Egyptian floods

When you go to Egypt on holiday you expect to be dehydrated, not have the worst flash floods that the country has seen since biblical times.

Homes have been swept away and resorts have been marooned leaving holiday makers stranded. Roads have been damaged, telephone lines pulled down as well as power lines and the authorities have had to close the country's borders.

No one expected such furious floods and holiday makers are now trying to get home following this natural disaster. The unexpected twists and turns that nature throws at you is exactly why you should have insurance in place.

Alternative accommodation, cancelled flights, and transfers will soon add up if you haven't taken out adequate travel insurance. Flash floods are different to lost luggage but at least if you are insured you have peace of mind knowing that you will get something back out of a bad experience.

Worst case scenario is getting injured on holiday and not having appropriate cover. Even calling an ambulance abroad costs you and repatriation can cost thousands. So the moral of the story is make sure you take out travel insurance which is appropriate to your trip.
