We have Nationwide cover. To me it reads if the provider has offered voucher and you decline if the trip then gets cancelled later then you wouldn't be covered for cancellation of flight not operating.
We have DIY holiday and I've made my peace that we may lose in excess of two grand.
I'm due to pay Disney balance in June but as we booked direct we can cancelled 8 days in advance.
The virgin holiday car hire, hotels and internal flight to New York I might not get back.
Our flight is a virgin reward flight that I can cancel 24 hours in advance and get taxes back. Fingers crossed they will still be operating.

It doesn't help with accommodation but I'm sure I read somewhere that park tickets are being extended for use in 2021?

We have the nationwide flex account travel insurance.
If you read the policy document under the cancellation section itís states you must seek a refund or credit from the provider and they wonít cover if a refund/credit is offered.
I understand your frustration, we are in the same boat. Deposit only for a fly drive with BA who havenít cancelled our May fights yet.
Donít really want to pay anymore in the hope we will get it back if(when) the flight is cancelled, wonít be able to use a voucher. Iíve pretty much accepted we will lose the £300 deposit.

Page 21 of the policy document

ĒAny claim where compensation is available from your transport operator (forexampleduetoEUPassengerRights) unless you provide a document from them explaining why no compensation was givenď

Hi, sorry I don't quite understand the way you see it.
If the provider offers a voucher and the "new" booking then gets cancelled then we wouldn't be covered for that booking?
What if we decline the voucher because we cannot use it in the required time frame? For example, Legoland say we need to use the voucher by christmas but we cannot take any leave from work by then so refuse the voucher as it's no use.

Agree, it is stressful.
I would be OK if each provider would give vouchers for use the following year but I can't see that happening. The fact that we need to wait until probably late June to find out what will happen takes away all the fun of planning and preparing. Then to add the factor of forking out another £7k before the holiday without any clarification on the insurance just make the whole holiday seem stressful.

I donít agree with them and Iím in the same position. It would be better if (BA in my case) wasnít offering anything then I could claim from Nationwide.
All Iím saying is it shouldnít be a surprise as itís quite clear in the policy document.

Definitely stressful, I currently canít cancel anything although I know we wonít be going. Then our universal annual passes run out in May (would of just got this holiday covered) so to go next we will either need to renew or buy more tickets.

I think if the operator offers vouchers and you decline the offer and kept existing booking then that existing booking wouldn't be covered for end supplier failure.
Using vouchers would be new booking so wouldn't have corona virus cover. Looks like you can only keep the corona virus cover of you reschedule.

So basically we would be screwed!
If we refuse the vouchers as they are no use due to work/leave restrictions we wouldn't be able to claim anything through insurance for the original booking.
We would be praying the supplier will offer a refund instead (not likely for things like villa bookings when the T&C's recommend taking out insurance!).
What's the point having insurance when a unusable voucher voids any claim.

You could ask (not sure if they would do it) for a letter stating they are unable to offer the voucher as in your case it would be unusable.
Nationwide will cover in this instance.
