What is single trip travel insurance?

If you are taking a one-off holiday or business trip, single trip travel insurance is an affordable way to get essential coverage for holiday troubles like lost bags, strikes, flight delays and more. If you are travelling once or twice per year, single trip cover can be a cost effective solution when it comes to making sure you are covered for a variety of eventualities. Many travel insurance providers will give you the option of single trip cover that lasts up to 45 days.

Single trip travel insurance tips – get the best rates for you

  • It's important that you state any pre-existing medical conditions that you or your travel party may have
  • Single-trip policies usually state a maximum number of days that count as one trip, but a backpacker policy could cover you for longer trips
  • Check your policy carefully for exclusions and excess charges before you travel
  • If you're planning to make more than two trips in a year, you could find multi-trip travel insurance or annual travel insurance works out more cheaply than taking out separate single trip travel insurance policies
