FREE Travel Disruption Cover - with Annual Multi-Trip policies

No one likes to think about cancelling a well-earned break, or being out of pocket if travel plans unexpectedly change. That's why with all of our travel policies we give you the option of adding Travel Disruption cover, which covers you for delays or cancellations to your outbound and inbound journeys.

Travel disruption covers things like:

  • Missed departure to or from your holiday destination, including connecting travel - meaning you are delayed or have to cancel your departure
  • Insolvency of your accommodation provider - meaning you need to find somewhere else to stay while on holiday
  • Trip abandonment or cancellation after a 12 hours delay - due to delays in flight or onward travel
  • Additional travel expenses required by you to get back home - in the event you have to cancel or abandon your trip

When you buy an Annual Multi-Trip policy direct from RAC Travel Insurance, you get this cover for FREE for the first 12 months!
