Our comprehensive policies can provide alternative accommodation if you’re unable to use your booked accommodation due to a number of risks, including; volcanic eruption, volcanic ash clouds, tsunami, landslide, avalanche, hurricane, an outbreak of food poisoning, infectious disease or insolvency of your accommodation provider.

Legal expenses

Legal expenses cover up to £50,000 and personal liability cover up to £2,000,000

Flexible cover for different stages of your trip

Take out additional protection to make sure you’re covered before you reach your destination, whilst you are away and when you’re on your way home.

We offer two levels of travel insurance cover to ensure you are fully protected, essential and comprehensive. The benefits under comprehensive are generally higher than essential. It can be useful to arrange your travel insurance at the same time as you book your holiday, as this will ensure that you're protected for any financial loss should you have to cancel.

What is single trip travel insurance?

A single trip insurance policy will insure you for just one holiday over a set period of time, with cover starting when you take out the policy and ending when you return home. Depending on the policy level you choose, you can get covered against unexpected costs relating to things like medical expenses, cancellation, airline failure protection, lost luggage and more. If you only go away once or twice a year, it will usually be more cost effective to take out a single trip policy. If you're a frequent traveller, you may want to consider annual multi trip insurance.
