Cancelsure insurance logo
Insurance specialists, Rothwell & Towler are reminding people to protect their UK residential course and learning holidays against cancellation and curtailment with specially designed residential course insurance, Cancelsure.
People choosing a UK based residential based 'learning holiday' this year have many options available, from painting master classes to fine dining cooking experiences and from yoga training retreats to swimming and outdoor based activity courses, there is something for everyone. Holidays like this can cost more than £300 per person for just a few days, as they include tuition and training and often accommodation and meals as well.
The cancellation of courses, especially at the last minute, can be costly. People forced to cancel a pre booked course are likely lose the deposit and, in some cases, people may be expected to pay the whole cost, depending on the holiday company's booking terms. Cancelsure course cancellation and curtailment insurance covers people who are going on any kind of pre-booked or residential course in the UK.
Cancelsure insurance policies will meet the cost of pre-booked fees if the individual is forced to cancel the course, pull out at the last minute or cut it short. In some cases the insurer may be also able to pay for unexpected additional expenses if the traveller is forced to return home early.
Managing Partner of Rothwell & Towler, Martin Rothwell said, "We are seeing that UK holidays, combined with residential learning, is as a popular alternative to traditional holiday and we are expecting this trend to continue. Getting insurance for holidays is not just about travel insurance for foreign holidays, it's about protecting yourself and your money for any form of holiday."
Cancelsure insurance policies have no health restrictions or age limits, so if you have been undergoing treatment for cancer, have medical problems or have a serious medical condition, you can still benefit from cover.
The cost of UK residential course cancellation insurance is generally based on the overall cost of a holiday. A holiday costing up to £300 would cost in the region of £24* to insure against unexpected cancellation or curtailment for someone aged up to 55, or £27* for someone aged 56 to 100.
Full details of Rothwell & Towler's Cancelsure insurance can be found at the Cancelsure insurance website or by calling 0845 071 3929.
