Travel Insurance Protection For Bad Weather

In cases of extreme or adverse weather where you have had to delay your travel arrangements or miss your departure, your insurance cover can help.

Your Single Trip, Annual Multi Trip and Backpacker trip types provide cover for protection against bad weather. After you have selected your type of policy, you can then decide on your desired cover level either Essential, Essential Plus or Superior cover. Once you've booked your travel insurance policy, you can enjoy the following benefits based on your cover level:

  • Travel Delay - up to £200 (NO excess)
  • Missed Departure - up to £1,000 (£75 excess)

Unexpected Weather and Winter Sports

The weather can be unpredictable and for this reason we also offer cover for Winter Sports should the conditions not be right for skiing, this can easily be added to your travel insurance policy as you make your way through the booking process. Essential, Essential Plus and Superior cover levels (with additional Winter Sports Cover) provide you with piste closure cover of up to £500, when you need to seek an alternative ski piste or resort.
