I've booked a weeks holiday in Iceland in mid sept

If the ash cloud means my flights don't run what can I claim back?

a) Flights cost?

b) Hostels cost?

c) Hire car (pre paid already) ?

You'll have to check with your travel insurers I believe

Thanks. Sainsbury quoted me £17 for a week

They didn't even ask if I was going to Iceland

I read about how only 1/5 insurers cover it on The Independent? or was it The Telegraph...

I would double check if I was you though
