Travel Insurance News - Online Reporting February 2007


If you did not get your kids an annual for Christmas, nows the time to check out one that will keep them safe during the holidays you treat them to this year.

Leading online travel insurance specialist, Essential Travel ( , is offering an excellent annual cover price starting at just £39.99 for a family travelling to Europe and £46.99 for a family heading for a worldwide destination, including the USA and Canada.

Thanks to its children go free pricing strategy, this price remains the same regardless of the number of children travelling.

At this price, annual cover for the whole family costs less from Essential Travel than many high street providers and travel agents would charge to protect a family for one single trip.

The beauty of the annual policy is that it covers all your foreign trips taken during the course of a year, within the territorial limits you select, up to 45 days for each holiday. It will also cover your UK trips over 50 miles from home.

With many families taking a long summer holiday, supplemented with short breaks, or half term travels at other times of the year, an annual policy can save them money on their travel insurance costs.

Children can be particularly susceptible to accidents whilst abroad, with poolside slips and trips and stomach problems being particularly common occurrences. It makes sense to think ahead and purchase travel insurance that can help pick up the tab for medical treatment abroad.

Essential Travel also has annual multi trip policies for adults and couples. The price of cover for one adult aged up to 65 travelling to Europe starts at £27.99, whilst the price for worldwide travel is £39.99. A couple can buy an annual policy for Europe for £39.99 and for the USA for £46.99.

The over 65s are also catered for, with Essential Travel covering travellers up to the age of 74. The price of an annual policy for Europe for someone aged 66-74 is £69.99, whilst it costs £89.99 for worldwide travel.

With many retired people travelling abroad frequently, an annual policy makes perfect sense, preventing the need to splash out more than necessary by purchasing a single trip policy for each holiday. It also reduces the pre holiday list of things to do, as travel cover need only be purchased once a year, and means there is less risk of forgetting to buy travel insurance before departure.

Essential Travels Stuart Bensusan says: �We are providing our annual cover at prices that are very difficult for the rest of the market to match and enabling those who love travel to stay safe and have the peace of mind of travel insurance protection whilst abroad.

We believe our cover prices will make our annuals a best seller throughout 2007.
