Defaqto 5 Star Rated  

Saga Travel Insurance has been 5 Star Rated by Defaqto for 12 years. You’ve probably seen the Defaqto star rating on various insurers’ websites, but what does it actually mean?

The Defaqto rating is based on cover and shows that we have consistently provided one of the most comprehensive policies on the market. Defaqto is an independent financial research company, which analyses and rates different financial products, travel insurance being one of them.

The experts at Defaqto have selected 46 features of travel insurance that they feel are the most important to people when choosing a travel insurance policy. They then give each policy they review a score against these features and assign a rating using a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest.

In general terms, a 5 Star Rating means it’s a comprehensive product, whereas a 1 Star product is going to be much more basic. If you want to compare travel insurance, looking at the unbiased Defaqto ratings can help you to make an informed decision before buying a policy.

By choosing a policy, such as Saga’s, with a Defaqto 5 Star Rating it means you benefit from the reassurance of having quality cover in place for your trip.
