“Flip flops? Check. Passport? Check. Travel insurance? I’ll do it later”.
Despite being something that most of us leave until last minute (hands up everyone who has purchased at the departure gate), it’s really important that you buy your policy after you’ve put money down on your trip to ensure you’re making the most of your cover.
Have you been taking advantage of the great deals on offer from travel providers like On The Beach, British Airways or TUI?
Our Buy When You Book campaign has launched to make people more aware of the benefits of buying their cover earlier.
You can cancel for FREE if you’ve only paid your trip deposit, meaning you don’t have to pay any excess if you’re only claiming for the cost of your holiday deposit*.
Anything can happen between booking a holiday and travelling (we think 2020 has shown us to expect the unexpected), and whilst most travel insurance policies include cover for cancellation, you need cover in place when you book your trip so your deposit or booking is protected.
If you’re already planning your next trip, make sure you get travel insurance as soon as you put down your deposit. With single trip policies, you’ll be protected for the cost of cancellation from the moment you pay up until the point that you leave for your trip.
Our cover starts from just £6.97*, and includes the following benefits:
Zero Excess on Deposit-Only Claims – Terms & Conditions
This offer only extends to deposit-only claims. Should you need to claim for the full cost of your holiday, the excess applicable on your main policy will still apply.
If you’re anything like us, then you buy a whole new wardrobe every time you go on holiday, plus all the essentials like straighteners, chargers, cosmetics, those fancy sunnies you bought in duty free last yer, the list goes on. This is why all of our Alpha policies come with £1,500 Personal Possessions cover, in case they get lost, stolen or damaged on your trip. We even include some £ for the purchase of essential items if your luggage is delayed reaching you on your trip! Check out your policy wordings for all the info.
Holidays can be pretty pricey at times, so if you have to cancel for reasons outside of your control, like a medical emergency, you’ll need to have the correct cancellation cover in place. Alpha understand this, and we don’t want you to be less a holiday AND your hard-earned and saved up cash; this is why we have £1,250 cancellation cover per insured person in our policies. Check out your policy wordings to see what’s covered under this.
If you’re unfortunate enough to become injured on your trip, we’re here to help. From our emergency assistance team, all the way through to legal support. All of our Alpha policies offer a free 30 minute consultation with a legal expert who can advise on the next steps as well as up to £10,000 of legal expenses, if you’re injured whilst abroad. Check your policy wordings for more info.
