Q: What is the ruling on travel insurance? Is the ruling the same as regular insurance?
الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومنه الصدق والصواب
A: The ruling for conventional travel insurance is the same as conventional general insurance. Quite often, medical facilities are not even free for residents of many countries. I am not aware of any UK based travel insurance company but there are Takaful alternatives within some Muslim countries. That said, I am not sure as to whether UK residents can avail of such products.
