If you are a frequent traveler, who makes multiple trips overseas, buying a single trip plan would not be a good option. Buying insurance each time you go on a trip is a hassle, besides being expensive. However, the best solution here is a multi trip insurance plan, which offers you coverage for an unlimited number of trips anywhere in the world within a year.
Multi-Trip Medical plans offer benefits similar to single-trip medical plans but extend coverage for up to a year for multiple trips. Thus with multi trip insurance, you don't need to buy the insurance every time you go on a trip
Advantages and Disadvantages of Multi Trip Travel Insurance
It is good to buy a multi trip plan, if you know you have to take more than two trips in a year . With a multi trip policy people don't have to worry about sorting out a new plan every time they take a last minute break or go away at short notice. As long as they meet the terms and conditions of their policy they have insurance protection for the entire year.
This kind of policy might not be appropriate for you if you take different types of holidays over the course of a year.
Also, multi trip policies are usually restricted to a few number of days. If you plan to take longer trips, you may need to pay extra to buy more days to extend their coverage. This could eat into any cost savings they initially made. In some cases, it may be better to opt for a single trip option instead of multi trip.
