Single Trip Insurance vs. Annual Travel Insurance

Some fly south for the winter and back, just one big trip a year. Others are jet setters, taking many business and pleasure trips. There are travel insurance plans built for all types of travelers, including a range of single trip plans that are exactly what they sound like. They cover just one trip. Then there are annual travel plans, which are multi-trip plans designed for frequent travelers.

Annual plans offer cost savings when you compare their bottom line against buying several single trip plans. Additionally, booking a plan once and having benefits all year makes for one less thing to check off your trip planning list, and there are fewer confirmation numbers to track.

But you don’t need to be zigzagging around the globe for it to make sense to purchase one. Taking just a handful of trips each year makes it a better deal to select one annual plan versus several single trip plans. Before selecting a single trip plan, consider the trips you haven’t penciled in yet, unexpected escapes, and last-minute trips that would be included under an annual travel insurance plan.
