Travel insurance Travel insurance for couples

The table below show the best travel insurance policies for a couple. Single Trip (7 day trip to Europe for a 45-year-old couple, a 60-year-old couple and a 75-year-old couple). Annual Multi trip (worldwide for a 45-year-old couple, a 60-year-old couple and a 75-year-old couple).

Some insurers offer a discount when buying a joint policy. Below, we have provided the individual premium so you're able to see where an insurer applies a discount.

Which? Best Rate travel insurance

Which? Best Rate travel insurance policies provide the cheapest cover that meets stringent criteria. All of our Best Rates include at least £2m of medical cover for Europe and £5m worldwide, £1,500 of cover for baggage and personal belongings and £3,000 for cancellation or curtailment.

We have also analysed the 22 most important elements of your travel insurance policy to see which providers offer the best all-round cover. Along with the standard features, we've assessed insurers for their policy on missed departures, delays, holiday and airline failure, terrorism cover and volcanic ash. Insurers that have a policy score of less than 65% are not included in the table.

It is worth noting that policy details can change depending on where you buy the cover. If you go through a comparison site, for instance, it is possible that there may be age restrictions on cover. Likewise if you apply for winter sports cover. So always check the terms and conditions provided via an intermediary against your requirements and if there is a difference, buy direct from the provider. If there is a premium difference insurers may well price match the quote you received elsewhere.
