It's always a disappointment when you have to cancel a holiday, but sometimes it's unavoidable. You could become ill, an accident might befall you or someone you're travelling with or you could be asked to serve on a jury. In the event of the worst happening, it makes sense to protect the money you've paid to book your accommodation.

A holiday booking is a legally binding contract. This could leave you liable for the full cost of the holiday if unforeseen circumstances force you to cancel. These expenses can be significant. The cost of renting a holiday cottage can run into hundreds of pounds, thousands during the peak season. Staying in hotels in the UK can be just as pricey as abroad.

Holiday cancellation insurance could stop you throwing away large sums in cancellation charges, lost deposits and holiday costs.

Our cancellation insurance for UK travellers is available for self catering cottage holidays, hotel, bed and breakfast or guesthouse bookings. If you have to cancel or cut short your holiday the policy covers your accommodation costs.

How much does holiday cancellation insurance cost?

You can insure your UK holiday for as little as £17 for £1000 of cover, with an option to increase up to the value of £3000. We think that's a small price to pay for peace of mind.
