Step 1

Once you decide to buy insurance, it's worth comparing what different operators have to offer. By all means ask your current health insurer or travel agent, but don't just do that. A good trawler website is comparetravelinsuranceireland.com.

Step 2

Paying for annual cover can be only marginally more than per trip cover. Ask.

Step 3

Complete an application form with names and ages of travelers; if there are over 65s in your group, you may need to get extra cover.

Step 4

Pay in one go if you can; there may be direct debit charges for monthly payments.
