If you are in the process of booking a holiday, it is vital that you think about your travel insurance. A good travel insurance policy will cover you for a number of things from illness down to having to cancel your holiday.
When choosing who to go with for your travel insurance, it is important to think about what level of cover you need. Should the worse happen and you become ill or have an accident and require medical attention, you may find yourself left with a huge bill going up in to the thousands. If you have travel insurance then you should be covered for this a long as you have filled out your medical history correctly. Some policies will not cover you for existing medical conditions so to be sure, you need to double check this.
When going away make sure you have at least one copy of your travel insurance documents with you and that leave one at home with a friend or family member.
You can use comparison sites to compare travel insurance policies at a glance but be sure to check that it offers the level of cover you require as the cheapest policy is not always the right one for you.
