Types of travel insurance available

Single trip travel insurance

This covers you just for one holiday to one destination and is the cheapest option if you just have one trip arranged.

Annual travel insurance

This covers multiple trips abroad during a 12-month period. You will need to specify what countries you are planning to visit. For example, if you are only planning to travel within Europe it will be cheaper than a worldwide policy.

Worldwide policy

If you're travelling outside Europe, you will need to buy a worldwide policy. The price will depend on where you are going to visit. For example, a trip to the US will increase the cost of your travel insurance because medical care there is very expensive.
