Travel insurance

What you need to know about LV= travel insurance

Here's how we're dealing with coronavirus (COVID-19)

We've made the difficult decision to temporarily stop selling travel insurance to new customers. To best support our staff, we've temporarily changed our opening hours to Monday to Friday 9–6, Saturday 9–5 and Sunday 10– 4 for existing customers. Need to make a claim? No worries, you can still get in touch as normal. Updated on 01/06/2020.
