This fantastic new policy extends to UK trips and events the high-quality, low-cost cover we are already providing to customers with our Europe and worldwide travel insurance.

The new policy covers days out, short breaks and attending events within the UK. Customers can purchase it as an add-on to Direct Travel's annual multi-trip insurance.

Taking out the UK Day and Break Cover means individuals and families can claim for pre-paid tickets, accommodation, travel expenses, activities or entertainment if they have to cancel or cut short a trip or event.

Whether they have booked for the Cup Final or the Grand National, the Albert Hall or the O2, rollercoasters or a sunbed, wild Scotland or elegant Oxford, the new UK policy offers cover if plans are disrupted.
