We strongly advise that you take out personal travel insurance for the trip. We have arranged comprehensive travel insurance with Wrightsure Services (Hampshire) Limited. You may use an alternative insurer but you must advise us. The insurance should cover medical and repatriation costs, personal injury, loss of baggage and cancellation charges. If you do not have adequate insurance and require our assistance during your holiday, we reserve the right to reclaim from you any medical repatriation or other expenses which we may incur on your behalf which would otherwise have been met by insurers. You must advise us if you use an alternative insurer, the policy number and 24 hour contact number.

Because we believe it is important for you to be adequately insured, to provide protection and peace of mind, all clients who travel on our holidays will be offered an optional free Travel Insurance Policy.
