Questions about annual travel insurance

 

What's the age limit for annual cover?

We can offer annual policies for travellers aged up to (and including) 79 years old. Find out more about our annual policies.

What is the maximum individual trip length on your annual policies?

With our annual policies you can travel as many times as you like in the year. If you are aged 75 or below you can choose from two different annual policies. The first allows you to travel for up to 31 days per trip, the second allows you to travel for up to 62 days per trip. If you are aged between 76 and 79 our annual policies allow you to travel for up to 31 days per trip. Find out more about our annual policies.

Can named travellers on an annual policy travel separately?

Absolutely. As long as they are aged 18 or over, any traveller named on the annual policy will be covered for a whole year of travel – whether they are travelling alone, with other people named on the policy or with a separate group.

Are children who are named on an annual policy covered to travel alone?

No. We can only insure people who are aged 18 and over for solo travel.

If I purchase an annual policy today, when will I be covered from?

Your cover becomes active from the start date you specified when completing your quote. This includes the cancellation portion of your policy. So if you have any holidays that are already booked, you may wish to bring the start date of your policy forward to make sure you are protected if something unexpected forces you to cancel your holiday between now and the start date of your policy. Your policy start date will be marked on your policy documents. You can bring it forward by calling our customer service team on 0345 90 80 161.

What choices do I have when selecting a policy?

Every holiday is different. We have six basic policies – ranging from Economy to Exclusive – that give you the freedom to choose the level of cover that's right for you, your budget and your travel plans. You can further personalise your policy with our range of optional extras – such as cruise cover, gadget cover and an excess waiver. Your policy, your way. Our three most popular policies are available online and you can start a new quote here. If you would like more options, call us on 0345 90 80 161 to discuss our full range of cover.

Can I get a quote online?

Absolutely, it's easy. The simple step-by-step process takes just a few minutes to complete. Get started here. Alternatively feel free to call us on 0345 90 80 161.
