UK Travel Insurance

Many people think that they only need to buy travel insurance when travelling outside of the UK. However, a large part of what travel insurance covers you for is still just as appropriate for UK staycation holidays.

With the prices of a lot of staycation holidays at their peak, it has never been a better time to get cover for those unforeseen events to prevent you losing out financially. At Holidaysafe we want to help those that want to create precious memories in the UK with their family, with our excellent range of travel insurance cover for trips within UK borders.

We believe our single and multi trip policies are suitable, whatever your staycation trip will entail.

Why Do You Need A UK Travel Insurance Policy?

We always advice that you take out your travel insurance policy as soon as you book your holiday so that you are protected in the event of a cancellation. You will also be covered in the event of delays to your departure and the cost of your luggage and possessions during the length of your holiday in the UK.

Does UK Travel Insurance Cover COVID?

Our UK travel insurance will cover any Covid related incident as part of our specialist COVID-19 extension. This will provide cancellation cover if you or anyone else named on the policy tests positive for COVID 14 days before you are due or cover in the event that you or anyone else named on the policy has to come home early due to COVID.
