single trip travel insurance

if you’re planning to book a holiday, then you’ll need a good travel insurance policy to protect you. depending on how much you plan to travel within the space of 12 months, this can depend on whether a single trip or an annual multi trip policy is the most suitable type of cover for you.

single trip travel insurance policies are perfect for those travelling once or twice a year as they’re often cheaper than buying an annual multi trip policy (as you’re only paying for protection for one trip) and don’t tie you into one travel insurer for a whole year.

single trip policies are also usually quite flexible, covering holidays for up 94* days, and offer cover for cancellation costs from the moment you buy your policy – which means if you need to cancel your trip for any of the reasons mentioned in your policy after taking out protection, you’ll be covered.
