Designed for cottage holidays, hotel bookings and short breaks in the UK

It's always a disappointment when you have to cancel a holiday, but sometimes it's unavoidable. You, a close relative or a person you’re travelling with could get ill, injured or die. In the event of the unexpected 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 price of renting a holiday cottage can cost thousands of pounds. Staying in hotels and cottages in the UK can be just as pricey as abroad.

Holiday cancellation insurance could avoid expensive 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 should you have to cancel for specific unforeseen, covered reasons.

Do you need travel insurance for UK holidays?

Travel insurance could be an unnecessary expense for UK holidays. You won't need medical cover because you have access to NHS treatment. Also, home insurance typically covers your personal belongings if lost, damaged or stolen whilst away from home. (Check if you already have cover with another type of policy).

Cancellation and curtailment cover may be adequate.

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.
