|Many people don’t know this, so perhaps I’m letting you into a 'secret' – annual travel insurance can cover your excursions not only abroad, but also within the U.K. This is perhaps worth bearing in mind if you are getting ready to head off to that Stag and Hen Party mecca, Leeds, and you think that things might get a little messy...
Most of us try and get away for bit of sun abroad as often as we can – and for many this means an annual trip to some blue skies and white sands. As the foreign office advise, and many people commonly know, it is essential to take out travel insurance when venturing abroad. Uninsured holiday makers often face unexpected bills when a holiday mishap occurs, and these can be hefty – it can cost between £35,000 - £45,000 for an air ambulance back to the U.K. from the East Coast of the USA, for example.
To cover this eventuality, many of us take out single trip holiday insurance when we are planning our annual break – and this makes sense, to insure against not only unexpected medical problems, but holiday and flight cancellations. However, if you are going to travel anywhere more than once in a year – including perhaps to that big crazy stag weekend in Leeds – it often makes far more financial sense to take out an Annual Travel Insurance policy.
Some of the big insurance providers like AA Travel Insurance offer great packages – and your trip can last as long as 45 days. Unless you are a rich tax exile, this is going to cover just about anything!
In fact, knowing that all of your annual trips are covered – both abroad and within the U.K. – can bring some welcome peace of mind; and this can be achieved relatively hassle free with just one application. Take a look at the AA website to find out more about annual travel insurance.
