1. What we collect and how we collect it

We provide a Travel Insurance Comparison Service which allows you to compare from a range of Travel Insurance policies and providers.

We operate our Travel Insurance Comparison Service online through our website. When you use our Comparison Service, we may collect details such as your name, email address, and telephone number. If you provide us with your contact details, we will also collect details about the Travel Insurance policies that you compared. If you decide to buy a policy, we’ll refer you directly to the relevant insurer so that you can complete your purchase.

If you don’t provide us with your contact details, or if you provide us with incorrect or incomplete information, then we won’t be able to send the comparison results to you.

We collect, hold, use and disclose personal information so that we can:

  • provide you with our Comparison Service;
  • send to you your results so that you can access them at any time;
  • improve our understanding of your interests in relation to our services and offers, including improving our data analytics capability to provide our customers with better comparisons;
  • conduct research and perform surveys to improve our understanding about your experience and views on travel insurance;
  • manage our internal financial management and accounting; and
  • ensure we meet our legal obligations.
