Lesbian, gay, and unmarried couples can enjoy a romantic Valentine's Day trip abroad, using the same travel policy available from Preferential.

The insurer has made its worldwide and European annual multi-trip available to all couples who live at the same address.

"It doesn't matter at all whether couples taking out our travel insurance are of the same sex or not," said managing director Steve Nickerson.

"Now is the time of year that people are taking their partners away and planning holidays.

"It is important to ensure you are both insured throughout the year - whether you are skiing in Italy, sunning yourselves in Ibiza or even travelling independently elsewhere."
