Is insurance included in my holiday?

We’ve listened carefully to the feedback from our valued customers and taken on board that as seasoned travellers, many of you may already have an annual travel policy. With this in mind, we have decided to no longer include insurance in the price of most of our holidays. The exception to this is our Ocean Cruise Collection which will still include the holiday insurance option. Should you require holiday insurance, we can offer you a policy at a competitive price.

Our insurer is PJ Hayman & Co Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Your certificate of insurance will be sent with your holiday confirmation invoice and it is your responsibility to read it carefully and call PJ Hayman & Co Limited on 02392 419 070 if you have any queries.
