Couples Travel Insurance

The thought of a medical emergency or the theft of your luggage or credit cards is probably not something you want to consider when planning your holiday together. Yet as even the most minor mishap could cause you severe inconvenience and hassle, travel insurance for your trip should be top of your check list.

Whether it’s a romantic weekend away, time relaxing on a tropical beach or even your honeymoon, book a holiday for two with the peace of mind that you and your partner bought your Travel Insurance from American Express®.

American Express offers a range of different options to make your policy as individual as your holiday together. We offer European (including UK) or Worldwide cover on a single-trip, annual, or gap/backpacker basis (if you’re travelling for an extended period of time). We also have additional options so whatever you want to experience, from scuba diving to snowboarding we have you covered.

Our Select and Prestige Travel Insurance policies allow independent travel, should you or your partner also need to travel without one another. These options also include baggage cover of up to £2,500, although you may want to consider additional insurance for wedding and engagement rings should you be jetting off on your honeymoon.
