Scheduled airline failure is included on all of our Single Trip Travel Insurance, Annual Travel Insurance and Backpacker Travel Insurance policies.

All travel insurance policies include Scheduled Airline Failure, as standard. This provides financial protection in the event that your airline or other holiday end supplier becomes insolvent.

Flight insurance - Scheduled airline failure

When you book the individual elements of your holiday, such as flights and accommodation, directly with the end supplier, you don't automatically get the same level of financial protection as you would if you booked a package holiday through a tour operator or travel agent. This is when having Scheduled Airline Failure cover as part of your travel insurance becomes important.

If you have booked parts of your holiday directly with the end supplier, or booked a flight direct with an airline, it is important to make sure that you have flight insurance or Scheduled Airline Failure to cover you if your airline or other holiday supplier becomes insolvent.

Our Scheduled Airline Failure cover is designed to offer appropriate travel insurance cover to holiday makers who prefer to book their holidays directly with the end supplier, rather than booking a package.

Scheduled airline failure cover and benefits:

  • Scheduled airline failure up to £1,500

If the insolvency occurs before departure:

Cover is provided for irrecoverable sums lost as a result of the insolvency or financial failure of a travel or accommodation end supplier, with whom you had made a booking and paid in advance, for elements of your holiday which don't form part of a holiday package.

If the insolvency occurs after departure:

Cover is provided for additional pro rata costs incurred in replacing that part of the travel arrangements to a similar standard to that originally booked or if curtailment of the holiday is unavoidable - the cost of return transportation to the United Kingdom to a similar standard to that originally booked.

Scheduled airline failure provides much more than just the insolvency of an airline, it provides cover for the insolvency or financial failure of the following end suppliers:

  • Scheduled airlines
  • Hotels
  • Car ferries
  • Villa's abroad & cottages in the UK
  • Railway journeys
