Jet2.com Launches The UK’s Cheapest Holiday Insurance – Just £5!

14th December 2011

  • Just £5 per person per week* - less than the price of a bottle of wine
  • New insurance policy  expected to be a game changer for the travel insurance market
  • All the cover a traveller needs, none of the expensive extras that they don’t

In a bold move the North’s leading leisure airline, Jet2.com, has launched the UK’s cheapest holiday insurance product, priced at just £5 per person for a week* - a move that is expected to rock the travel insurance market.

Travel insurance for just £5!

Each year millions of travellers venture abroad without taking our insurance cover, this new policy means that for less than the price of a bottle of wine holidaymakers can travel with the peace of mind of having comprehensive insurance cover if things go wrong. Jet2.com is best known for its flights to city, sun and ski destinations from the North, Scotland and Northern Ireland - this move is the leisure airline’s latest move in its strategy to offer customers great value, recession busting travel products.  

Jet2.com, reviewed the travel insurance market and the cover levels – looking at maximum claim values and set its new policy terms to exceed these levels but not so much that the customer was paying for coverage levels that they would never require. The new policy can be bought online at www.jet2insurance.com  – there are also 14 day and over 65 options. The purchaser does not need to be travelling with Jet2.com or sister package holidays specialist, Jet2holidays, making the policy available to all.

Paul Humphreys, Retail Director of Jet2.com, said, 

“Many insurers needlessly bump up their cover beyond that the customer will ever need, just so they can charge them more. We have looked at cover levels and this new insurance product is all the cover you need and for just £5 – which is such good value that it would be reckless to travel without insurance.

“What many people don’t realise is that the best time to take out travel insurance is prior to, or at, the time of booking as that way the policy covers the period leading up to the trip and not just the trip itself. With the facility to purchase the cover online it can be done at any time 24 hours a day.”

£5 travel insurance!

This insurance, coupled with Jet2holidays £60 low deposit means that cash strapped holidaymakers can book now and take advantage of the great early bird prices for sun and city breaks in 2012.

The key cover levels of the Jet2insurance are:

  • £2m medical cover
  • £500 per person cancellation
  • £750 per person baggage
  • Travel document cover
