    Personal travel insurance

    The cost of travelling without insurance can be high, not only financially but in terms of disruption to your family holiday. With more than 50 years of experience arranging self-drive family holidays 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 AWP P&C SA 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

    Booking conditions

    We consider personal travel insurance to be essential for overseas bookings. Whilst it is not a condition to purchase Travel Insurance it is our duty to ensure you have considered travel insurance for your trip and the risk of travelling without it.

    You will find details of the travel insurance policies we offer below. By booking through us it does not mean you must take out our Travel Insurance. However we will check that you have considered the risks of traveling without it as we cannot be held responsible for any such losses that might arise which a travel insurance policy might have provided a means of resolution, protection or financial compensation.

    In the event that you take out travel insurance with us, it is important that you carefully read and understand the main characteristics of the policy, including its limitations, conditions and exclusions and that you keep such details with you whilst on your trip.

    Although we will reasonably endeavour to ensure you purchase a suitable travel insurance policy, it is your responsibility to ensure that you check the policy is adequate for your particular needs and that you have declared all factors that might influence your risk including any pre-existing medical conditions.

    We do not check alternative insurance policies as part of assessing a customer’s demands and needs. We rely upon customer’s answering questions honestly and with reasonable care. Acting carelessly or deliberately making a misrepresentation may leave you with no insurance protection and insurers may not pay a part or your entire claim and may cancel your policy.

    Please see our booking terms and conditions.

    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.
