What is single-trip insurance?

Published 18th May 2023Read Time 5 min

If you don't take that many trips a year, perhaps an annual family holiday, but you still want cover, then perhaps single-trip insurance is for you. What is it? Well, the clue is really in the title here!

Single-trip insurance is a type of travel insurance that provides coverage for a specific trip, usually for a set period of time, such as a week or two.

Make sure that Travel Insurance is in your checklist.

It typically includes coverage for medical emergencies, trip cancellation or interruption, lost or stolen luggage, and other unforeseen events that may occur during the trip.

Single-trip insurance is purchased for one-time use and is designed to provide protection for the duration of the trip. AA Single Trip Travel Insurance also includes cover for COVID-19 so that you can enjoy your holiday without worry.
