Choosing the right travel insurance

When it comes to travel insurance, it can be tempting to just book the very cheapest policy you can find and then forget about the whole thing. There are many insurers out there offering travel insurance policies at outrageously low prices. However, there are a few things you should look out for when choosing a travel insurance policy...

Policy Excess

Beware of policies that reel travellers in with dirt cheap prices and fat cover figures, without revealing the ridiculous excess the traveller will have to pay to receive their cover. Avoiding this potential issue is easy - simple scan through the policy wording of the insurance policy before buying, checking for any unnecessarily high excesses. With Holiday Extras, all our policies come with a low excess of no more than £100. You even have the option of removing this excess by simply adding an excess waiver when taking out your policy.

Additional cover

Make sure you're covered for all your planned holiday activities. With Holiday Extras, getting additional cover is easy. Add the winter sports cover if you're hitting the slopes and the best cruise travel insurance before setting sail. Whatever the journey, we'll make sure you have the right financial protection you need to suit your trip.

Single Trip or Annual Travel Insurance?

Our single trip policy provides cover for one trip of up to 365 days. With three levels of cover to choose from, so you don't have to fork out extra for any cover you don't need. For more information on our cheap single trip policies, visit our single trip travel insurance page

For the more frequent traveller, we deliver financial cover for an unlimited amount of trips across 12 months given that each trip does not exceed 23 days. For more information on our reliable, cheap annual travel insurance visit our annual travel insurance page.

European or Worldwide Travel Insurance?

Another thing you will need to check is whether your destination will be covered under your policy. As healthcare can sometimes be more expensive outside the EU, insurers may charge more for worldwide medical cover. It's always best to have this clarified by your potential insurer before taking out the policy.

With Holiday Extras you can get cheap, reliable worldwide and european travel insurance with top quality medical cover.

Get worldwide cover from just £23.50

If you are unsure whether your destination is covered under european or worldwide travel insurance, simply enter your travel information into the booking engine for an instant quote.

Travelling with Children?

At Holiday Extras, under 18's are covered for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Getting cheap children's travel insurance is simple with policies as low as £3.23 per week.

Cheap Travel insurance with medical conditions

Most insurers will want to know about any medical conditions you might have, before you book your policy. In order to benefit from your cover, it's really important to declare any pre-existing medical conditions you may have.

At Holiday Extras, finding an affordable travel insurance policy with pre-existing conditions conditions is simple. Just let us know of any medical conditions you may have and we can put together an affordable travel insurance policy that meets your needs.

If you are unsure about anything, visit our new pages on travelling with medical conditions. Alternatively, you can contact us on 0800 093 1900, quoting WEB1 and a member of our insurance team will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
