Travel tips

When you take yourself off on holiday it is very important to be insured. Life is full of strange occurrences and you can guarantee that it will be something totally unexpected which will catch you out – hence the need for decent holiday insurance.

One of the biggest problems with falling ill or having an accident abroad is being taken care of whilst there and getting back home afterwards, in other words repatriation. Without adequate cover this could be extremely costly with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommending that the level of cover should be £1 million for Europe and £2 million for the rest of the world. That puts it into perspective.

A good policy should give you assistance 24-7 and if your holiday is suddenly cancelled a full refund should be offered. If you are on the accident prone side then personal liability will be important incase you accidentally injury someone else or their property.

If you intend to take part in some adrenalin fuelled sports whilst on holiday then you will need to make sure your holiday insurance can cover that. Although you are probably not travelling with all of your worldly goods, but it is worth making sure that the limit for stolen, lost or damaged possessions is enough to cover your valuables.
