What is annual travel insurance?

If you go on holiday more than twice a year, annual travel insurance could help to make sure mishaps like illness, cancellations or lost luggage don’t completely derail your holiday.

  • It’s worth considering taking out an annual travel insurance policy, rather than a single-trip policy - even if you’re just going on a handful of weekenders rather than long breaks
  • Multi-trip policies can cover domestic travel too – not just holidays abroad. So if you're planning a weekend away in London - you could be covered!

What could annual travel insurance cover?

  • With a valid annual policy, you could be covered for any unexpected or last minute trips you might want to take
  • Any holidays you book throughout the year could have an automatic cancellation cover in place, meaning that if you were forced to cancel your holiday due to an illness, redundancy or family bereavement, you could claim back the costs of missed flights and hotels
  • You could also be covered for some adventurous sports, but make sure you check your policy to see if you’re covered for any activities you might have planned!

You could also be covered for:

    • Medical expenses and transportation cost back to the UK if you get ill or injured abroad
    • Your baggage, personal belongings and money could also be covered if they are stolen, accidently lost or damaged on your trip
    • Airline failure - Many travel insurance providers could offer protection against your airline going bankrupt

Travel tips:

  • Declare any pre-existing medical conditions when you take out an annual policy, including any medical conditions that you develop during the term of your policy
  • 45% of people buy travel insurance less than a week before going away*, meaning that they might not be covered for any cancellations - so make sure you get your policy in advance!
  • Report your items lost or stolen within 24 hours to the police before you make a claim
  • Annual policies have a limit on how many days you can travel consecutively – this is usually around 31 days. So if you’re planning an extended trip, consider backpacker cover which could cover you for a longer period

*Confused.com found that almost half of people in 2012 bought travel insurance less than a week before departing and 2% buy their policy on the day they leave!
