Summary of Holiday Cancellation Insurance Cover

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. Without travel cancellation insurance they leave themselves vulnerable to unexpected and sometimes significant costs should they have to cancel their holiday.

Of course, medical insurance isn't needed for holidays in the UK because of the NHS. Money, baggage and personal effects may also be covered by a household insurance policy. However, it is common practice for holiday operators to charge for cancelled or abandoned holidays.

What is covered?

Our holiday cancellation insurance provides cover should you or any members of your holiday party cancel or cut short your holiday due to accidents, death, illness, jury service, redundancy or if your home becomes uninhabitable. You are even covered if a close business colleague or relative who is not on your holiday falls ill.
