No deal, no problem
Protect your holiday from a no-deal Brexit, from just £17.50*
With the UK political climate in a state of constant flux regarding Brexit, it's understandable that if you have a holiday booked, you could have some concerns about travelling. This is nowhere more apparent than in the event of a no-deal Brexit. A no-deal scenario means that the UK would immediately leave the European Union, with no withdrawal period. For a more in-depth look into Brexit, and its potential impact, see here.
Brexit Disruption Cover is available as an add-on in both single and annual multi-trip policies, for individuals, couples, families and single parent families.
At Holiday Extras, we want to ensure that no matter where and when you're travelling, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, you can have enhanced protection.
If you have to cancel or curtail your holiday as a result of:
- Cancellation of flights between UK and EU airports
- Cancellation of ferries between UK and EU ports
- Cancellation of Eurostar trains between UK and EU
- Closure of the Channel Tunnel
Should you already be on your holiday and your return journey is disrupted in the event of a no-deal Brexit, then cover is also provided in the event of:
- Trip disruption
- Missed departure, Inbound and Outbound (missed departure does not apply to Bronze cover)
- Missed onward connection, Inbound and Outbound
- Delayed arrival back in the UK
