Columbus Direct is a major travel insurance provider that aims to give customers good value policies and an efficient service. It prides itself on being innovative and catering for the needs of all its customers.
Columbus Direct offers single trip and annual multi-trip travel insurance policies.

Money and documents are also included in the cover. Over 100 sports and activities are covered for free, including horse riding, kayaking, and scuba diving.
