Coach Holiday Travel Insurance
From 1st January 2009 the FSA (Financial Services Authority) regulated the sale of Travel Insurance sold alongside coach holidays. For a variety of reasons, we decided not to continue to sell travel insurance alongside our tours.
Although we strongly recommend that you are adequately insured when you travel on any of our holidays, it is not a condition of travel for our UK mainland tours that you have insurance cover. However, for all other tours (Continental, Channel Isles etc) insurance cover is compulsory*. Please remember that Travel Insurance covers you for cancellation charges (please refer to our cancellation terms below) and other losses, not just medical treatment.
Travel Insurance may be purchased directly from the following sources:
Towergate Coach Holiday Travel Insurance
Please quote “Boon’s Calibre Travel” when purchasing travel insurance from Towergate
On-line at www.towergatepip.b2ctravel.co.uk/customer/index.aspx or by telephone on 01371-705 159
The Post Office (from your local branch or online at www.postoffice.co.uk)
Most major supermarkets, insurance brokers, on-line comparison sites etc
This list is for your information only, Boon’s Calibre Travel is not in a position to recommend one company above another, however, Towergate Travel are travel insurance specialists in the coaching industry.
Depending on your circumstances, you may wish to purchase either yearly cover or single-trip cover. Whichever you choose, we will require details of your policy, either when you pay the final balance for your tour, or at least 10 days before travel. Regardless of whether you purchase travel insurance, or decide to travel uninsured, we will require you to sign a disclaimer, which you will be sent with your booking confirmation.
SUMMARY & NOTES:
For Boon’s Calibre Travel UK mainland tours: Travel Insurance is strongly recommended, but not compulsory.
For all other Boon’s Calibre Travel tours: Travel Insurance is compulsory*.
*If, for some reason, you are unable to obtain travel insurance cover for non-UK tours please call us to discuss the matter
Please be aware, that once purchased, single-trip travel insurance premiums are often non-refundable, except for the statutory cooling-off period. This means that should we have to cancel a tour for any reason, you may not receive a refund of your insurance premium from your insurers, however, you may be able to transfer your insurance cover to another tour. We suggest that you clarify this when purchasing single-trip travel insurance
Towergate Travel have agreed that if we have to cancel a tour or alter a tour departure date for any reason, they will transfer single-trip policies purchased from them to another of our tours of a similar period, duration and cost.
