If you’re craving a little sun (who isn’t? ) then you’re probably thinking about a getaway right about now.

Whether it’s a 'no carbs before Marbs’ situation, or you’ve got culture firmly on the itinerary - the last thing on your mind is probably going to be travel insurance.

So, before you get knee high in suncream, let us tell you about how you can bag yourself overseas medical insurance for as little as £1 or €1 per day!

It’s so simple, you could even activate it while you’re on the way to the airport, or forget about it all together and let the tech work it’s magic. 😎


I’m all ears. How does Pay-per-Day Travel Insurance work? 🤔

We use geolocation technology to pinpoint exactly where you are in the world, so that your travel insurance will automatically kick in - and we’ll make sure you only pay for the days that you’re actually on holiday.

The app will even spot when you’re near a ski resort and offer you winter sports cover - so that’s skiing and snowboarding sorted. Pretty clever stuff right?

All you need to do is make sure you have your location services turned on so that we know you’re jetting off and be sure to connect to the internet (mobile of wifi) when you get to your destination and within 24 hours of leaving your home country.

But if you need a more in-depth overview, here’s exactly how our travel insurance works.


Did you know, the most visited destinations that Revolut users went to were the US, Spain, France, Italy and Germany? 🌎

Interestingly, most of our 100k plus insurance holders prefer shorter trips of around 4 days - which makes sense given the fact that we enjoy a fair few bank holidays. From city breaks to exotic beaches - we’ve got you covered, virtually anywhere in the world.

The best part is, our insurance policy has an annual price cap, which means that no matter how much you travel during the year, you won’t overspend for your cover.

But if you know you’re going to be travelling a lot, then you could opt into a yearly policy at a fixed annual price of just £30.

Like what you hear and want to get travel insurance for your next getaway? We can cover almost all Revolut users, except for Swiss residents, but we’re actively working to extend our service to the entire Revolut community.

Please refer to our T&Cs for a full break down of restrictions, such as the age of travellers and the trip duration.
