Holiday Insurance

At Omega Breaks we are committed to ensuring you are taken care of every step of the way, from the day you book, through to the last day of your holiday. Occasionally passengers fall ill or have an accident whilst on holiday preventing them from travelling home with the coach or on the return flight or requiring medical care when abroad. This may impact you financially, it is company policy that all our customers hold some form of travel insurance, not necessarily the insurance Omega Breaks can offer when purchasing one of our tours.

A holiday insurance scheme is available for all passengers travelling on our holidays arranged with ETI – International Travel Protection (ERV), the UK branch of Europäische Reiseverscherung AG, who are Licensed by the Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (BAFIN – www.ba n.de) and approved by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA – www.fca.org. uk) to undertake insurance business in the UK. Should you wish to take advantage of this holiday insurance please include the appropriate premium when booking your holiday.
