Does Travel Insurance Cover Festivals?
Going to a festival this year? You've got your tent, rollmat and an immeasurable amount of glitter sorted. Way before you do the all-important luggage checklist, finding a travel insurance policy should be on the cards! Now it might not necessarily strike you as a super-important factor to consider but when you think about it, a lot of money and anticipation is invested in attending a music or arts festival, so why should you lose out should something go terribly wrong?
Should you have to cancel your plans at the last minute, you miss your train, coach or flight (all for unforseen events beyond your control), having taken out a reliable insurance policy will be of immense comfort to you and your bank account! From our brilliant UK travel insurance to our European policies, there is something for everyone and every festival.
Cover for festivals abroad and in the UK
Our policies are designed with you in mind, with either a Single Trip or an Annual Multi-Trip policy, and then four levels of cover to pick from. We like to keep things simple, and our mission statement is to supply 'hassle-free' holidays for everyone. With our Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels of cover and optional added extras like Gadget cover, you can tailor your travel insurance policy to exactly what you need covered.
Have a browse at the table below for an idea of what you can expect from each level of cover:
Whether you're going to Glastonbury, Boomtown or Creamfields in the UK, or maybe you fancy being a bit continental and are going to Outlook, Hideout or Dekmantel in Europe, we have some great travel insurance policies to protect your festival holiday!
- Going to a UK-based music festival? Then look no further. Taking out our UK travel insurance is dead simple, with just one cover level: Bronze.
This is probably the big one, the reason you'd want to insure your festival frolick: the beloved and coveted mobile phone. Breaking — or worse, losing — your phone while secluded at a festival is probably enough to make most people wince their eyes with fear. Making sure your phone is secure and insured in case of any damage or loss will probably be at the top of most tech-loving people's list.
At Holiday Extras, we know how dependent everyone is on our phones. They connect us with our friends, family and letting us know what's going on in the world. For this reason, why not make sure you're covered in case something should happen to it while you're having a dance, walking through a muddy puddle or waiting for the coach. Our gadget cover is classed as an add-on and therefore you're able to select it as an additional level of cover on top of your policy.†
† Unfortunately, if you need emergency medical cover abroad, you are injured or have to cut your trip short, your policy will be invalid if the injury, accident or cancellation is caused while you are under the influence of non-prescribed drugs, solvents, or excessive alcohol consumption.

Am I covered to go to more than one festival?
If you're attending two or more festivals within a year (lucky you, we're not jealous at all...), you might want to consider taking out an Annual Multi-Trip policy. Depending on where you're going, you might end up saving a few pennies compared to buying multiple Single Trip policies.
If you're still undecided, take a look at the table below to compare the pros and cons of a Single vs. Annual travel insurance policy:
|Your trip can last up to 365 days but must start and end in the UK to be entirely valid||Maximum trip duration varies depending on the policy: 22 days for Bronze, 31 days for Silver and Gold, 45 days for Platinum|
|Travel insurance must be bought on UK soil. So don't try to book a policy at the airport gate, on the runway or while abroad!||Groups can benefit from an annual policy and do not need to live together — that's just for our family policies!|
|Anyone any age can travel — even under 18s can travel alone||Under 18s must travel with an adult and you cannot travel on the policy if you are older than 79 years at the date of booking|
|With prices starting from just *||With prices starting from just|
