What is annual multi trip travel insurance?
Who is annual travel insurance suitable for?
Whether you are a solo traveller or a couple, annual cover can be the cheapest option when it comes to making sure you are covered to travel more than three times each year.
If you plan to travel with a group or with your family you may find that it is more cost effective to purchase a group travel insurance policy or family cover and this is worth investigating before you proceed to purchase annual multi trip cover.
Likewise, if you plan to take a year out to travel the globe then it may be worth investigating a backpackers policy as this is designed to cover you to travel to a variety of destinations for a longer duration.
What does multi trip travel insurance cover?
The level of cover you receive can vary a great deal from insurer to insurer but the average annual travel insurance policy should at least include:
- Medical cover
- Cancellation and delay cover
- Loss of baggage cover
Other covers included in a comprehensive annual multi trip policy could include: cover for valuables and holiday money, scheduled airline failure insurance, personal accident/personal liability cover and legal expenses cover.
As a good rule of thumb, you should aim to have the following amounts in each area of cover:
- Medical cover in the region of £2million (double this if travelling to the USA). This should also cover the cost of emergency repatriation.
- Personal liability cover amounting to around £1 million.
- Cancellation cover of equal value to your holiday (including the cost of prepaid excursions). Cover is usually on a per person basis so to cover a £2,000 holiday you’d need cover of £1,000 each as a minimum.
- Baggage and personal possessions cover to cover the cost of replacing your suitcase and contents should it be lost or stolen. You should also consider the cost of single items such as your digital camera or laptop and factor this into the cover level you require (it is commonplace for insurers to apply a cap to the amount you can claim for on any one item so read the terms and conditions of your policy carefully).
- Holiday spending money cover of around £500 or equal to the value of the cash you will be taking with you.
What about the EHIC, do I need one of those?
The European Health Insurance Card or EHIC is designed to ensure that you will receive free or reduced cost emergency medical treatment in any of the EU member countries – plus Switzerland – and is available for those aged 16 and over free of charge.
It is a good idea to apply for one if you will be travelling within Europe as you will be asked for this first in the event of you needing healthcare whilst on holiday.
It is important to remember that the EHIC does not fully cover the cost of your medical treatment and will not entitle you to free or reduced price private treatment. It will also not cover the cost of emergency repatriation to the UK, so it is always wise to have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place.
How many days can I travel for?
Annual travel insurance is designed to cover those travelling three or more times a year and it is common for the cover period to be limited to around 31 days of consecutive travel per trip. The number of trips per year will more often than not be unlimited as long as you return within the number of days specified by the insurer.
You may however find that some insurers offer extended periods of travel up to 60 days and over but this could be at an additional cost.
How to find the best price for annual multi trip travel insurance?
When taking out an annual multi trip travel insurance policy it’s important to make sure you’re sufficiently covered, without paying over the odds for cover. You can reduce the amount you pay for cover by cutting out optional extras, opting out of gadget cover (if you’re already covered by other insurance policies) and comparing quotes from a range of insurers.
