HSBC's Select Worldwide travel insurance policy is one of the highest rated policies out there, according to Which?, with a score of 86%. It has also been awarded a Covid Cover rating of complete and comes with impressive medical expenses cover of up to £10m. The policy offers customers standard baggage cover of £2,500 and cancellation cover of £5,000, however the excess payable on medical claims is unknown. Unfortunately it has not been rated by Fairer Finance. Overall, this appears to be a solid choice for anyone looking for travel insurance but they should check the excess on medical claims before purchasing.
