24-Hour Emergency Assistance

If you’ve lost your bags, your camera has been stolen, or your flight’s been cancelled – we’ve got you covered. All our policies include access to a UK-based 24-Hour Emergency Assistance Helpline, offering worldwide multi-lingual assistance – which means that you can be sure of our support, and rely on us to be there anytime, anywhere.
Book Online: It’s quick, easy, safe and secure

Booking your holiday insurance online with Essential Travel is quick, easy, safe and secure. Our policies can be tailored to your individual needs, so you only pay for the cover you actually need. Plus our standard policy can be extended to include skiing, snowboarding and a wide range of adventure activities.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions covered

A medical condition doesn’t mean you can’t travel. You will be asked four simple questions at stage four of the booking process to assess the right kind of coverage for you.
Book with Confidence – Essential Travel and AXA

Essential Travel works with AXA Insurance UK plc, the UK’s No.1 travel insurer (Mintel report August 2006) to provide you with complete peace of mind on your holiday.
