At Bird Holidays we believe that your safety is very important. It is a requirement, when booking your holiday, that you arrange travel insurance with Holiday Extras, or alternatively arrange a policy with another insurance company. 

We insist that your policy must provide for emergency medical expenses (minimum 1,000,000) and must have a 24 hour emergency telephone number. The extent of additional cover, such as insuring your belongings, personal liability and cancellation cover is a matter for you to choose. 

In order to arrange a policy with Holiday Extras, you should telephone 0800 093 1900 and quote AD205.


A summary of Classic Cover arranged with Holiday Extras Ltd and underwritten by Mapfre Assistance is given below. This summary is ONLY intended to outline the cover provided, and cover is subject to change after production of our brochure. The certificate itself defines the cover and exclusions in precise terms. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. Should you find that this insurance cover is insufficient for your needs simply return the original certificate within 14 days of issuing or prior to travel (whichever is the sooner). The premium will be refunded provided no claim has been made.


Please note: This insurance can only be provided for people who live in the United Kingdom.
