So you are looking for going away on a longer holiday than usual, perhaps to a far away destination? We have some suggestions for countries where you should really be looking at a minimum of 31 days to make it worth it.
Two countries that spring to mind are Australia and New Zealand. By flying to the destinations you can eat up 4 days of your trip just getting there, thats not taking into account that getting over jetlag can take a few days, particularly when you are heading over 12 time zones away in the case of New Zealand!
Listed below are travel insurance providers for UK citizens who are looking at 30 or 31 plus days of travel.
