The cost of travelling without insurance can be high, not only financially but in terms of disruption to your family holiday. With almost 50 years experience of arranging self-drive family holidays we think we know many of the pitfalls that befall our clients when travelling in Europe so we have selected a reputable insurer who offers a wide range of policy options. The special policies we have agreed with Travel Insurance Facilities are specifically designed to cover the problems encountered on self-drive holidays.
We strongly recommend that you read the links below, in particular to see what exclusions apply and whether a policy is suitable for you. There is also a short summary of the insurance policy at the bottom of this page.
Important information about your insurance
It is a condition of booking with Canvas Holidays that, at the time of booking, you either give us details of the insurance cover you have in place (which must provide the same level of cover as our policy) or that you take our insurance.
Please see our booking terms and conditions.
Whilst it is your responsibility to obtain adequate insurance for all members in your party, we, as experts in overseas travel, will be very happy to help you meet this responsibility with our specially tailored travel and motor breakdown insurance packages which are simple to understand and sensibly priced.
We do not give advice or make personal recommendations in relation to any travel insurance product. You must make your own decision as to whether any insurance product we offer is suitable for your requirements. See the important information about your travel insurance for more information
Please see Policy Details above for the exclusions that apply to these policies.
If you wish to cancel your insurance policy you may do so within 14 days of booking unless you have already travelled, made a claim or intend to make a claim.
