Top tips to secure extra protection when booking flights
1) Book Travel Insurance with Monarch
Booking travel insurance (single trip or annual) with Monarch (supplied by our partner Rock Insurance Services) will automatically cover each policy holder up to £500 for replacement ticket cover (with no excess to pay).
You can purchase our travel insurance as part of your scheduled flight booking here at monarch.co.uk or you can purchase directly from our travel insurance website. Read our full travel insurance policy wording. Don't forget the best way to save is to buy an annual policy if you travel more than once a year.
2) Book scheduled flights on a Credit Card or Visa Debit card
If your flights cost over £100 and you pay for them using a credit card (Visa / Mastercard) you'll be entitled to a refund in the event of scheduled airline failure (this is protected under the terms of the Consumer Credit Act). You'll need to contact your card issuer to make the claim. If your flights cost less than £100 you may still be entitled to a refund, but you'll need to check with your card issuer and claim in good time.
If you pay using a Visa Debit Card you should also be able claim a refund using the 'Visa Debit Card Chargeback Scheme'. Contact your bank or Visa for more details of this scheme.
