Single Trip Travel Insurance

Our flexible Single Trip travel insurance range of policies offers cover for a one-off holiday, with a duration of up to three months. Rather than paying for year-round travel insurance, you only pay for the duration of your holiday, and you can tailor your policy to suit your individual needs.

Holidaysafe offers a range of cover from basic but essential levels of cover, to a more enhanced level of insurance, and all with competitive prices to match.

Cover Levels
Up to £7,500* Cancellation cover

This section of cover begins from the second you pay your premium when buying a single trip policy, and from the start date that you choose when purchasing a multi trip policy.  cancellation cover can step in to cover pre-paid costs, for things like accommodation, transport and car hire, that you cannot recover from any other source (e.g. your tour operator) in the event that you cannot go on your trip.  The section will cover cancellation for a number of reasons, but it is important that you read your policy wording for full details. (*Under our Premier Plus & Platinum Policies)

Up to £10,000,000* Medical Cover

Injury or illness are inconvenient at the best of times, but imagine needing emergency medical attention abroad – you may not be able to communicate with doctors, and will most likely have to pay for your treatment. This is where our medical expenses section can help you, as we will consider medical bills up to £10,000,000 on many policies, including the cost of getting you back to the UK if medically necessary. Furthermore, every Holidaysafe Policy comes with the access to our appointed  emergency assistance team, who are available to help you 24 hours a day, every day of the year (*Under our Premier, Premier Plus & Platinum Policies)

Up to £5,000* Personal Possessions Cover

Some of the most common and annoying holiday disasters involve personal possessions, such as lost, stolen, damaged or delayed baggage. These policy sections can step in to cover the costs of these disasters, but you must check the cover to ensure the policy limits are enough to cover the items you are taking abroad. (*Under our Platinum Policies)

Single Trip Information

Depending on your holiday arrangements this year, you may find our Single Trip travel insurance is ideal for those one-off trips such as your annual holiday or visiting friends and relatives. We have several types of single trip products, so you are sure to find one to suit your needs. To help you decide which is right for you, please take a look at the options listed below.

This policy offers good basic cover for a competitive price and is suitable for those of you who wish to have a basic level of protection without the high price tag. Our standard policy offers a range of benefits but with lower sums insured, ideal for the family package holiday.

For those of you that want the peace of mind of a higher level of protection, look no further than our Premier policy. This product offers higher sums insured.

Premier Plus
The Premier Plus policy offers all the cover you would expect from superior travel insurance. This policy has the same range of benefits as the Premier but with higher sums insured and £40 policy excess.

If you’re looking for our highest levels of cover, our brand new Premier Platinum Policy has been designed for people who want an exceptional level of protection whilst abroad for affordable prices. Premier Platinum offers our highest level of cover, whilst keeping competitive prices, and absolutely NO standard policy excess.


What is the age limit on Single Trip policies?
Our Single Trip policies have no upper age limits, so we can provide cover for anyone 80+ subject to medical screening and their destination of choice.

Do the sums insured benefit the whole group or each person?
The sums insured apply to each individual person covered by the policy.

What do you define as a medical condition?
Holidaysafe defines a Medical Condition as any serious or recurring medical condition which has been previously diagnosed, investigated or treated in any way, at any time prior to buying the insurance, even if this condition is currently considered to be stable and under control.

How long in advance can I quote/purchase Single Trip Travel Insurance?
Unfortunately, we cannot quote you for more than a year in advance. Please bear this in mind before contacting us as we don’t want to disappoint you. Just come back once your holiday is within the year time frame!
