Choosing the best travel insurance policy for you:

At Holiday Extras, we like to apply a hassle-free approach to supplying you with the best and cheapest travel insurance for your New York getaway. Taking out a travel insurance premium is imperative wherever you go, but absolutely essential if you're heading States-side as the U.S. is a certainly not a place you don't want to get caught out through risking it!

We understand completely that holidays are times to take a step back from the daily grind of normal working life and for you to enter full relaxation mode. Unfortunately, sometimes accidents or unforeseen scenarios arise where you require medical attention. Unlike European countries with the EHIC (that nifty card where Brits are entitled to the same healthcare as locals), the United States has no such nationalised health care plan for visitors, and as a result health care is incredibly expensive — for nationals and tourists alike — if you haven't taken out travel insurance.

We intend for the build-up to your flight to be completely stress-free through our policies including differing cancellation cover. If you need medical attention for declared medical conditions or unforeseen medical expenses, our cover can help to negate the USA's high premiums.

Single or Annual trip?

Our single trip policy lasts up to 365 days and must start and end in the UK. Our annual cover allows you to take multiple trips over the year with the premium level of protection, and groups who live together can benefit from annual policies which do not require them to travel together. Whichever direct or referral policy level you select, children aged under 18 can also find affordable cover.

If you're under 18 and looking for an annual policy, you'll need to travel with an adult.

Booking your policy

The booking process is nice and easy, simply fill in our insurance quote form above to choose a policy. We strongly implore you to declare any pre-existing medical conditions (if any) to ensure your medical travel insurance is entirely valid should anything happen to you while away.

Tips for New York travel:

Currency: It is advisable to convert your pounds to US dollars in advance, to get the best rate. If you need more cash you'll find banks and moneychangers throughout New York.

Visa: British travellers may be able to fly into New York on a reciprocal visa-waiver programme, but ordinarily a US visa from a consulate or embassy is required for entry.

Valuables: Crime rates in New York have decreased significantly in recent years, but when visiting bustling attractions like Times Square be sure to keep your valuables secure as with any tourist destination, pickpocketing is rife. Common sense and caution is always advised and never misplaced when you're visiting a new destination!
