Club Direct has slashed ten per cent from the cost of its travel insurance policies after seeing a giant leap in insurance quotations in recent months.

The offer is open to all types of traveller and will run until the end of December 1999.

The fast-expanding direct insurer provides a multi-lingual telephone advice service with 24-hour access available from anywhere in the world.

A prime attraction of Club Direct's travel insurance is its £10 million worth of medical and emergency assistance cover, with full repatriation and air ambulance support.

Annual cover starts at just over £44 for individuals and around £80 for a family holidaying in Europe.

Worldwide cover rises to just over £67 for individuals and £103.50 for families.

Longer term travel policies range from £40.50 in Europe or £71.10 worldwide for up to two months travel, to £157.50 in Europe and £224.10 for worldwide cover lasting a full year. A reduction of up to 30% is available if baggage insurance is excluded.

Club Direct also provides skiing and single-trip insurance.
