Cover for Airspace Closure 

During the 2010 volcanic ash cloud disruption, the European Union were forced to shut down airspace, despite widespread protests from airlines. This resulted in thousands of holidaymakers unable to go on holiday or left stranded abroad wondering how they would get home.

In August 2014, there again were fears of a repeat of the ash cloud chaos. Covered2go provides an extension that is available on all policies which offers volcanic ash cloud travel insurance / airspace closure protection. Whether you’re planning a short weekend break or you have booked the holiday of a lifetime, you may wish to consider airspace closure protection just incase there is volcanic ash disruption.
