A chance to win an iPad - by selling the new cruise cover to their customers

Each time a policy is issued, the agent will be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad 2 and Smart Cover, worth more than £400.

Holiday Extras has seen an excellent response to its cruise insurance since it went on sale last month and now the company is offering travel agents a chance to win an iPad – by selling the new cruise cover to their customers.

The policy is specifically tailored to cruise passengers and covers delays, missed departures, missed ports, delayed baggage and missed excursions, which a customer has booked but cannot attend.

Customers can choose different levels of cover, with single trip and annual policies available. Prices start from just £20.24 for a three-day European holiday.

Holiday Extras’ head of insurance, Andrea Clayton, explained: “People may not be aware that ordinary travel insurance is often totally unsuitable for cruise holidays. If for any reason the customer can’t go on the cruise, ordinary travel insurance often won’t even cover the costs incurred, whereas our policy can cover customers for up to £25,000.

“Our policy also provides cover if the customer misses the departure through no fault of their own.

“An iPad 2 is a fantastic incentive for selling a truly unique product.”
