What is an Annual Multi-Trip Policy?
With an annual multi-trip policy, you can travel as many times as you want within 12 months, as long as your trips start and end in your home country. When you buy your annual multi-trip policy you choose the region you’ll be travelling to rather than the individual countries.
This could be Europe or Worldwide depending on how far afield you plan to travel, and gives you the flexibility to choose to travel to any countries within that region that are currently safe to travel with regards to COVID-19.
