Travel insurance is getting cheaper!

The sun has got its hat on for the summer; the World Cup and Wimbledon are over and many of us will soon be off on a well-deserved break.

As we often say, you should always take out travel insurance to cover your trip and the good news is that travel insurance is getting cheaper!

Technology, the growth of the web, better claims management and increased competition have thankfully meant travel insurance policies have come down in price over the last few years.

Compared to two years ago, the average premium for a Flexicover Direct policy has dropped by more than 10% for a Single Trip policy to Europe. The average cost in 2008 was £9.83 and today you can purchase the same cover for just £8.78 when you register online for our free newsletter and free monthly holiday prize draw.

Single Trip or Annual Multi Trip?
Along with the price and level of cover, the next decision is between a single trip and an annual multi trip policy. Savings for annual policies are now even bigger – up to 23% cheaper than 2008.

If you plan to travel more than twice a year, you're almost certainly better off with an annual policy. If your holiday plans include any skiing or travel to North America (or both!), the savings are even greater.

Please bear in mind that the standard duration for many Annual policies is 31 to 45 days for any one trip in the year. At Flexicover Direct, however, we offer 50 days as standard, with an option to extend to 100 days for those under 65 years of age. After all, we want you to make the most of your holiday!

Doubling Up?
If you are travelling as a couple, a Flexicover Direct policy not only offers you a saving of up to 25% but our policies will also allow the two of you to travel independently.

Flexicover couple rates are available to any 2 close relatives (see below for our list of close relatives) living at the same address. Each insurer will have their own definition of a 'couple', so please check you are eligible to make a saving!

At Flexicover Direct we aim to provide the right travel insurance cover for you and your party and are committed to providing the highest level of service to ensure you are safe and secure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
