The specialist travel insurer for action-inclined travellers, Dogtag, has increased its range of cover to include financial failure protection of end suppliers.
The firm took the decision to extend cover due to increased awareness that independent travellers were not covered under the Governments ATOL when booking component parts of travel separately.
Mike Welby, director at Dogtag, said: “We are known for extreme sports and covering pursuits which other providers would not dream of, however we have realised that a lot of our customers are building their own travel itinerary and therefore providing financial security to them is just as important as our sports versatility, especially in the current financial environment.”
The cover will now include protection for insolvency of airlines, hotels, hostels, car hire companies, excursion providers, theme parks and any other end supplier. The section is provided by International Passenger protection Ltd (IPP), who are specialists in providing this niche cover.
