Banner Group, Travel Insurance Specialists
There is no one product to suit all, each traveller and their trip is unique.
Banner Insurance provides market leading insurance policies specifically designed for individuals and groups who are living, working, volunteering or teaching overseas.
Banner Insurance is one of the UK's leading providers of specific travel insurance to mission and aid workers, insuring personnel from over 480 organisations from the UK and worldwide since 1992.
Banner Insurance customers are often located around the world, sometimes in high risk regions, where there is a need for poverty relief, aid and missionary work, healthcare, infrastructure development, training and education. We offer competitive insurance premiums to give protection and peace of mind for you and your family.
For whatever reason you are travelling abroad you need adequate travel insurance in place before you go. Unfortunately unforeseen emergencies can happen, so it is important to think carefully about your specific travel insurance needs. Often, a standard travel policy will not cover every eventuality that may arise in these situations.
Credit card accident cover, home insurance, EHIC or private health cover is often not sufficient for the cover you may require.
If you are involved in an emergency abroad it can be extremely expensive and the British Embassy or High Commission will not pay for this.
For example the costs could be:
- £35-45,000 - air ambulance from USA’s East coast
- £12-16,000 - air ambulance from the Canary Islands
- £15-20,000 - scheduled flight, stretcher and Doctor escort from Australia

"Without this cover we would have been in an enormously difficult position, the only alternative would have been for us to self-insure and bear the risks of accident cover and medical emergencies ourselves."
