Make sure to include travel insurance in your holiday checklist
What if you need to cancel your trip before the start of your holiday, as a result of an accident or illness? The likelihood is you will lose your holiday deposit and may incur high cancellation charges. It is for this reason that your travel insurance cover effective date should be the day you book your holiday or cruise, rather than the actual start date. It is also prudent to check that the policy provides a sufficient cancellation limit to cover the full cost of your holiday.
What if your luggage or personal belongings are delayed, stolen or lost during transit? The amount an airline is legally required to pay you is unlikely to be anywhere near the value of your missing baggage.
One of the most common travel claims is for emergency medical assistance whilst abroad, where medical costs incurred through injury or illness can be very expensive.
It is worth noting that the cover provided by the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is limited and is not an alternative to travel insurance e.g. it may only provide reduced medical costs when travelling within the “European Economic Area” or Switzerland. The EHIC will not cover repatriation e.g. if you miss your schedule return flight home as a result of a medical difficulty.
