Enhanced Travel Disruption Cover

Any number of events can ground flights and put holidays on hold. If your trip’s delayed or abandoned, our Enhanced Travel 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 and Commonwealth Office (FCO) 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.
