3 Clear Advantages of Purchasing Annual Travel Insurance
Posted: Jul 23, 2014
Every year thousands of holidaymakers book annual travel insurance to cover them while they are away on holiday. There are plenty of advantages to getting this kind of policy, and we’ve highlighted three of the best ones below.
It’s cheaper for multiple trips
If you know you will be going away for more than one break during the next 12 months, you should definitely think about getting annual travel insurance. The bonus is it covers every trip you make during that period, so it works out a lot cheaper in most cases than getting an individual policy every time you decide to go away. Some lucky people do enjoy more than one trip in a single year, and if this includes you, you should definitely compare policies to see if you will save with this type.
One policy covers you for the whole year so there’s no need to rebook
Let’s face it, booking cover of any kind wouldn’t come top of anyone’s list of fun things to do. While booking travel cover doesn’t take long and it provides a huge amount of peace of mind, you will still have to go through the process of making sure you get the right policy for you. The good news is that with an annual travel Insurance policy you'll only need to do this once for the entire year. Then every time you go away – whether it is for a long summer holiday or a short business trip – you know you already have your cover in place. This ticks one thing off your list of things to do before you go away – and that has to be a great benefit doesn’t it?
Works for short breaks too
If you get a single trip policy it covers just one holiday; this, of course, means that if you decide to book another short break at any point you’ll have to buy another policy. With annual travel insurance you can rest assured even a short weekend break to Paris is covered under the terms, so you can make the most of it all year round.
As you can see there is a lot to think about and you'll probably find other benefits to getting this sort of policy over the single trip kind when you start looking into it further. However, we think these are the three most important benefits – the ones you will definitely notice both at the time of booking and for the duration of the 12-month period it is valid for.
Everyone wants to get the best price for any service or type of cover they book. Getting a great deal is just one advantage, as you’ve seen here, but there are lots of others to enjoy as well.
