All policies are underwritten by Axa.

An excess of £50 applies to the Silver and Gold policies, customers have the option to remove that for an extra premium. The platinum policy carries no excess fees.

Many travel insurance companies exclude gadgets so Cedar Tree's gadget limits set it apart from rivals. It also has a gadget extension policy that can be bought as an add-on, the most expensive option gives up to £3,000 of cover with a £1,000 single item limit.

Cedar Tree describes itself as a premium insurer and its cover appears to back that up. It may mean that prices are higher than other insurers with lower cover limits.

Cover for travel disruption, winter sports, natural catastrophe, golf, wedding, cruise and business is available for an extra premium.
