Enhanced Trip Disruption Cover

Any number of events can ground flights and put holidays on hold. If your trip’s delayed or abandoned, our Enhanced Trip Disruption Cover could let you claim for costs that.


  • Delay and cancellation cover after 24 hours
  • You’re also covered for disruption in transit
  • No upper age limit and all medical conditions considered

Remember: check the latest Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and local government travel advice before you go. Your cover won’t count if you travel against it.

Protection for airspace closure

Few of us can forget the holiday mayhem that dogged travellers when drone sightings closed Gatwick’s airspace. If this happens to you then getting compensation might be a priority.

So we’ve got airspace closure cover to keep things simple. If airspace closure grounds flights for more than 24 hours, you can make a claim for abandonment. If you’re already in the air and this stops you from landing at your destination or returning to the UK, you can claim for additional travel and accommodation costs then too.

Delay and Cancellation after 24 hours

If you get past the 24-hour delay point and decide that you’d rather go home and put the whole ordeal behind you, we’ll cover your pre-paid travel and accommodation costs. >


Disruption in transit

Being stuck on a plane isn’t everyone’s idea of fun, but it happens. We’ll cover you for each full day you are delayed for any unexpected travel and accommodation expenses you incur. >

Medical Emergencies

24/7 medical emergency line

In a medical emergency, the last thing you need is delay, especially after a serious event. So our medical emergency helpline, based in UK call centres, is open 24/7 – whenever you need it. >

All medical conditions considered

If you have medical conditions, this should not be a reason to hold you back from exploring the world. Having the right cover in place, should the unfortunate happen, will give you peace of mind while on your adventures.

It's important that you declare all your medical conditions and any medication that you're taking.
