Single Trip Travel Insurance

The Alpha Single Trip travel insurance is cover for the one-off trip, and can cater for individuals, couples, families or groups of friends.

Alpha Travel Insurance provides you with a fixed level of cover for complete peace of mind on your travels, we also have no upper age limit and children go free on family policies!

Premiums are based on the amount that you want to contribute to a claim (the policy excess) - the higher the chosen excess, the lower the premium you have to pay. You can choose £175, £150, £100, £75, £50 or £0 for excesses, from our appropriately titled Alpha175, Alpha150, Alpha100 etc. policies.

Our Single Trip travel insurance policies have some brilliant benefits:

Cover Levels

Cover Levels

£1,500 - Personal Possessions

Having cover for items such as your clothes, footwear, cosmetics, jewellery, luggage and electrical items is really important in a travel insurance policy. Airlines are notorious for damaging suitcases and sometimes they end up on a different plane altogether – not a great way to start your holiday! Alpha offers peace of mind should anything happen to your case or possessions.

£2,000 - Cancellation

From the moment you book your holiday to the night before you depart, there is a constant buzz of excitement and anticipation within you. However what would you do if you fell ill during this time and subsequently had to cancel your holiday? It’s not a nice thought; however travel insurance can help cover the additional cost of having to cancel your trip as well as reimbursing your holiday.

£10,000 - Legal Advice

Dealing with solicitors and legal jargon can be confusing for the majority of people, not to mention the added everyday stress that comes after a personal injury that happened whilst abroad. Alpha policies offer a free 30 minute consultation with a legal expert who can advise on the next steps as well as £10,000 of legal expenses.
