Holiday Extras head of travel insurance partnerships and business development Ashley Close has left the company.

Close worked at Holiday Extras for nine years in various roles including partnership development manager and travel insurance partnerships lead.

He left the business earlier this month to take up a role at tifgroup insurance.

Close will be replaced by Peter Smith who joined the company four years ago, initially as head of airline business development.

A spokesman for Holiday Extras said: “We can confirm that Ashley Close has left Holiday Extras. He was offered a position with our underwriter tifgroup and, whilst we were sorry to see him leave the company after nine years, we wish him well for the future.”
