This insurance substantially reduces the charges you may have to pay if you need to change or cancel the booking within 42 days. The cost is just 2% of the total cost of the booking. So, for example, if the apartment costs €200 it will add just €4 to the booking.
ACI must be requested at the time of booking and cannot be added afterwards.
With ACI all alterations will be free of administration charges at all times. Without ACI the administration fee is €10 per change. Please note, however, that if, as a result of the alterations, the number of nights is reduced, the property requested is changed or the dates requested are changed it may be treated as a cancellation or a partial cancellation.
In the event of cancellation, charges may apply. Costs will depend on various factors including circumstances and the amount we are charged by the suppliers. In all cases the charges will not exceed the 'up to percentage' shown below:-
If you already have, or intend to obtain, travel insurance you may consider that you do not need ACI. However, you should bear in mind that travel insurance will almost never cover you for alterations and will only cover cancellations due to serious illness or death of a member of the party or close relative. And then it will be subject to an excess of (usually) minimum of £50, but probably much more, per person. With ACI you do not need a reason to ask for a change or to cancel, you can simply have changed your mind, and no excess applies.
