Single trip insurance is ideal for people who like to travel infrequently. Although it is easy to put travel insurance to the back of your mind once you have paid for your holiday, it is important to remember that you need to be covered (before you travel) in case anything should happen, and you may need to cancel. Some people will take the ‘it won’t happen to me’ attitude, but unfortunately, that is not true of everyone who travels. This is where your travel insurance comes in – everyone considers the cover for medical emergencies, but you should not forget that single trip insurance also covers occurrences such as lost luggage, delays and even cancellations.

Unlike annual travel insurance policies, single trip insurance is only valid for the duration of your holidays and before those for cancellation purposes. When you take out your single trip policy, you can specify when you need it to begin and end. This means that you can book your single trip insurance months ahead of your break and look forward to your holiday without any worries.

Typically, your policy will run from the time you leave your home until you return, allowing you to relax right from the start of your journey. It would also cover you for cancellation purposes after your purchase till the beginning of your trip.
