Traveling to the UK: What Do You Need for Entry?

Your adventure to the United Kingdom should begin with checking the entry requirements.

Passport Validity

Ensure that your passport is valid as long as you're staying in the United Kingdom and you should always have at least one blank page ready for the immigration stamp in your passport.

Tourist Visa

Citizens of many countries, including the US, are allowed to visit the United Kingdom without a visa, and travelers are permitted to stay for up to 6 months. Nevertheless, please check individual requirements according to your home country.

Do You Need Travel Insurance When Traveling to the UK?

Travel insurance isn't required when visiting the United Kingdom, but as with any international trip, it's a smart choice.

What If You Get Delayed?

Travel delays can be an expensive headache and are often due to factors completely out of your control. These delays are often a side-effect of potentially trip-wrecking events, like a canceled flight or ending up in the hospital, scenarios that could result in extra hotel costs, unexpected transportation costs and more. That’s why our travel protection plans are designed to include Travel Delay coverage with every plan available here.

What If You Have to Cancel Your Trip?

Traveling to the United Kingdom from the U.S. often requires months of preparation. It’s hard to predict what may come up during the time you’re waiting to depart.

Our travel insurance addresses this concern by reimbursing prepaid, non-refundable travel costs with Trip Cancellation coverage if cancellation of the trip results from a covered reason.

Covered Reasons to Cancel
