About Us

We Care About You

We’ve been around since 1999, supplying travel and breakdown services. We're different from the other travel insurance companies that you might see, based on one simple key thing…we care about you! Why? Well, we believe that everyone should be looked after in a way that not only saves you money but also gives you the best cover and care under our travel policies. We provide first class service which you can depend on if the need ever arises.

Star Cover

Our competitively priced travel insurance cover levels start from 3 Star to 5 Star. We don’t like to confuse our customers with jargon, which is why all of our policies have user friendly wording.

Regardless of the cover level purchased, whenever starttravel.co.uk is needed, we are confident that our products and services will deliver.
