Staying under the limit

When you are away on your holidays and chilling out by the pool it is very easy to have one too many drinks especially with the hot weather. Keeping an eye on your alcohol consumption is a good way to ensure you don't invalidate your holiday insurance.

Brits abroad don't have the best of reputations when it comes to drinking and that is now being highlighted by insurers who won't pay out if they believe alcohol has been involved in an incident. Any injury sustained whilst under the influence won't receive a pay out.

Skiing is one area where drinking holiday makers need to be careful. Taking to the slopes after having a drink is dodgy especially if you have a bad fall. It will be noted by the medics how much alcohol is in your system, if you need hospital attention and repatriation you could face a very big bill if your insurer refuses to pay.

Drinking sensibly and staying under the UK drink drive limit is a good way of making sure you are looking after your travel insurance policy.
