With added peace of mind that if you were to contract Covid-19 within 14 days of your trip starting, your holiday will be protected. If you choose a short UK getaway or a city break in Europe or an even longer stay travelling around the world we have a policy for you.

Not only does our Covid-19 travel insurance cover you for cancellation, if you fall ill with Covid-19 during your trip and you have to return early you are covered. Medical expenses including costs to treat Covid-19 while you are away on your trip are also covered.
