So how does a single trip travel insurance policy work?

If you are only planning on taking one single trip 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 travel insurance policies.

Other than providing great value policies, our main aim at Columbus Direct is to ensure you are properly protected when you jet away on your travels. Our travel insurance for single trip can take you to the mountains of Europe, plains of Africa or exploring the cities of Asia. The world really is your oyster, so get booking and start exploring – who knows where it’ll take you…
