Holiday Insurance

Holiday Insurance Cover

Award-winning cover from £12.25 per person

Booking the perfect holiday means more than just the flights and hotels, it can be your travel insurance policy that secures a stress-free getaway.

We have two types of travel insurance policies...

Travel to Europe for one week with our Basic cover - perfect for a single trip:

  • £500 cancellation cover per person.
  • £1 million medical cover
  • £500 baggage per person
  • £1500 personal possessions cover per person.
  • Under 18's travel free
  • 24/7 Emergency helpline

All of the policies are available to our customers travelling to the UK, Europe and Worldwide, so there are no limitations to where you can travel and we'll make sure you're fully covered all the way.

Family travel insurance

More great news! On selected policies, under 18's receive FREE cover with a paying adult, making our insurance the perfect choice for the whole family.

Make a visit to our family travel insurance page for more information and to make a booking.

Travel insurance for backpackers

If you are ready to see the world then you'll need to have the right travel insurance. We don't have a specific backpacker travel insurance because our single trip and annual multi-trip policies work flexibly to suit how you like to see the world. You can choose to travel for a whole year abroad with our single trip policy or travel intermittently with regular visits home between trips on our annual multi-trip policy.

For more information and to book an affordable policy suitable for backpacking, be sure to visit our page.

Travelling with a medical condition?

If you are looking to find affordable travel insurance with pre-existing conditions, then be sure to visit our new pages. If any of these conditions apply to you, have a read and see if we can relieve your concerns before you make your booking.

If you've experienced difficulties getting travel insurance for senior citizens or perhaps you've faced premium rates, take a look at our policies aimed at mature travellers and enter your details for a quick quote.

At Holiday Extras we only use UK-based call centres and we provide a 24-hour emergency helpline. So no matter what, you'll always be able to speak to one of our friendly advisors.

All of our cover includes End Supplier Failure Cover, with Scheduled Airline Failure Cover (SAFI Cover). So, you'll have complete protection if any part of your holiday, including your hotel or airline, goes out of business before your holiday or while you're away.

Can I request to refund my policy?

Yes, you can refund your premium in full within 14 days of purchase providing you have not claimed or travelled on your policy.

Where can I travel with my holiday insurance policy?

When you complete our simple booking form, you will be asked to select whether you are travelling to:

  • Europe inc. UK
  • Worldwide inc. USA
  • Worldwide exc. USA

How do I submit a claim upon my return?

First, it is important you check that what you wish to claim is covered by your policy. If so, then simply visit our online claims notification service or call our claims line on 020 8666 9326 to obtain a claims form.

Alternatively, you can write to: Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance claims department, PO Box 1900, Croydon, CR90 9BA

You can also email:

For all claims you will need:

  • All original journey invoices and travel documents displaying dates and times of your trip.
  • The receipts and evidence for all unexpected payments you had to spend and wish to claim back.
  • Original bills you are asked to pay.
  • Details of the any other insurance policies you have. Such as household or medical insurance.
  • Any evidence you might need to support your claim.

What if I choose not to declare my existing medical condition?

In the unfortunate event that you require medical treatment that is anyway related to your undisclosed condition, then all of your claims will be rejected and your travel insurance policy will be rendered invalid.

Bear in mind that medical treatment abroad can cost thousands. For example, an air stretcher back to the UK from Australia can cost between £15-£20k. Be sure to visit our pre-existing conditions page and make a small and wise investment.
