Travelling without Insurance

We understand completely that holidays are times to take a step back from the daily grind of normal working life and for you to enter full relaxation mode. Unfortunately, sometimes accidents or unforeseen scenarios arise where you require medical attention. Unlike European countries with the EHIC, the United States has no such nationalised health care plan for visitors, and as a result health care is incredibly expensive — for nationals and tourists alike — if you haven't taken out holiday insurance.

Single Trip or Annual Multi-Trip?

Taking out a Single Trip policy or an Annual Multi-Trip policy can be a big deciding point. If you're planning on more than one holiday a year, then taking out an Annual policy might be in your better interest. Here's a table below weighing up the similarities and differences. For more information, check out our comparison page: Single vs. Annual Trip.

Single Trip Policies
Annual Multi-Trip Policies
Your trip can last up to 365 days but must start and end in the UK to be entirely valid Maximum trip duration varies depending on the policy: 22 days for Bronze, 31 days for Silver and Gold, 45 days for Platinum
Must be purchased before leaving the UK, i.e. before passing through security at the airport. Groups can benefit from an annual policy that does not require them to travel together, nor live together — that's just for family policies!
Anyone any age can travel — even under 18s can travel alone Under 18s must travel with an adult and you cannot travel on the policy if you are older than 79 years at the date of booking
