Single Trip Travel Insurance

Award-winning Travel Insurance from just £5.58*.

Single trip insurance is ideal for travellers who don't frequently embark on multiple trips in a year. As such, if you're not planning on multiple trips in a year, a single trip travel insurance policy may be the cover most suitable for you.

Why choose single trip travel insurance?

Great for longer trips

If you're taking an extended trip that exceeds the typical coverage period of an annual multi-trip policy, a single trip policy can provide coverage for the entire duration of your trip.

Tailored coverage for specific trips

You can customise a single trip policy to suit the specific needs and risks associated with a particular journey. This is great for specific trips, such as an extreme sports holiday or a wedding abroad.

Less long-term commitment

single trip policies do not require an annual commitment, making them a great choice for travellers who don't know when, or if they'll be travelling in the future.

Cost-Effective for occasional travellers

single trip insurance may be more cost-effective for those who travel infrequently (such as once a year) as you only pay for coverage of one trip.

Top tips for single trips

  • Pack well in advance: If you embark on a single trip you'll need to ensure that you don't leave anything behind, particularly if you're abroad for a long time.
  • Research the area: Make the most of your time away by planning an itinerary, and ensuring that you don't miss out on any of the star attractions.
  • Vaccinations: These often take weeks to take effect, so be sure to consult your doctor and receive all necessary inoculations in advance.
  • Consider extra cover: If you are planning to engage in any potentially hazardous activities, i.e. absailing or kayaking, be sure to let us know as we'll offer you a cost-effective policy tailored to your trip.
  • Consider medication: If you have a pre-existing medical condition and you need to take medicine with you on your trip, then you can view our travelling with medication page to find out more.
