Yet it is cheap and easy to get cover, which could save you thousands of pounds in medical bills should anything go wrong while away.
It also helps protect you against lost luggage and cancelled flights.
Sun Savers brings you top tips for travel insurance.
- Buy as soon as you book. Travel insurance doesn’t just cover you while you are away, it protects you in case you can’t go on holiday. If you have to cancel, you should be covered for the cost of your trip.
- Shop around. It’s not just about price but the level of cover. Insurance can cost as little as £5 for a single person or £10 if you are travelling as a family. Use comparison sites such as Compare The Market, which is currently offering two-for-one meals for a year at thousands of restaurants if you take out travel insurance with it.
- Cheaper with more holidays. If you are going away twice this year and pay for two single-trip policies, it would cost £51.88 with Aviva. But getting annual cover would cost £42.18 from the same provider. Save even more money by using cashback sites. At TopCashback.co.uk you can get £15.75 back on annual travel policies with Aviva, and as much as £20.45 on policies with Virgin Money Travel.
