Follow these top tips for finding the best travel insurance policy for your specific needs.
The summer is here and itís time to finally think about your summer getaway. Whether you are heading far and away to an exotic destination like Bangkok or Sydney, or staying a little closer to home and holidaying in Spain or the Greek Islands, one thing remains the same: the need for comprehensive travel insurance that covers you and your family.
There are a number of things to think about when looking for the right level of travel insurance. The obvious things to think about include how much cover you need: do you just want emergency medical cover or do you want insurance for lost luggage and delayed flights, too?
Other things to think about include where you are actually going ñ do you need European cover, or are you travelling further afield? Also something worth bearing in mind is how many people you are looking to cover, too.
Single Trip Travel Insurance
Single trip travel insurance within Europe is increasingly affordable. Anyone over the age of 21 travelling to a European destination for 10 days, for example, can find affordable travel insurance for less than £10. Travel-insurance-web.com offers insurance for just £8.16. This includes up to £10,000,000 of medical cover and up to £5,000 for cancellation and £2,500 for baggage.
Family Travel Insurance Deals
For a typical family of 4 travelling to a resort in Europe this August for a fortnight, affordable travel insurance is available, too. For example, Protect Your Bubble offer single trip cover for August at just £22.20 for a family of four to Europe. This includes up to £7.5 million of medical cover, £2,000 for cancellation, £1,500 for baggage, too.
As with all financial products it is advisable to compare prices before you buy online. When comparing travel insurance online always remember to disclose any information that your insurer may need to provide you with a suitable quote.
Failing to disclose any information, such as previous medical conditions, could invalidate your cover and leave you without any travel insurance at all.
