Whether it’s for business or for pleasure, international travel can sometimes take a lot of planning. The good news? Frequent travellers can save time and money with multi-trip travel insurance that they only need to buy once a year.
Our Annual Frequent Traveller policy provides comprehensive cover for an unlimited number of journeys overseas, each up to 90 days long, over a period of 12 months*.
So if you’re planning to go on several trips this year, you could buy just one policy to get cover for a year’s worth of adventure.
What does our Annual Frequent Traveller policy cover?
Our Annual Frequent Traveller (multi-trip) policy offers the same comprehensive benefits as our single journey policy. The Annual Frequent Traveller policy covers you for:
- Unlimited medical and evacuation expenses
- Travel delay cover
- Cancellation fees and lost deposits
- Personal belongings that are lost, stolen or damaged
- Rental vehicle excess
- Emergency dental cover
When you protect yourself with an Annual Frequent Traveller policy or a single journey policy, you also gain access to our worldwide emergency assistance team, who are there to offer round-the-clock advice, 24 hours a day, seven days a week*.

Tips for frequent travellers
Whether it’s a certain spot in the airport where you can unwind between flights, or a theft-proof backpack, simple things can remove the stress of travelling.
Here are three simple tips for frequent travellers:
1. Focus on your health
With long haul flights, jet lag, changes in climate and high stress levels, it’s no surprise that travelling can take a toll on your health.
Always focus on your health while travelling, which may mean skipping the airport bar and getting an early night the day before you fly. Stay hydrated and bring healthy snacks on board the plane. But remember, buy these when on the other side of the customs check, otherwise they’ll be confiscated.
2. Beat the queues
Most travellers will automatically flock to the shortest line at customs or immigration. However, you may be better off looking at the speed of the employee rather than the length of the line.
Be smart about picking the time and date of your travel. A quick online search will help you find out when the peak travel times are for the airports you’ll be passing through, so you know what days and times of the week to avoid.
3. Check the departure zone for taxis
If you get to the arrivals gate and find a taxi queue 500 people long, it might be worth heading to departures instead (if it’s close by). The departures area will be rich in empty taxis, whose passengers have just left to enter the airport.
