Avanti is an award-winning specialist travel insurer founded in 2009. In this guide, we’ve looked at what Avanti’s travel insurance includes and the pros and cons of cover.

What types of policies are on offer?

Avanti offers three types of cover:

  • Single trip. You’ll be covered for one trip overseas.
  • Annual multi-trip cover. A year’s worth of cover for unlimited trips, for up to 50 days per trip (if you’re under 70) and up to 183 days per year.
  • Long-stay holiday insurance. Cover for up to 550 days (for 65 and under) or up to 366 days (for over 65).

Cover limits

There are three levels of cover offered by Avanti:

  • Essentials. You’ll be protected for up to £5,000,000 for medical expenses, £1,000 worth for personal belongings and £1,000 for holiday cancellations.
  • Classic. You’ll be protected for up to £10,000,000 for medical expenses, £2,000 worth for personal belongings and £5,000 for holiday cancellations.
  • Deluxe. You’ll be offered unlimited protection for medical expenses, £3,000 worth for personal belongings and £7,500 for holiday cancellations.
