Summer Holiday - Single Trip Travel Insurance

In the past the most exotic destination on most Brits agenda was sunny Spain. Nowadays, you have a far wider range of options.

Close to Home

More people than ever before are reducing their carbon footprint and taking their summer holidays in the UK. Camping, caravanning and holiday cottage rental are all experiencing a boom - what could be better than retreating to an idyllic country cottage for the weekend or spending the week getting back to nature with the kids?

Exotic Shores

For those looking to soak up some sun on their summer holidays, distant exotic shores are the answer. But you don't have to spend your entire summer lazing on a beach - why not head off on an activity break?

Popular with the 20-40 age group, the opportunities are endless, from volunteering at a school in China to bar work. If that all sounds a little bit too much like hard work, you could always take part in extreme sports or other activities - from bungee jumping to surfing in Australia, there's plenty of activities to tempt you on foreign shores.

If you're only traveling to one destination, remember to take out a single trip travel insurance policy no matter where you're heading - you'll need medical cover in case of accident or illness whilst abroad and ideally baggage cover as well as cancellation cover too, just in case your travel plans are cancelled or curtailed.

A Taste of Europe

Heading to Europe for your summer break gives you the opportunity to choose between a city break, a beach holiday or a trip to the countryside.

From the rolling fields and vineyards of the south of France to the sun-drenched beaches and delicious mezes of Greece, there's something to suit everyone in Europe.

City breaks in Paris and Rome are a popular choice, or why not head to one of the up and coming cities that are making their mark as holiday hotspots? Riga, Dubrovnik and Prague are three eastern European cities which have become popular in recent years.

Each has its own sights and culture but all share beautiful historic buildings and a warm welcome for visitors.

With the weather in the UK finally getting hotter, you might be considering spending your summer break at home soaking up the rays in your garden.

But even just a weekend break with your other half or the whole family can provide a much needed change of scenery, ensuring you return refreshed and ready to get back to work.
