Holiday insurance for weekend travel

Make the most of your weekend and make it a short break. Hop on a plane and see a city, explore the countryside and make some memories - all before Monday morning. It might be over before you know it but, booking a holiday insurance policy before you go is still an absolute must. At Holiday Extras, we've made sure our policies are equipped with the cover you need for a stress-free short break including: lost baggage and personal possessions cover, cancellation cover and medical cover for unexpected treatments and declared medical conditions.

You can jam-pack a weekend with so many activities, it'd be a shame to waste the opportunity. All of our policies include cover for over 100 sports and activities - so there's no reason to hold back. Whether you intend to cycle through the weekend, learn how to scuba dive or just fancy a kick around, we've got you covered. If you're taking a weekend break to enjoy your favourite hobbies then we can upgrade your travel insurance with additional activities to cover a range of things including winter sports. It's a good idea to upgrade your policy if you intend to bring your own equipment or hire some!
