So how does a single trip travel insurance policy work?

If you are only planning on taking one holiday or excursion during the entire year, then selecting a single trip travel policy can often be the cheapest route to getting insured. Cover can last as long as 365 days, equally, you can be insured for as little as one day, depending upon your travel plans. It really is that simple.

At Columbus Direct, we offer a huge variety of products for you to choose from, ensuring you remain fully protected, regardless of your adventures. We can even offer cover online for pre-existing medical conditions and cover for more senior travellers, with an upper age limit of 85 on all our single trip policies.

Other than providing great value travel insurance, our main aim at Columbus Direct is to ensure you are properly protected when you jet away on your travels. Perhaps your trip entails wandering the streets of Dubrovnik, arm in arm with your loved one, with a guidebook in your pocket, or sampling the gastronomic delights of Rome. Maybe you’re planning to dip your toe in the Pacific, build sandcastles with the kids or try riding a temperamental camel in Egypt. No matter what the adventure, our Single Trip Travel Insurance could work for you.
