It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

Travel insurance that’s with you all the way - so you’ll be ready to roll, wherever your holiday takes you.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why being covered for holiday cancellation is important

Liz (1) booked her holiday and bought her travel insurance at the same time.

The day before she was due to go away, Liz’s GP unfortunately advised her not to travel due to poor health.

After her disappointment and sending us her claim, Liz was relieved to find the claims money in her bank account just three working days later.

Taking out personalised travel insurance when you book your holiday means you can relax, knowing you’re covered for cancellation from the start, just like Liz.

Do I need to have had both my Covid jabs to be covered?

As long as you’ve had the vaccines you’ve been offered for Covid-19, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered both doses yet or you’re medically exempt then you can also be covered.

If you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine or haven’t been able to have a dose you’ve been offered, you won’t be covered.

Does travel insurance cover cancellation?

All of our travel insurance policies cover you for cancellation and cutting your holiday short.

If you have to cancel your trip because of unforeseen circumstances, we’ll have you covered.

We will cover you for any of the following reasons:

  • You, a close relative or travelling companion has unforeseen illness, injury or death.
  • Travel delays of more than 12 hours to the departure of your outward journey.
  • You (or travelling companion) being made redundant.
  • The FCDO (Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office) issuing advice against all but essential travel because of natural disasters.
  • Your home has been made uninhabitable.

We understand that cancelling your holiday is disappointing. But having personalised cover with cancellation can help take some of the hassle away, knowing you’ve got help at hand when you need it.

With our Deluxe travel insurance policy, you’ll be covered for up to £7,500 for cancellation. Or you’ll be covered for cancellation for up to £10,000 with Deluxe Cruise cover.

With our help, you can go on holiday feeling protected. After all, if anything happens, we’ll always aim to put it right.

When should I buy my travel insurance for cancellation?

You can buy your policy any time between booking your trip and starting it, it’s completely up to you. But you might find it best to take your travel insurance out as soon as you’ve booked your trip, this way you’ll be covered if you have to cancel.

What do I do if my travel company goes bust?

Cancellation cover will not protect you against your travel company going bust, so it’s important to make sure you have End Supplier Failure. Our End Supplier Failure is included as standard on both our Classic and Deluxe travel insurance policies.
