Defaqto Star Ratings
Our ‘Super Duper’ level of cover gives you 5 Star rated protection.
We are delighted with this rating as it recognises the wide-ranging cover we offer and, most importantly for our customers, the reassurance that they are buying one of the highest quality offerings in the market.
As we all know, buying the cheapest is not always best, and when it comes to travel insurance if you go for a cheap policy it could be an expensive mistake, especially if you find you are not covered when you come to make a claim.
For peace of mind travel, make sure that your holiday insurance covers you correctly and that it meets your needs.

What is a Defaqto Star Rating?
Star Ratings assess the quality and comprehensiveness of the features and benefits financial products such as insurance and protection policies, current accounts, credit cards and investment products offer.
To help consumers see at a glance where a product sits in the market, Star Ratings give each a rating of 1 to 5.
Defaqto independently rates products across more than 60 categories.
“At Defaqto we believe that consumers should base their financial decisions on more than just the price of financial products. People should think about what they need and then buy a product that meets their requirements. It can have serious consequences when, for example, you take out an insurance policy and find that you’re not covered when you’re in an emergency.”
“Star Ratings help consumers see, at a glance, where a product sits in the market based on the comprehensiveness of features and benefits offered. For each product or insurance policy we assess between 40 and 100 features or benefits as well as the terms and conditions.”
For Free Spirit, it means we can be confident that our travel insurance offers some of the most wide-ranging level of features and benefits on the market.
