In November 2018, The Times newspaper published an investigation into Travel Insurance Facilities (TIF), which provides insurance for Holiday Extras. TIF refutes the allegations and is contesting them through the courts. Until this case is resolved, we have removed our ratings of TIF's products.
Holiday Extras is a UK-based online company specialising in travel insurance and travel insurance add-ons. This includes standard add-ons such as winter sports and wedding cover, and more niche add-ons such as gadget insurance, extreme sports cover, car hire excess cover, and increased cancellation cover.
Their single and annual travel insurance policies are underwritten by TIF, however their gadget insurance is underwritten by AmTrust, and their vehicle car hire excess cover is underwritten by Allianz.
Their headquarters are based in Kent, UK and they have been selling travel insurance for over 25 years.
