Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We’re working really hard to keep you in the loop as much as possible in the fast-changing circumstances. 

We want to help you wherever we can during these challenging times. If you’re struggling financially as a result of Coronavirus and are worried about the payments for your policy, or if you have a policy that you don’t think you’ll need now, such as an annual travel policy, please get in touch. We’ll discuss your options with you and work out how we can provide support.

Our call centres are very busy at the moment and we are trying to answer your questions as quickly as we can. If your query is non-urgent and you are not due to travel in the next two weeks, please don’t contact us yet, so we can prioritise people in need of urgent help or who are due to travel sooner.

In the meantime, we are regularly monitoring the situation and updating our Coronavirus single trip/backpacker and annual multi-trip FAQ pages. To find out more about the impact the outbreak is having on our travel insurance policies, please check the relevant FAQ before calling or emailing us.

We’d also like to highlight that travel insurance only protects against unforeseen circumstances getting in the way of your travel plans, so any policy you buy now will have very limited insurance coverage. While the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have advised against all but essential travel indefinitely, you will not be covered under our travel insurance policies if you decide to go ahead with your trip. 

Single Trip Travel Insurance

From £3.73 *
If you’re heading on a holiday this year, then Single Trip travel insurance can help protect you if something goes wrong. You can be covered from the moment you purchase your holiday to the second you get back home. 

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

When you take out our Single Trip travel insurance policy, you’ll have the choice of three levels of cover: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Depending on which level of protection you pick, you’ll be covered for:
Cancelling or curtailing your trip
Emergency medical and associated expenses
Loss of passport*
Delayed personal possessions
Lost, stolen or damaged personal possessions*
Loss of personal money*
Personal accident cover
Missed departures
Delayed departures
Personal liability
Legal expenses
End-supplier failure**

*Not available with Bronze cover

**Only available with Gold cover

Terms and Conditions apply.

Depending on what fun activities you have planned, you can then choose to purchase additional cover. If you’re heading skiing, tobogganing or snowboarding, then our Winter Sports and Ski add-on offers an appropriate level of cover for most skiing holidays. Or, if you’re jetting off to play golf in the sunshine, our Golf cover can help protect you and your clubs.

If you’re boarding a ship and embarking on the cruise of a lifetime, our Cruise add-on can help protect you against risks that are unique to cruises, such as itinerary changes, cruise interruptions and cabin confinement. With our Single Trip travel insurance, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you can select the cover that best suits your needs.

Depending on how often you travel, you should decide between taking out a Single Trip or Annual insurance policy. Single Trip holiday insurance is the best form of cover if you only plan on going away once in the near future.

But if you’re thinking of going away twice or more in a calendar year, it may be worth choosing an Annual travel insurance policy. You’ll need insurance each time you go away, and it can be cheaper and less time consuming to take out one Annual policy, rather than multiple Single Trip policies.

When you take out Single Trip travel insurance, you can travel to multiple destinations, as long as your trip does not last longer than 180 days. Whether you’re looking for Single Trip worldwide travel insurance or Single Trip travel insurance for multiple countries in Europe, we have you covered. You can tailor our policies to suit your plans by selecting just the countries you are travelling to. 

Please note that you will not be covered if you travel to a country or region that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has advised against all travel or against all but essential travel. 

If you’re heading on holiday to Europe, Single Trip travel insurance is still important. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) gives you some basic medical cover, but you’ll need Single Trip holiday insurance too. Although your EHIC entitles you to either free or reduced medical costs (depending on how the health care system works in a particular country), it won’t cover you for everything. If you have to be treated in a private hospital or need to be flown back to the UK in an emergency, for example, you won’t be covered with an EHIC card.

If you fall ill and need to pay for any medical care whilst you’re away, it could cost you thousands of pounds. But, Single Trip travel insurance will help cover these costs. 

  • If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you can still be covered by our Single Trip or Backpacker policies. Sadly, you cannot take out an Annual policy if you have pre-existing medical conditions. To check whether we can cover your pre-existing medical condition on your Single Trip holiday insurance policy, get a quote today.

    When applying for travel insurance that covers pre-existing conditions, you’ll need to disclose details of your medical history. This includes recurring injuries or illnesses, on-going or lifelong conditions, previous surgeries and any conditions you are currently suffering from. You should also list any conditions that you successfully manage – and any that you don’t – just in case, to make sure we can cover you.
  • It is highly unlikely that we will pay any claim for medical expenses, cancellation or cutting short a trip if it relates to a medical condition that you have not told us about.
