These enhancements are for both new and existing policies.

Nick Harrison, Head of Products at first direct , said: “We hope our customers always remember their holidays for the right reasons.

  • 15% online discount for all new policies
  • choose single trip (ages 16 to 79) or annual multi-trip (ages 16 to 74) policy
