Choosing Your Insurance

At Running Travels we believe that your safety and holiday enjoyment are very important. Things can go wrong on holiday. You could fall ill or have an accident; you could have money or luggage stolen; your visit might be cancelled or cut short through injury or illness; your family may need to fly out to be with you if there is a serious incident. All these risks and more can be covered by taking out travel insurance.

Your policy should pay out if you need to cancel or cut short a trip because, for example, you fall ill. It should cover pre-paid expenses, such as excursions, and any extra costs incurred in getting home. Check your policy documents to see what would be covered: accident, illness, pregnancy unknown when you buy the policy, jury service or witness summons, etc. Cover may also be provided if you are needed at home because of fire, storm or flood, or if you are required by the police to come home following a burglary.

Some policies also cover cancellation arising from you being made redundant or if a strike or bad weather affects the departure of a flight or ship. You need a policy with sufficient cover to refund the full cost of your holiday. Check your policy for details. We at Running Travels recommend you to take out cancellation insurance. As our deposits are non-refundable you should be insured for cancellation at time of booking.
