Annual multi-trip travel insurance

Nothing quite beats the excitement before a holiday. Setting your out-of-office notification, packing your bags and researching your destination’s hot spots are all part of the thrill, but unfortunately, no matter how much you prepare, things don’t always go according to plan.

Whether you’re flying out to visit friends, travelling around Asia, planning a couple of weeks relaxing by the pool or seeing the sights on a cruise, we believe that nothing should stop you enjoying your well-earned trip. With the right travel insurance, you don’t need to worry about covering costs if there’s a spanner in the works, allowing you to focus on having fun.

What is annual travel insurance?

A multi-trip travel insurance policy lasts for one year, so you can enjoy as many trips abroad (up to 31 days per trip as standard) as you like within a 12-month period without having to worry about your insurance. Most policies cover a variety of eventualities, including illness and injury, and cancellation or curtailment.

Is annual travel insurance right for me?

Got lots of holidays coming up in the next year? Or do you take regular trips to visit a loved one? If you’re a frequent traveller, multi-trip travel insurance is designed for you.

Annual multi-trip travel insurance can be cheaper and easier than taking out multiple single trip policies, making it popular with regular holiday makers and business travellers.
