What is single trip travel insurance?


A single trip insurance policy that will insure you for just one holiday over a set period of time, with cover starting when you take out the policy and ending when you return home.

You can get covered against unexpected costs relating to things like emergency medical expenses, cancellation, travel disruption, lost luggage and more. If you only go away once or twice a year, it will usually be more cost-effective to take out a single trip policy. If you're a frequent traveller, you may want to consider annual multi trip insurance.
