Expert offers consumer’s travel insurance guide
A leading financial expert has published a unique consumer’s guide to travel insurance, helping holidaymakers get the very best cover they need for their forthcoming trip.
Published on the Money Supermarket website, an independent financial expert, the informative guide lays out a variety of aspects which you should consider when purchasing your travel insurance, ensuring you are covered for almost every incident that could arise.
While the guide states that many people underestimate the importance of single trip travel insurance policies, the fact that it covers so many facets of your holiday means that it’s a small price to pay for complete peace of mind.
One aspect that it does highlight is to check the small print of claims; while some policies may be considerably cheaper than others, there is a chance that things such as personal liability, or even the amount of cover it offers has been reduced to reflect the low cost.
When shopping for your quote, always ensure that it gives suitable cover against personal liability, baggage, delay, emergency aid and medical cover. In reference to baggage, it states that a policy should offer guaranteed cover of £1,500 if it has been stolen or damaged – something you should be checking in the small print before taking out the cover.
Another huge aspect to consider is the level of medical cover which a policy offers, with expert opinion stating that you should have at least £2million if you are travelling abroad. This should also include repatriation, the arranging of a flight back to the UK to allow for access to appropriate medical care.
