Many people love to visit the United Kingdom drawn by family ties, a sense of history and a vibrant culture. Every year, the UK is crowded with gap year backpackers, students on working holidays, and people on holiday. While most have a fantastic time, there are unfortunate travel experiences so travel insurance to the UK is essential.

Travel Insurance Direct offers great value travel insurance for the United Kingdom - it's online and easy.

While the United Kingdom has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with New Zealand, which provides for some hospital treatment in the public health system should you require it during your stay in the UK, this will not cover unlimited medical expenses nor the treatment of an existing medical condition so it does not replace your private health insurance.

If you travel to the UK without travel insurance and the unexpected happens to you, it can be both stressful and expensive - which makes international travel insurance great value compared to the potential cost of an accident.
