The airline easyJet has announced that it is to launch an in-flight travel insurance service.
easyjet has said that the move is in response to research which found that one in five UK holidaymakers set off on their holidays without insurance, which in easyJet’s case equates to around 20 to 30 people per flight.
Passengers in-flight can choose from a five-day or 14-day adult single trip European policy, which covers medical emergencies, loss of baggage and passport, personal accident and personal liability . Prices start from £15.00 per person. Customers are then given a pack, which includes the policy wording and other important information such as medical assistance and claims telephone numbers.
The carrier’s head of ancillaries, Nick Hughes, said: “The launch of our in-flight insurance service is part of our ongoing commitment to providing easyJet customers with convenient, quality cover that comes at a price to suit their budget.”
