If you compare these travel insurance providers you can see that you receive equivalent, or even higher levels of cover, with Holiday Extras than with other well-known insurers - at a significantly cheaper price. If you compare medical cover it's clear that Holiday Extras matches other holiday insurance providers and even doubles the level of medical cover offered by the Post Office.

For a lower premium, if you compare travel insurance, our public liability matches other, more expensive travel insurance providers. Again, at a cheaper price, we also offer higher cancellation cover than Legal and General and the Post Office. Another benefit of Holiday Extras, when you compare travel insurance, is that we cover you up to £5,000 in end supplier failure. The only other insurance provider to cover this, at the prices listed, is Direct Line but at a much higher premium of over double the cheap price of our premium travel insurance.

Compare Annual-Trip Travel Insurance

Compare our holiday insurance in the table below against well-known insurance providers. Compare the key policy cover values when you book annual multi-trip holiday insurance at Holiday Extras versus similar policies from other trusted providers. This comparison is, again, using our highest and most comprehensive premium cover policy:

Holiday Extras Zurich Legal and General Post Office AA
Price* £50.00 £64.20 £58.44 £60.88 £56.52
Medical £10 million £10 million £12.5 million £10 million £10 million

*Prices based on 1 person aged 25 with no pre-existing medical conditions, travelling to Europe incl. Spain/Cyprus/Malta on an annual-trip policy starting 10/10/2018. Prices correct as of October 2018.

It's clear when you compare travel insurance that our annual policy, at a cheaper price, can offer up to the equivalent amount of cover as other well-known travel insurance providers. Holiday Extras offers the same public liability insurance and, if you compare medical cover, we offer up to £10 million in cover which is the same as 3 other providers we have compared against.

Once again Holiday Extras offers up to £5,000 in an end supplier failure scenario which is higher, or the same as other providers in comparison. Legal and General and AA do not currently provide this cover at the premiums listed, so it pays to compare travel insurance and learn exactly what is provided with your cover.

Read on to learn more about end supplier failure.

What is End Supplier Failure?

When you compare travel insurance it is apparent that at varying package costs, when you compare comprehensive Holiday Extras' travel insurance against other providers, that many do not offer cover for end supplier failure. End supplier failure is an important part of your travel insurance policy. In order to fairly compare holiday insurance you need to understand what you could be missing out on.

End supplier failure insures you against losing any money if your hotel or travel company go bankrupt before or during the course of your holiday. 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 we've got you covered.

If you compare travel insurance 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. It's not fun to think about but when you compare cheap travel insurance, it's important to have that possibility covered too.

We too often hear of this happening in the news but if you book with Holiday Extras you are safe in the knowledge that with our premium cover policy we've got this eventuality covered, up to the sum of £5000. Check our policy wording for further information.
