Single Trip or Annual Multi-Trip?

Taking out a single trip policy or an annual multi-trip policy can be a big deciding point. If you're planning on more than one holiday a year, then taking out an annual policy might be in your better interest. Here's a table below weighing up the similarities and differences. For more information, check out our comparison page: Single vs. Annual Trip.

Travelling with pre-existing medical conditions

If you're thinking of travelling and have a pre-existing medical condition, it may be worth considering taking out a travel insurance policy for medical conditions. At Holiday extras, we cover the majority of pre-existing medical conditions, and all conditions will be considered.

Travelling without Medical Insurance

We understand that holidays are times to take a step back from daily life and for you to enter full relaxation mode. Unfortunately, sometimes accidents or unforeseen scenarios arise where you may require medical attention. Unlike European countries with the EHIC, the United States has no such nationalised health care plan for visitors. As a result, health care is incredibly expensive for both nationals and tourists alike. For more information on the associated risks of travelling uninsured, check out our page cost of travelling uninsured page.

What if I need to travel with medication?

If you know you're going to need medication for your trip, it's worth checking out our travelling with medication page full of helpful tips and advice.

Protect your valuables with gadget cover

If you are concerned about your electronic devices breaking, being lost, or stolen, it might be an idea to take out gadget cover to insure your devices.
