Bought travel insurance with EasyJet Collinson group but they cancelled the flight

We bought it with them and it is with Collinson. EasyJet cancelled the flight but I found another airline to take us on the same dates. Would the insurance still cover us? I can't see anything about it being only for EasyJet flight....

    Perhaps just some missing punctuation, but when you say you bought travel insurance "with EasyJet Collinson group", do you simply mean that your EasyJet booking journey included a purchase of insurance from (the unrelated third party) Collinson?  If so, then, as you say, the policy shouldn't be impacted by a change of airline....

    It's always wise to buy your own insurance.
    Trips provided by a holiday company often are farmed out to local companies and not covered by the insurance you have.
    Also if a day trip is cancelled and you go into town to book locally you are not covered then.

    I'm always surprised how seldom this crops up having answered questions on trips abroad for many years it's a very important point that is not made evident by the trip company - and can be vital.

    The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well
