Which Travel Insurance Plan To Choose?

An annual travel insurance plan starts on the date chosen by the insured and lasts for 365 days, regardless of the number of journeys, as opposed to a single trip coverage that starts the day you depart your home country and ends the day you return. Both insurance plans offer protection against unforeseen medical costs, travel interruption, and lost luggage or passports. So now the deciding factor should be the number of trips you wish to take in a year and also the duration of the same. So if you are someone who takes only a few trips every year with family or solo, you can go for single trip travel insurance. If you wish to visit more than once every year and accordingly is the duration, you must go for a multi trip insurance plan.
