Why choose an Annual Policy?
They're ideal if you travel frequently or spontaneously
Annual Multi Trip policies enable you to protect 12 months of unlimited trips in one transaction and can be purchased 5 weeks in advance of your first trip.
If you choose Europe as your destination in the quote form above, you are covered for multiple trips in and around Europe - this includes holiday cover in the UK.
Each trip can be a maximum of 45 days long (17 days if you add winter sports) and we cover any UK resident up to 74 years of age (65 if you’re doing winter sports).
Expert's Top Tip - If you travel often, an annual policy is likely to be far cheaper (and less hassle) than buying several single trip policies!
Only pay for the cover you need
You have the choice of 4 cover levels and 4 areas of cover to help you to customise the policy to suit your holiday. If you need to, you can also add extra protection for pre-existing medical conditions, sports, golf, cruises, winter sports, business and weddings.
Save an extra 10% on Airport Parking for 1 year
As an added bonus, you will also be entitled to an exclusive 10% discount on your Airport Parking for the duration of your policy!

Cheap. But not nasty!
I required travel insurance for my 13 year old daughters who are travelling unaccompanied to the USA later this year. Essential was one of the few companies I found that caters for that market and at a surprising low price. The cover is more than adequate although it has to be said that figures for the excess waivers were not so readily traceable. But got that I'd award it five stars. If we have to make a claim this review and the raring could go down as well as up.
