Who is Big Blue Cover?

Big Blue Cover is part of ROCK Insurance Group. The group has provided insurance to over a million customers, and specialises in providing cheap travel insurance with a range of benefits.

What are my cover options?

Big Blue Cover provides a range of travel insurance policies, as well as optional extras, so you can tailor your policy if you need to.

The single-trip policy is intended for a one-off trip.

Features of the policy include:

  • Cover from 2 days to 12 months
  • Wide range of sporting activities covered as standard
  • Trips to UK, Europe and Worldwide covered
The Annual Multi-trip policy is a way to insure more than one trip within a year. It saves you the hassle of getting separate insurance for each trip and is also cheaper if you take several trips a year.

What is my excess?

An excess is the amount of money you contribute to each claim you make before Big Blue will pay out.

The amount of excess you have to pay will depend on which level of cover you have, and the nature of your claim. Check your policy schedule, where your excess details will be shown in detail.
