and how often you visit in a year will help us choose which insurance provider suits you best.

If you often go to Slovakia for work, it’s really important to choose the best insurer, as some will be cautious about offering you critical illness cover. They usually want to know what kind of work you’re doing there, how frequently you’re going over to Slovakia, and if you stay longer than 30 days in any singular trip. it’s all about making sure that you are a UK resident and eligible for their policy.

Our advisers know which insurers to place your application with so that you get the best terms for critical illness cover.

Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.

Income protection should be fine to arrange if you are travelling to Slovakia for a holiday or short business trip. If you spend quite a bit of time outside of the UK each year, this can affect which insurer is going to be best for you as some insurers won’t offer you income protection.

If your job takes you to Slovakia this can sometimes have an impact on your income protection application. We’ll need to find out from you if you pay UK tax and if you are a UK resident, in order to make sure the policy is appropriate for you.

Our expert advisers will listen to your circumstances and let you know the best way to protect your income.
