  • The cost of cancellation if you get Covid and are unable to go on the holiday you've planned
  • The cost of cancelling if you're a "close contact" of someone who tested positive and get told to self-isolate
  • Cancellation caused by the UK government advising against travel to your destination, or because of other mandatory restrictions on movements
