Holiday and Travel Insurance Advice

 

In this money feature, Karl Walkinshaw of the Money Advice Service talks in more depth about the importance of travel insurance for you, your family and your possessions. He also offers some sound advice on what to look out for when buying travel insurance.

 

Things to consider when taking out travel or holiday insurance:

> Individual or family cover
> Period of insurance cover (single trip or annual cover?)
> Winter sports cover
> Baggage cover
> Where will you be travelling to? Europe/Worldwide?

 

You should also:

> Declare any pre-existing medical conditions
> Check the excess charges
> Shop around and make sure that you are not already covered through your employer, credit card or other policies
> Make sure you understand and have fully checked the policy before you buy, and don't be afraid to ask questions
 
We also mention in the film (at the top of this page) that it is worth visiting the travel insurance page on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website, as there is a wealth of helpful information.
