Welcome to Alpha

Welcome to Alpha Travel Insurance

Alpha Travel Insurance has been specifically designed to be simple and straightforward – unusual for an insurance company we appreciate, but let’s face it, life is complicated enough. From our simple to follow website, through to our policy wordings, we have gone to great lengths so that everything is clear and easy to understand.

Planning a gap year, semester-ing abroad, taking a sabbatical, or simply getting away for a few days? Our insurance policies will provide you with peace of mind cover at surprisingly affordable premiums.

Alpha stands out from the crowd because we have no ‘gimmicky extras’ in our policies, we simply give you the cover that provides you with the protection you need for your trip.

We have also done away with different levels of cover at different prices – it’s unnecessarily confusing and can mean that travellers don’t always have the cover they think they have or may in fact need.

Get your Alpha Travel Insurance quote today and buy online. Easy peasy!
