multi trip travel insurance
if you enjoy taking multiple holidays a year, then a multi trip travel insurance policy may be the type of cover most suitable for you.
a multi trip policy (otherwise known as an annual multi trip travel insurance policy) can protect you for an unlimited number of trips within the space of a year. that means from the second your policy starts, until the day it ends, you can go on as many holidays as you like at no extra cost, as long as each trip doesn’t last more than 31 days.
multi trip policies can offer better value for money for those who travel more than twice a year, as it can work out cheaper than buying individual single trip protection. they can also save you a lot of time and hassle as you’ll only have to put in your information once a year (unless something changes in your life that you need to tell us about). what’s more, most multi trip policies available here at albert & eddie also cover domestic breaks too, which means if you often enjoy a weekend away in the UK, you’ll also have protection for that trip too (provided you’re staying away from home for more than two nights and have paid for accommodation).

frequently asked questions
can I buy a multi trip policy if have a medical condition?
yes, you can buy a multi trip policy if you have a medical condition – at least in most cases! at albert & eddie, we believe that having a medical condition shouldn’t stop you from being able to travel. that’s why the policies we offer include specialist medical travel insurance brands that consider cover for most medical conditions.
it’s really easy to declare your medical history, simply answer the medical questions honestly and accurately on our online quote journey and we’ll do our best to match your travel needs with a suitable brand. sometimes we may require more information about your health, or a particular complex condition, so we might ask you to give us a ring to chat things through instead.
it’s really important that you correctly and fully declare your medical conditions when buying a travel insurance policy. the reason being, if you later need to submit a claim for reason linked to your medical condition, you may not be covered and have to foot the bill yourself.
when does cover start for a multi trip travel insurance policy?
when buying a multi trip policy, you choose which date you’d like your cover to start from (which can be anytime up to 31 days before your first trip takes place). this means that you could start your policy on the same day as you paid for it. or, you could activate the policy from the first day of your next trip.
while starting the policy on the first day of your trip may sound like a preferred option, you should be mindful that if anything were to happen between buying your policy and the policy start date, you wouldn’t be covered for cancellation costs. for this reason, it is sensible to start your policy the second you book your holiday, just in case you need to cancel it.
how many trips can I take on a multi trip policy?
most multi trip policies at albert & eddie will allow you to travel for an unlimited number of trips within a 12-month period, as long as you do not stay abroad for more than 31 days per trip.
if you’re planning to be away from the UK for more than 31 days, then you may benefit from taking out a longstay travel insurance policy instead.
