    Flying from Dublin - Travel Insurance 31st Aug 17 at 9:25 AM
    We've a trip to Finland in the near future, I was looking into travel insurance this morning using TopCashBack but the policies I have checked state they are only valid if flying from a UK airport. Where can I get travel insurance if I am flying from/returning to Dublin? Thanks.

    I'd suggest you give the insurance company a call to verify if you are covered. In my experience when flying from Dublin, almost all the insurers I contacted have stated that as long as you are resident in the UK and are beginning your journey within the UK (i.e. when you leave your house), then they don't really care what airport you are flying from.

    ditto on that. The "journey" starts in the UK, whether by car or public transport. Then continues by air. Anything else would play hell with complex journeys, multicentre holdays and flight connections

    Based on 'Which' reviews we used HolidaySafe for our last insurance. We didn't have to make a claim but they offered comprehensive cover at a reasonable price and even covered pre-existing medical conditions. Previously we've used Boots for annual worldwide travel insurance, which including a US trip from Dublin.

    Most policies will cover you from your journey starting point i.e. your home in NI no matter what airport you are flying from.
