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. Plus a 24-hour helpline ready to provide support when you need it most.

100+ sports and activities included

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!

Choosing Holiday Extras as your insurance provider

With two types of policies to choose from, there's plenty of flexibility to suit how you like to travel. A single trip travel insurance policy will keep you covered for one trip of up to 365 days. It's the perfect option for booking a weekend getaway and even better if they're your only travel plans this year. With a single trip policy you can choose from the following levels of cover:

  • Bronze cover provides £500 of baggage insurance and £1,000 of cancellation cover per person, as well as £5 million towards medical costs.
  • Silver cover offers cancellation insurance of £2,500 per person, medical cover of £10 million and baggage cover at £1,500.
  • Gold cover provides medical protection of £10 million and increases baggage cover to £2,000 and cancellation cover to £5,000 per person.
  • Platinum cover offers up to £10 million for emergency medical, £2,000 for baggage and up £2,000 for cancellation, as well as gadget and wedding cover, with no excess to pay.

Annual travel insurance

If you're lucky enough to be travelling more than twice this year, or weekend breaks are how you like to travel. Then an annual travel insurance policy may be a good option. Our annual policy provides the same cover levels as our single trip packages on a multi-trip basis. So you will benefit from whichever level of cover suits you best for an unlimited amount of trips across 12 months - just make sure that each trip doesn't exceed the number of days specified by the level of cover you have chosen.
