Valentine's Day is a special time for couples to show their love and appreciation for one another. It's also an incredibly envious way for couples to make their friends jealous on social apps by showing off that they've been planning a romantic getaway. Whether that's a couple booking a cosy cabin in the mountains or a last-minute beach holiday, a little last-minute valentine's break can be a thrill!
When it comes to planning a romantic getaway, there are a few key things to keep in mind. While booking the perfect accommodation might be the first thing on your mind, and you're twenty tabs deep on your phone trying to find romantic spots for dinner, there is one little bitty thing that we highly recommend you don't overlook: single trip cover!
The ideal Valentine's gift? Surely not!
While opening a Valentine's card to read you're getting single trip cover might not be the Valentine's gift you were expecting, with AA single trip insurance, you can have peace of mind knowing that you're covered in case of unexpected events; the kinds of events that quickly turn a potentially romantic break into one full of headaches (and potential bickering!).
Knowing the types of Valentine's hurdles you can encounter
The last thing you want to see on the departure board or get a notification pinging your phone. All is not lost when cancellations happen, as The AA can provide cover up to €6,000.
You both get there ok; your bags don't
Packed your fancy clothes for what you think will be an incredibly romantic date? Maybe even going somewhere you can dine al fresco in the evening? Bit of a shame if your luggage gets lost and won't make it on time. With single trip cover, you're sorted up to €350 for delayed baggage (after 12 hours)
Whether you're an adventurous couple who can't go a weekend without an adrenaline-fuelled activity, you're doing a romantic ski weekend, or someone slips and falls by the pool, impending ER visits for any kind of medical emergency shouldn't have to turn a valentine's break into one with medical bills.
If there was one reason to get cover, this is it. Some of our customers are able to get cover as low as €9* when they need single trip cover. What's more romantic than telling a loved one you've snagged a deal on insurance for a trip?
A romantic drive, is it?
For those who won't be jetting off but will be loading up the car for a romantic road trip around the country, or across the water, AA roadside assistance can help avoid you spending a good chunk of Valentine's weekend stuck by the roadside.
And if you're venturing out with a swanky new EV car for the first big trip, think of opting for AA electric vehicle insurance, which has you covered for personal belongings too – something to consider if you're staying a holiday rental or campsite over Valentines!
