Don’t leave it until later! Get Travel Insurance as soon as you book any part of a holiday.
Travel Insurance is vital.
Booking your travel insurance at the same time as you book your holiday will cover you for your cancellation of your holiday from the moment you start your policy. This will give you peace of mind as well.
People often leave it until they are about to go, something unexpected happens, and they have no travel insurance cover, so cannot claim anything back.
If you are reading this, please ensure you and other members of your party have taken out Travel Insurance for your holiday.
We recently reminded clients to ensure they have taken out Travel Insurance as soon as they have booked any part of their holiday. My client Mr C, who I know has pre-existing medical conditions and is 81 years old, called me to confirm that he had almost given up getting affordable travel insurance (quotes between £2000 & £4000). He followed the tips below and called to advise me that he got an Annual Insurance for £205 with Insure and Go. Mr C. told me that Insure and Go phoned him to ensure the medical history was accurate. The couple can now enjoy his almost 50th trip to Paphos, Cyprus without worry.
