Whether you’re going for a romantic weekend or a business trip overseas, it’s important you get travel insurance for your city break to give you peace of mind.
City break travel insurance ensures you have financial protection against potential problems such as medical care costs and theft while you’re away. If you know you’re going to take only one break in the next 12 months that will last no longer than 31 days, you could get single trip travel insurance. If you plan to visit a few cities in the space of a year, it might be more cost-effective to get a multi-trip policy lasting for 12 months – that way, you won’t have to arrange a new policy for every trip.

They’ll give you advice on what additional private treatment might be covered by your policy. **UK residents can use an EHIC card during the Brexit negotiations and until the UK leaves the EU. The UK Government has proposed a similar scheme to the EHIC in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. However, this is subject to EU countries agreeing to that proposal.
If you’re going on a city break in Europe, then European travel insurance could cost from £5 for a single trip policy or £8 for a multi-trip policy, based on Compare the Market data in February 2019.
