Ryanair Insurance

I purchased an outbound flight to Edinburgh and inbound flight to Malta separately with Ryanair. However, I only bought travel insurance with the outbound flight. Will this cover me for the whole duration of my trip (1 week long)?

Probably not,as I presume when purchasing you only stated Edinburgh and it was a one off insurance,not an annual,I suggest you contact Ryan air to check,see if you can change it,however it may be cheaper to go online and purchase a separate insurance for the second leg of your journey,because knowing Ryan air there will be charges for changing it.

You need travel insurance for all your holiday not just the flight. What happens for example if you are taken ill and need to be hospitalised? Who pays the bill? Never known travel insurance just to cover flight dates but obviously from your experience it does. Normally you are asked for an end date so check documents Ryanair have given you and adjust if needs be.

Travel insurance usually is for a set time such as a week or a fortnight etc.

Never come across a travel insurance for one journey.

There are plenty of travel insurance companies.

Perhaps best to have a chat with some of them.

Your flight insurance will only cover you for your flight and any flight related problems such as cancellation, lost luggage or flight related injury. Etc. It doesn't cover your holiday, for which separate holiday insurance is advised. My annual holiday insurance also covers cancellation and flight related problems, and therefore I never buy it from the airline when booking flights.

Well , you live and learn !

I have never come across flight only insurance as I always get travel insurance free with my bank or in the past bought it from specialist travel insurance company.

The annual insurance is by far the best value.

We have free family travel insurance included in our bank account from Santander.

Graham I came across flight cover only companies like easyJet and Ryan air offer it,more missed or delayed flights,they also offer travel insurance also so can't understand why the op didn't book the travel insurance as it doesn't cost much more than the flight insurance, especially as travel insurance covers the flights and holiday,medical,lost money,possessions etc seems a better deal to me all round.

Graham, you are like me as as I wrote in post 2 I've come across cover just for flights.

Just looked at my policy for winter visit and it's called a travel insurance policy which covers everything. Unfortunately got to the age when many travel insurance companies will not approve an annual policy, or cover trips of more than 30 days, so no choice but have one-off policies these days.
