Why You Need To Buy Travel Insurance

Posted on 29th December 2015 at 11:13am

Travel Insurance – Four Reasons Why Every Holidaymaker Should Buy It.

Travel Insurance from UKACPOne in four people still goes on holiday without buying travel insurance. This figure is shockingly high, and some travel experts believe that travel insurance should be compulsory.

A lot of people like to save as much money as they can when going abroad in the sun, which includes finding cheap flights, better deals on hotels, and cheap airport parking.

However, saving money on travel insurance by not purchasing it should not be one of those cost cutting exercises.

Cautionary Tales

In recent years, there have been many shocking stories in the newspapers about people being faced with tens of thousands of pounds of medical bills after making the mistake of not buying travel insurance.

Some of those people had to sell their homes to pay for the bills while others turned to their parents who were forced to take out a second mortgage. In each case they all said the same, they wished they bought travel insurance.

So, we have decided to look at why it’s important to buy travel insurance and remember, if you are worried about overpaying on travel insurance, then you can always compare prices here (

Holiday Cancellation

Nobody books a holiday thinking they may not be going on it, but it does happen. There are many reasons why a person may have to cancel a holiday. That includes a death in a family, illness, or another event.

Without having the correct insurance in place, all that money that has been paid for a break in the sun will be lost.

Lost Luggage

One of the biggest problems, when a person goes on holiday, is lost luggage. It happens on a daily basis, and if you do not have travel insurance, then you will have to replace the items out of your own pocket.

There are many reasons for lost luggage, which can include the theft of a suitcase.

Stolen Money

Pickpocketing in Spain and other countries is on the increase. More people are being targeted by criminals while on holiday and when this happens it can result in the holidaymaker being left with no money.

By having the correct insurance, that money could be replaced. Take a look at one of our recent blog posts on the rising crime rate in Benidorm.

Medical Cover

Medical cover is one of the most important reasons to take out travel insurance. If for some reason you fall ill on holiday or have an accident, you will require medical treatment.

If you do not have travel insurance or do not have the correct cover, then you may be forced to pay for treatment, which could cost tens of thousands of pounds.

Travel insurance is important and should always be purchased when looking to go on holiday abroad.
