Taking out comprehensive travel insurance for Jersey can make the trip all the more enjoyable, as you can rest assured, safe in the knowledge that you're protected against cancellations, medical emergency costs and lost personal possessions.

Do I need travel insurance to Jersey?

Despite being a British Crown dependency and having close links with the UK, the Island of Jersey is officially self-governing with it's own separate legal and healthcare systems. As such, having adequate travel insurance in place is desireable for UK citizens travelling to Jersey.

While a Reciprocal Health Agreement does exist between Jersey and the UK (which in some instances can mean exemption from certain emergency medical costs) this is no replacement for comprehensive travel insurance with medical cover, as you could still be liable to pay hefty medical charges.

Annual travel insurance

If you're planning a few trips during the course of the year, then it may be worth considering an annual multi-trip policy. With an annual multi-trip policy you are covered for an unlimited number of trips abroad, provided each trip includes a minium of one over night stay, and does not exceed the maximum trip duration limit.**

An annual multi-trip policy could potentially save you both time and money as you'll only need to book and pay once for your travel insurance policy.
