Travel Insurance Dropped During Financial Crisis

Travel Insurance Dropped During Financial Crisis

When we go on holiday we expect to get away from all the stresses of working life but this has become difficult for many with the current financial situation meaning that more and more British holidaymakers are finding that they may have to make compromises this year if they hope to jet away to their favourite holiday destination.

One of these compromises is the smaller side expenses that can be dropped these tend to be smaller expenses like car hire but sometimes it can be a complete change such as going for an all inclusive break instead.

It’s not surprising that people may opt to cut back on their holidays this year as despite all the troubles British tourists are determined to have their week or two in the sun even if it means cutting down on other holidays like city weekend breaks. Rises in the cost of flights has made many holidaymakers much more selective with their choice of holidays also.

This year in particular there have been speculations that many tourists will drop Travel Insurance, 22 percent of British tourists are looking to cut back on their coverage this year in hope of bringing the cost of holidays down. Whilst the majority of holidays go off without a hitch there is always the chance that you will encounter a situation that necessitates travel insurance.

A common occurrence is being hospitalised whilst away, common with skiing holidays the cost of medical services or air ambulances can skyrocket above ?1,000 should you need lifting back down the mountain. But other instances such as flight cancellations and claiming money back for hotel costs in the event that you end up arriving late. Travel Insurance works out to be a cheap expense and can be made even cheaper with a little bit of work.

Firstly there are plenty of travel insurance comparison sites that can help you decide on whom to go with, you can select the country you’re going to and see many different providers at a glance, most importantly it can tell you all their terms and what they will cover. You may find if you are going on an adventure holiday with activities like sky-diving or bungee jumping that the field of insurers willing to cover you may be narrowed considerably. This means that by using these sites you’ll be able to find the providers who are worth going for.

Another consideration for holidaymakers is to think about how often they’re going away and consider maybe opting for annual travel insurance instead. By choosing to cover all your trips at once it spreads the payment and easily pays for itself if you find you’re travelling a lot. You’re able to select this when you compare travel insurance too and can see whether you’ll make a saving with an annual travel insurance policy as opposed to the single trip policy.

So whilst many are looking for ways to save this year, reducing their insurance cover is not the best option as there are plenty of ways in which your holiday could go wrong and you don’t want the added burden of extra financial woes.
