see what countries we cover
In these uncertain and ever changing times, please note that the list of countries below do not represent current FCDO advice and it is very important that you check the FCDO guidelines as to areas safe to travel before you purchase your policy. Our policies do not include cancellation cover where the FCDO changes it's advice due to a pandemic resulting in you not being able to travel to your intended country. More information available on our COVID 19 FAQ page.
Like all insurers, at Puffin we split the world up into a series of regions and, based on the country you specified or region you selected, your policy will be valid for one of those regions.
The regions used vary slight for Annual Multi Trip policies and Single Trip Policies. The regions below represent the Annual Multi Trip policies and are hierarchical so each region listed below includes all the countries that are listed in the region(s) above it. So, for example, "Worldwide Exc USA, Caribbean, Canada and North/South America" includes all the countries listed in "Europe".
For Single Trip Policies the countries you can travel to will be those you have selected at purchase and those displayed to you on your travel insurance schedule.
...and before all of the geographers amongst you start writing to us..... we know that some of these aren't countries, however over the years we've found it useful to represent some areas as countries in their own right as these are the terms used by our customers when considering where they're travelling. For example, Majorca is part of the country of Spain, though many people consider themselves to be going on holiday to Majorca hence Majorca is specifically listed as a country.
