Schedule Airline Failure Insurance (SAFI Insurance)

As more and more holidaymakers are choosing to arrange their flights and hotel bookings separately, make sure you don’t get caught out by airline failures.

In recent years, several airlines have gone out of business and travellers have been left out of pocket.

InsureandGo travel insurance can protect you if an airline on which your trip depends collapses due to insolvency and financial failure.


What is scheduled airline failure insurance?

Scheduled airline failure insurance covers you if an airline on which you’ve independently booked flights (not as part of a package holiday) stops trading due to insolvency.  SAFI can cover financial losses if your flights are cancelled and you can’t get a refund, or can pay for a return flight if you’re stuck abroad and no alternative return flight is offered.


We can cover your kids for free!

Why do I need SAFI insurance?

Airlines can and do go bust, so it’s important to have scheduled airline failure insurance to cover you if your flights are suddenly cancelled.

The insurance will cover you for non-refundable flight tickets in the event of cancellation before you travel, or the extra costs of a one-way airfare (similar to the class of the original flight ticket) to complete your return journey if the airline fails while you’re away.


Does my InsureandGo policy cover SAFI insurance?

Cover for airline failures is included with all InsureandGo travel insurance policies. The amount of cover varies depending on the policy level chosen.


What can I claim for with Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance?

If you find yourself in an unfortunate event of claiming for SAFI Insurance, you can claim for:

  • The cost of unusable flight tickets if the airline goes bankrupt before you travel.
  • The cost of replacement flights if your airline goes bankrupt while you’re away and no alternative flights are offered.


Who is SAFI Insurance useful for?

As it is becoming more commonplace for travellers to book flights and hotels separately, scheduled airline failure insurance can be of benefit to those who:

  • Have booked flights and holiday packages separately.
  • Have made all the flight, hotel and travel arrangements themselves.
