We are often not aware of or make the most of what is available to do on our doorstep. If you are contemplating a getaway, but don’t enjoy travelling to the airport or the queues when you get there, you could make the most out of where you already are by exploring the United Kingdom for your holiday instead.

Every year, many tourists come to the UK to enjoy our beaches, small towns, large cities, and famous countryside. The UK offers so many different experiences in one place. From the mysterious Cornwall coves to the bustling capital of London, there are a world of opportunities available in the UK.

Hike through the Scottish Highlands, explore the rolling valleys of Wales, or do a Game of Thrones tour to see all the famous filming locations in Northern Ireland. The beauty of exploring your own country is that you often spend less on travelling costs, you don’t have to spend long hours waiting in the airport, and you can avoid expensive hire car costs if you have your own car.

You can still have an eventful holiday when exploring the UK. Many of the UK’s beaches are excellent for surfing and rivers throughout the country are perfect for a peaceful canoeing trip. Why not visit the Lake District to scramble Striding Edge? You could even complete the National Three Peak Challenge and climb the three highest peaks of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Snowdon in Wales, and Scafell Pike in England.

The United Kingdom is the perfect rural getaway, suitable for almost any trip you have your heart set on. Relax, explore, or go on an adventure in the United Kingdom.

Whatever you plan on doing in the UK, it’s important you get travel insurance when you are on a trip away from home. This will help to protect you against many unforeseen eventualities, especially if you plan on doing any adventurous activities.

Below is some more information about our products, for which Terms and Conditions apply. Please visit the policy information hub for full details.

It isn’t a legal requirement to take out travel insurance for any holiday you go on, and it is less widely considered a necessity when you are traveling within the UK. However, it is important to remember that wherever you go on holiday, whether that be at home or abroad, unforeseen circumstances can happen that require you spending money to fix.

Although we have the NHS to help to protect us with any medical needs or emergencies when we are on holiday in the UK, there are other things that you might benefit from having covered by a travel insurance policy. These include:

  • Cover for lost or stolen luggage
  • Travel delays
  • Cancellations

Not all trips in the UK will need cover, but it is worth thinking ahead about what you plan to do and the type of trip you are going on, to see if you will benefit from having cover should something go wrong.

This policy is designed for frequent travellers and can cover you and your family for a multitude of holidays. From romantic city breaks to fun-filled beach holidays, and more.
