Holiday insurance for independent travel

We know that planning your own adventure is an exciting prospect and holiday insurance might not be at the top of your travel checklist. It is however, an absolute must-have for any journey. At Holiday Extras, our policies offer great cover including: baggage and cancellation cover, medical cover for unforeseen treatments and declared medical conditions, plus a 24-hour helpline to keep you feeling safe and secure throughout your holiday.

Additional cover

Travelling independently is the perfect opportunity to try the sports and activities you've always wanted to - that said, you might struggle on a tandem bicycle! Our policies already include cover for 100+ sports including water-skiing and safari trekking. But we can also extend your cover at an additional premium to include hobbies such as winter sports and golf. It's wise to consider these additional options if you are hiring equipment or travelling with your own!

Choosing Holiday Extras as your insurance provider

Independent travel is a bold move and should be rewarded. How about the best travel insurance policy? We've got two policy types and three levels of cover to keep our policies flexible.
