Single trip or multi trip European cover?

Single trip travel cover can be a great initial cost saver when you know that you will be going on just 1 trip over the next 12 months. If you are a more frequent European traveller and find yourself constantly buying last minute travel insurance before you fly, you may be surprised by the amount of money you can save with multi-trip European travel insurance.


Our Single Trip policy can cover you up to 90 days. You must know your departure and return date to purchase cover and the premium is based on the the length of your trip.

Our European annual policy will cover you for an unlimited number of trips over the next 12 months providing you are not over 65 years of age. Each trip can be up to a maximum of 22 days with Silver cover (maximum of 32 days with Platinum and Diamond cover).

Backpackers going to Europe can purchase Backpacker & Longstay cover for up to 18 months. You must not be over 55 years of age. Perfect for working abroad, gap years or an extended trip.

Note: 24/7 winter sports policies differ to those duration above. Please view the winter sports page for more information.

Planning your holiday to Europe

Whether you are flying tomorrow or pre planning a European break for next year, there are lots of ways to make the most of your trip. Why don’t you:

  • Look for city guides in the book shop?
  • Browse through forums for hints and tips from travellers who have already been to your destination?

  • Pop in to your local travel agents for information and advice?

Do EHICs mean I am covered for European travel insurance?


The European Health Insurance Card (or EHIC) is not a replacement for specialist or comprehensive travel insurance.  Whilst an EHIC can enable you to receive lower cost and sometimes free medical cover within Europe this is only applicable to state provided treatment and is not likely to cover everything that you would expect to get within the UK through the NHS.

You are also likely, in many situations, going to have to contribute towards the costs of any medical treatment and associated costs.

There are also a number of other situations covered within comprehensive travel insurance policies like damage, loss or theft of personal possessions, the cost of claiming including legal fees for any compensation and areas like your own legal liability should you accidentally cause injury to another person or damage to property (and many other circumstances).
