Preferential Direct has launched an annual multi-trip travel insurance that lets travellers choose a maximum duration for each trip.

Travellers with the new cover can choose from 17, 31, 60 or 93-day excursion periods.

In addition, customers receive access to advice on visas, passports, innoculations, worldwide events and accommodation. There is also an emergency medical helpline.

The basic price for the new cover is £45 per person but it includes better levels of cover than previously, such as medical expenses increased from £5m to £10m and personal accident benefit up from £25,000 to £50,000.

Preferential has also included cover for travel within the UK and 17 days of free winter sports cover.
