Holiday Extras travel insurance for your adventure

Be daring this year and book a holiday packed with adventure. Before you start packing, at the top of your travel checklist should be booking a travel insurance policy.

With two types of policies and four levels of cover to choose from, we make finding the best adventure holiday insurance policy simple and affordable. Depending on how often you like to travel you might suit a single trip or an annual travel insurance policy.

So if you are travelling just once this year, our single trip travel insurance policy provides cover for up to 365 days. Or if you travel frequently, you could take advantage of our annual travel insurance, which offers cover for an unlimited amount of trips across 12 months - just make sure each trip does not exceed the number of days specified by your level of cover.

All of our policies cover cancellation and medical costs, personal possessions and lost baggage, plus a 24/7 emergency call team on hand when you need it most:

Additional cover

We have additional cover options available to extend your chosen policy. In doing so, we can include cover for hobbies like winter sports to your regular policy. For example, our winter sports travel insurance includes cover for your own and hired equipment plus piste closure and avalanche cover as well.

Booking your policy

Booking is simple and straightforward. You can book online by completing the quote form at the top of this page to choose your level of cover. Follow through to customise your policy and include any upgrade options, then proceed to make your payment. If you would prefer to book via telephone then simply place a free call to our friendly UK-based team to arrange your policy.

Travel insurance with medical conditions

We believe that living and travelling with a medical condition is just another part of your own adventure, so we see no reason to hike up your premium. Instead, we work alongside our underwriters to provide an individually tailored quote that suits you and your holiday. Our team are specially trained to arrange comprehensive policies with additional medical cover for the littlest price.
