Quick refund

Sadly we had to cancel our holiday to Norfolk Island because of Covid .
Notified Kit on Tuesday and money was refunded in our account by Friday. Fantastic service. We shall rebook when we can and insure with Kit again.  Show details

Very flexible policy

When travel dates changed I was able to adjust the policy dates with no hassles.
The conclusion I have is that the policy was very flexible. I believe that a good company should offer flexible products.  Show details

Best travel insurance ever

Very easy to identify which policy best suits your needs. We had to cancel our trip to NZ last year due to Covid. As we had purchased the policy prior to Covid, Kit refunded in full within a matter of days.We have used kit several times and have a current policy, for our upcoming trip to NSW. Would not insure with any other provider. Show details

Good cover and fast response

This was my first time using Kit travel insurance. My basic policy was well priced and easy to set up. I had to cancel the trip due to Covid. Kit's online claims service was good to use, with clear guidelines. Once I had all my documents in order, my claim was processed quickly and I received the full amount back. I'm very happy with Kit travel Insurance and would use them again.  Show details

Impressive

Very comprehensive insurance cover with competitive pricing. So glad I found 'Travel with KIT'. So easy to understand & set up. My only disappointment was not being able to buy additional cover for an excluded pre-existing medical condition. Will definitely be recommending 'Travel with KIT' to my fellow travellers. Show details

Extremely Disappointed

Supposed value for money except if a claim has to be made. Contact was made with all the relevant paperwork to endorse my claim via their claim form on line. It stated that because of the present travel situation it could take up to a month for the claim to be processed. 3 months later + over 10 phone calls and numerous emails later - still no reply. Claim form and appropriate documentation resubmitted via from my personnel email account to claims@travelwithkit.com but NO COMMUNICATION from them at all. I travel frequently and this is the first and last time I would ever use this company. DO NOT USE THEM. Show details

Surprise result

My overseas trip had to be cancelled owing to COVID. To my surprise and delight my complete premium was refunded to me. Not what I expected from an Insurance Company. Will use Kit again when next I travel. Show details

Took a while to process COVID cancellation claim but they came through and paid a full refund so we're very happy

We chose TWK because it was listed on the Seniors website, included a good discount for seniors and covered for travel to Iran. It was easy to set up online. Show details

Better than I expected

Covid-19 canceled my overseas trip. My policy (bought 5 months before my trip) was well passed 14 days cooling off period. To my surprise, I got my refund back within a couple of days. Show details

one of the best on the market, excellent policy

I am very pleased that i was directed to KIT by a friend, and as a result, I have taken out several travel policies with KIT. I am very pleased with the prices, particulary given that I am over 70, the cost is one of the best going to date, I would reccomend KIT to anyone who wishes to travel and have full coverage, and it is pleasing to know that KIT does NOT take advantage of it's older clients by bumping up the prices to a ridiculous pricing.. I am happy to say that in any futore travel adventures, that, I will certainly call KIT and arrange our policy. Thank you for the opertunity for me to thank KIT for the great service i have received in the past. Gus Campbell. Show details

KIT were everything you could want from a travel insurance firm

Excellent value. But more imortanly they are real people who are doing all they can to help their customers in these crazy pandemic times. Full refund issued with no questions at all when my travel plans were cancelled due to Covid 19. Just wish other operators were as helpful and honest. When travel resumes I will absolutley use and recommend KIT.

Thanks so much guys Show details

Excellent Policy and Support

I booked my travel insurance with this company, and have to say what an excellent service I have received. The communication is instant and with these unprecedented times the response I got did ease the worry and stress of being stranded after my return flights from the UK were cancelled by the airline. The claim procedure on-line was easy to follow but you are able to log-in on-line to see the status at any time.
I would certainly recommend this company and use them again. Thank you. Show details
