What are my cover options with Fortify Insurance?
Fortify Travel Insurance offers several different travel insurance policies. These policies are listed below with a selection of their features.
Whether you’re going on your summer holiday, or a romantic city break, having insurance is a must. A single trip policy is perfect for a one-off holiday, and has all the cover you’ll need. Fortify’s single trip policies include:
You must be under the age of 85
You are permitted to travel for 100 days up to the age of 75, and 31 days over the age of 76
Medical expenses are covered up to £25 million
Additional cover available for travel disruption
Trip cancellation covered up to £10,000 per person
If you know you are going to be going away more than once this year, an annual trip policy may be a way to save both time and money. With this policy, you will be covered for multiple holidays, and you won’t have to worry about taking out a policy each time you go away. Fortify’s annual trip policies include:
You have to be under the age of 85
Any amount of trips are permitted, but they cannot exceed 50 days per trip if you are under the age of 65, and 35 days up to the age of 85

You have to be under the age of 39
Policies can last up to 546 days
