Cancellation Only Travel Insurance

Please be aware, by taking out cancellation only insurance you are opting to be covered by Section 1- ‘Cancellation or Curtailment’; As summarised below, please see the policy wording for full terms and conditions and exclusions. (Cover under this section starts from the date shown on your booking invoice or the date travel is booked, whichever is the later).

You are covered up to the amount shown in the benefits schedule for your proportionate share of the unused travel and accommodation costs (including unused pre-booked excursions up to a value of £100) that have been paid or where there is a contract to pay that cannot be recovered from anywhere else if it is necessary to cancel or curtail the planned trip because of any of the following events involving you or a travelling companion that first occur during the period of insurance:-

  • the accidental injury, illness or death of you, your travelling companion, your business colleague or person with whom you intended to stay.
  • the accidental injury, illness or death of your relative or that of a travelling companion, business colleague or person with whom you intended to stay.
  • receipt of a summons for jury service, being subpoenaed as a court witness or being placed in compulsory quarantine.
  • unexpected requirement for emergency and unavoidable duty as a member of the armed forces, police, fire, nursing, ambulance or coastguard services resulting in cancellation of previously agreed leave.
  • redundancy, provided that you are entitled to payment under the current redundancy payments legislation and that at the time of booking your trip you had no reason to believe that you would be made redundant.
  • your presence being required to make your property safe and secure following fire, flood or burglary that causes serious damage at your home within 48 hours prior to your departure, or whilst you are away.
  • your car becoming unusable as a result of theft, fire or accident within 7 days prior of your departure. This only applies if you are planning to go on a self-drive trip in the car.
