Hi basically I need insurance in case I fail my university exams and cant go away for an already booked flight to bangkok in September because i have to resit. Anyone know the best place to get this? Also maybe it wouldbe worth combining other aspects of travel insurance with it?

    Mainstream travel insurance won't cover it as it wouldn't be considered an emergency (usually has to be medical).

    Dont know any insurers that will cover cancellation on the basis of exams. Most cancellations only cover things like:

    1) Death/ serious illness or injury to you or immediate family
    2) Required for court duty
    3) Serious damage to your home within a week of departure
    4) Unemployment
    5) Emergency service employee required for emergency duties
    6) Over 12 hours delay in departure
    7) FCO advise against all travel to your destination.
