Designed for cottage holidays, hotel bookings and short breaks in the UK
It's always disappointing when you have to cancel a holiday, but sometimes it's unavoidable and out of your hands. It could be that you, a close relative or those travelling with you get ill, injured or sadly, die. In the event of the unexpected happening, it makes sense to protect the money you've paid for your accommodation.
A holiday booking is a legally binding contract and no matter the circumstances you could be left liable for the full cost of the holiday if unforeseen circumstances force you to cancel.
These expenses can be significant. Staying in hotels and cottages in the UK can be just as pricey as going abroad.
With such steep costs, it's a huge risk not taking out holiday cancellation insurance. The chances are, any cancellations would result in you losing some, if not all of your money. However, investing in holiday cancellation insurance means you could avoid expensive cancellation charges, lost deposits and holiday accommodation costs.
Our holiday insurance covers UK travellers renting a holiday cottage, canal boat, caravan/lodge holidays or hotel/B&B/guesthouse bookings. Should you have to cancel or cut short your holiday for specific unforeseen, covered reasons our policy will cover your accommodation costs.Get a Quote and Buy Online
Do you need travel insurance for UK holidays?
Travellers assume that insurance is an unnecessary expense for a holiday in the UK. However, holidaymakers are equally exposed to accidents and illness regardless of their destination. Cancellation and curtailment are the most common claims made on domestic holidays so it's wise to make sure your UK break is protected.
Of course, you won't need medical cover because you have access to NHS treatment. Also, home insurance typically covers money, baggage and personal effects if lost, damaged or stolen whilst away from home. (Check if you already have this cover with another type of policy).
Although other key factors of travel insurance cover isn't always necessary for breaks in the UK, it is beneficial to take out cancellation cover as it is common practice for holiday operators to charge for cancelled or abandoned holidays.
