Scheduled Airline Failure

In light of the recent events and concerns surrounding airline bankruptcy, we are pleased to confirm that our Standard, Premier** and Premier Plus** policies have now been extended to offer Scheduled Airline Failure Cover.

Scheduled Airline Failure Cover ensures you are protected if the airline you have booked your flights with declares bankruptcy. In the event of insolvency of the scheduled airline, you are insured for up to £1500 per person to pay for alternative travel arrangements*.

The cover means that if you are away and your scheduled airline declares bankruptcy, you would be covered to purchase an equivalent replacement flight in order to come home. If you haven’t yet travelled, Scheduled Airline Failure Cover will pay for irrecoverable flight costs should you have to cancel your trip due to your scheduled airline’s insolvency.

Our quotation process will clearly show you which of our policies include Scheduled Airline Failure Cover.

If you have any queries about Scheduled Airline Failure Cover, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can find our contact details on our Contact Us page.
