Cover Levels
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)

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)

FAQs

What is the age limit on Single Trip policies? Our Single Trip policies have no upper age limits, so we can provide cover for anyone 80+ subject to medical screening and their destination of choice. Do the sums insured benefit the whole group or each person? The sums insured apply to each individual person covered by the policy. What do you define as a medical condition? The Holidaysafe policy defines a Medical Condition as any serious or recurring medical condition which has been previously diagnosed, investigated or treated in any way, at any time prior to buying the insurance, even if this condition is currently considered to be stable and under control. How long in advance can I quote/purchase Single Trip Travel Insurance? Unfortunately, we cannot quote you for more than a year in advance. Please bear this in mind before contacting us as we don’t want to disappoint you. Just come back once your holiday is within the year time frame! View All
