Travel Insurance

Holiday Extras' award-winning, flexible policies are here to help you travel hassle-free and with peace of mind.

With 40 years experience selling holiday insurance, half a million policies sold annually and the recipient of Globe's Best Insurance Provider 14 years running, it's safe to say we know a thing or two about insurance. That's why, at Holiday Extras we've put together three levels of cover that can be tailored specifically to your individual needs.

Book your travel insurance on or offline

We have over 30 trained insurance specialists, as well as an Insurance Support Page waiting to help you book the perfect policy and answer any questions you may have. We've also put together the Holiday Extras' Hassle-free Holiday Hub; your one-stop shop for information to get you prepared for your trip.

What is Travel Insurance?

While no one wants to think about worst-case scenarios whilst on holiday, it is worth having a safety net in place should something go wrong down the line that could potentially leave you out of pocket. That's why it's important to have the best travel insurance for your own specific needs. Whether you need a single trip or annual travel insurance policy, or maybe you're setting sail and need cruise insurance — we have a wide array of comparable holiday insurance options for you to choose from.

Alongside our trusted, reliable and comprehensive cover, Holiday Extras are also specialists for medical travel insurance. If you have a medical condition (or multiple conditions), our compassionate and understanding team will work with you to find you a policy that meets your requirements. With over 99% of common conditions covered, we are proud to say that our specialist medical cover meets the requirements for inclusion on the Money Advice Service (MAS) travel insurance directory.

Cheap Travel Insurance

Single trip and annual travel insurance policies available.

Our single trip travel insurance is a great option if you're looking for insurance for one holiday. A single trip policy will cover you for one trip up to 365 days.

If you're planning on taking more than one trip in a year, you may want to consider taking out an annual multi-trip travel insurance policy. This annual policy insures you for an unlimited number of trips throughout the 12 month policy period, given that each trip does not exceed 45 days, and could save you the money and the hassle of having to take out a brand new policy for each individual trip. Our annual trip insurance also covers you both abroad and for UK trips.

Medical travel insurance

Holiday Extras is a medical insurance specialist, featuring on the Money Advice Service (MAS) travel insurance directory, which the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) has confirmed meets its criteria for addition to the 'medical cover firm directory'. If you have a medical condition or multiple conditions, we will endeavour to find a policy that both covers your needs and suits your exacting requirements.

With a Holiday Extras policy, you can get from 5 million to unlimited medical cover, should anything happen to you while abroad. While this initially might seem like an enormous amount, and maybe even unnecessary for you, the cost of health care abroad is wildly more expensive than it is at home in the UK. If you currently have a pre-existing medical condition, or have previously had one, then you will need to declare your condition(s) via our confidential medical screening process..

We will consider all medical conditions and offer cover for the majority of pre-existing conditions. This includes all forms of cancer.
