Welcome to Alpha

Welcome to Alpha Travel Insurance

The world is a large and exciting place that is just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. 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 to make everything clear and easy to understand.

Whether you are planning a gap year, taking a sabbatical, or simply getting away for a few days, our cheap holiday insurance policies will provide you with peace of mind at surprisingly affordable premiums.

Alpha travel insurance stands out from the crowd because there are no ‘gimmicky extras’ in our policies. We simply give you the cover that provides the protection you need for your trip.

We have also done away with the concept of offering different levels of cover at different prices – we believe that this is unnecessarily confusing and can mean that travellers do not always have the protection they think they have or need.

  • The ability to choose your product and which excess you want to pay in the event of a claim, without removing important elements of cover;
