Annual travel insurance
Specialist travel insurance for unlimited trips within any 12 month period
At Free Spirit, we aim to provide specialist travel insurance for people with any medical conditions, of any age, and for nearly any type of trip. If you are planning on travelling more than once in a year, you could save money through our annual travel insurance for existing medical conditions.
You can enjoy unlimited trips within a 12 month period (subject to trip limits – see below) knowing that you have annual travel insurance tailored to your condition or disability. Although of course, we will need to know if anything related to your health should change during the year.
If you intend on travelling during the coronavirus pandemic, you are covered if you need medical attention for COVID-19 while abroad. Read about our coronavirus travel insurance.
Our ‘Super Duper’ level of cover is rated 5 Star by Defaqto which means that it has been independently verified to provide one of the highest quality offerings in the market.
With our annual holiday insurance, you can travel for a maximum of 31 days per trip if you choose Super cover or 45 days per trip if you select Super Duper cover.
What’s more, our annual multi-trip travel insurance enables you to travel as many times as you like in a 12 month period as long as you don’t exceed the maximum trip limit and you return home before starting your next holiday.
Both cover levels of our annual travel insurance provide a wide range of cover benefits, which include ensuring you get the right emergency medical care for your medical condition or disability if you need it.

Annual travel insurance FAQs
1. What is annual travel insurance?
Free Spirit annual travel insurance is designed to cover more than one trip within a 12 month period. In fact, with an annual holiday insurance policy in place, you can take as many holidays as you like over the year, provided you come home in between each trip and that none of your trips are longer than the maximum trip limit (31 days with Super cover, 45 days with Super Duper cover).
2. Why buy an annual travel insurance policy?
It’s possible to take out separate single trip insurance policies for each trip you take over the course of a year, but you may be able to save money on your travel insurance with an annual multi-trip policy. So, if you know you’ll be travelling more than once in the next 12 months and where you plan to go, it may be worth taking out annual holiday insurance.
3. Are there any other benefits of an annual travel insurance policy?
As well as the reasons to choose our annual travel insurance listed above, having annual holiday insurance means that you are also covered for any last-minute trips you decide to take, subject to trip limits.

There is no upper age limit.
5. How many times can I travel and how long can each trip be?

Specialist travel insurance cover for a single trip
If you have just one trip planned, or one that’s longer than the maximum trip duration with our annual holiday insurance, a single trip policy may be more suitable for you.
