Buy When You Book
When you’re caught in the rush of booking a holiday and the excitement that comes with it, it’s easy to understand why something boring like travel insurance skips your mind until the last minute.
If you’re taking advantage of the amazing deals that are on offer this season from companies like British Airways, On the Beach and TUI, we’d bet that you haven’t yet got travel insurance.
We’re on a mission to help travellers make the most out of their cover, which is why we’ve launched our Buy When You Book campaign.
You can cancel for FREE if you’ve only paid your trip deposit, meaning you don’t have to pay any excess if you’re only claiming for the cost of your holiday deposit*.

Buying insurance when you book your holiday gives you further peace of mind. How? Any good policy will have cover for cancellation and any other issues such as financial failure of your end supplier or airline, but you need to have cover in place before these events occur.
If you need to cancel your trip because you or a family member have fallen ill, or if a natural event happens in your destination and you don’t have cover in place, you could lose any of the costs you have already paid towards your holiday, such as your deposit.
If like us, you’re already planning your travel for next year then make sure you get cover in place as soon as your money is at risk or you’ve committed to your purchase i.e. as soon as you book your flights, put down a deposit on your trip or pay for your accommodation.
Our cover starts from just £4.49*, and includes the following benefits:
- COVID cover on our Staycation Plus, Standard, Premier, Premier Plus, Platinum and Winter Single Trip and Multi Trip policies
- Award-winning cover
- Cover for cancellation, medical emergencies, personal belongings, cash and travel documents cover plus much more.
- 24/7 Access to a UK-based GP during your trip
- Extensive UK holiday cover on our Staycation Plus policy
- No upper age limits (depending on your destination and duration of choice)
- Discounts for couples
- Multiple levels of cover and extensions, so you can tailor your policy to suit your needs

Zero Excess on Deposit-Only Claims – Terms & Conditions
This offer only extends to deposit-only claims. Should you need to claim for the full cost of your holiday, the excess applicable on your main policy will still apply.

Up to £7,500* Cancellation cover
This section of cover begins from the second you pay your premium when buying a Single Trip policy, and from the start date that you choose when purchasing a Multi-Trip policy. Cancellation cover can step in to cover pre-paid costs, for things like accommodation, transport and car hire, that you cannot recover from any other source (e.g. your tour operator) in the event that you cannot go on your trip. The section will cover cancellation for a number of reasons, but it is important that you read your policy wording for full details. *(Under our Platinum policy)
Up to £10,000,000* Medical Cover
Injury or illness are inconvenient at the best of times, but imagine needing emergency medical attention abroad – you may not be able to communicate with doctors, and will most likely have to pay for your treatment. This is where our medical expenses section can help you, as we will consider medical bills up to £10,000,000 on many policies, including the cost of getting you back to the UK if medically necessary. Furthermore, every Holidaysafe policy comes with access to our doctor managed emergency medical helpline, which is available to help you 24 hours a day, every day of the year. *(Under our Premier, Premier Plus & Platinum policy)
View All Cover Levels
Up to £3,000* Personal Possessions Cover
Some of the most common and annoying holiday disasters involve personal possessions, such as lost, stolen, damaged or delayed baggage. These policy sections can step in to cover the costs of these disasters, but you must check the cover to ensure the policy limits are enough to cover the items you are taking abroad. If you need cover for gadgets, make sure this is covered as standard on your chosen policy, otherwise, you can add the cover as an extension on the options page of the quote process. *(Under our Premier Plus & Platinum policy)
