HolidayExtras.com urges summer holidaymakers to be prepared

With the summer holidays now in full swing, HolidayExtras.com has a range of hassle-free extras that will protect savvy travellers from unexpected events.

The award-winning travel insurance provider offers competitive cover – single-trip and annual – to suit customers ranging from sun-seekers to adrenalin sports junkies, starting from £9.01 per person; as well as additional Natural Catastrophe cover that minimises losses caused by earthquake, tsunami, flooding and other natural disasters, from £3.25 per person.

For 99p, travellers can gain extra peace of mind and buy cancellation protection for their airport parking booking; and airport hotel reservation protection costs just £2.49.

The unpredictable financial situation in Europe is a cause for concern for many summer holidaymakers. HolidayExtras.com offers the FairFX currency card for free – customers pay £10 to load the card initially and it can then be topped up and used as a MasterCard debit card anywhere in the world that accepts MasterCard – providing safe, easy access to holiday funds.

Anthony Clarke Cowell, Associate Merchandising Director at HolidayExtras.com, said: “You spend a lot of time planning, and paying for, your summer holiday so it’s well worth devoting a few more minutes to protecting it.”
