Why is travel insurance important?

When you purchase travel insurance you are in essence protecting yourself against travel risks. The most common being cancellation of your holiday, stolen luggage and medical cover.
According to The Association of British Insurers (ABI).

  • 3,000 Britains require emergency medical treatment abroad every week.
  • The average medical claim now supasses £1,300
  • £145 million was paid out for 167,000 cancellation claims
  • The average claim relating to heart problems in the US is £241,000

Despite this, one in five Brits travel overseas without travel insurance. Having a suitable policy in place not only gives you peace of mind, but can really save you a small fortune should the worst happen.

What is travel insurance?

To put it simply: travel insurance or 'holiday insurance' is a precaution. When going on holiday you invest money in your trip: from transport, parking, accommodation and luggage — not to mention your health too.

When you book a travel insurance policy, you're buying security. If things go wrong before your holiday, while travelling or when you're away, you can relax knowing that Holiday Extras has you covered against insurable, unforeseen incidents that could negatively impact your holiday.

Whether you need a single trip policy, an annual travel insurance policy to cover you for 365 days, or maybe you're setting sail and need cruise insurance — we have a wide array of comparable cover level options for you to choose from.
