Choosing the right travel insurance at the cheapest price

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. We would like to let you know there are many insurers out there offering travel insurance policies at extremely low prices. However, there are a few things you should look out for when choosing a cheaper holiday insurance policy ...

Policy Excess

Beware of policies that reel travellers in with cheap prices and amazing cover figures without revealing the high excess the traveller will have to pay to receive their cover. Avoiding this potential issue is easy - simply scan through the policy wording of the insurance policy before buying, checking for any unnecessarily high excesses. With Holiday Extras, all our cheap travel insurance policies come with a low excess of no more than £125. And with our premium insurance, you even have the option of removing this excess by simply adding an excess waiver when taking out your policy.

End Supplier Failure

When you are looking for cheap travel insurance it is also clear that many insurance providers do not offer cover for end supplier failure at a cheap rate. End supplier failure is an important part of your cheap travel insurance policy as this insures you against losing any money if your hotel or travel company go bankrupt before or during the course of your holiday.

If you compare cheap travel insurance UK policies, why pay extra for cover that does not include end supplier failure because this could be very beneficial in the event of your hotel or travel company going bankrupt. The key part of end supplier failure is that the insurer will pay up to the amount shown in your summary of cover, in total, for costs you incur as a result of insolvency of the end supplier that you made travel arrangements with prior to departure, this isn't just prior to departure though and includes financial failure after departure - so, in short, if your airline or hotel chain go bust you are covered if this is included in your package.
