What could possibly go wrong?...
Unfortunately things can and do go belly up when you're on holiday ...
Lost EHIC, Passport or Money
You could have your passport pinched from under your very nostrils at the airport or be mugged in broad daylight in the street.
When taking money abroad there are some simple tips to remember and strategies to use.
You could take a dizzy spell just as you're locking the front door, conk out on the doorstep and miss the plane. How sad it that?
If you have pre-existing medical conditions you can usually have these included - or excluded - in your holiday insurance, depending on budget and attitude to risk.
With adequate medical cover you can save yourself some hefty bills when getting emergency treatment especially outside Europe.
Medical & Body Repatriation
Your nearest and dearest may need to fly out to be at your death bed if you find yourself in a Meet-Your-Maker situation.
And if your death bed happens to be at the other end of the world - Australia - how will your loved ones afford to get your earthly remains home ...?
Repatriation insurance will pay for your return to your country of origin if you end up chronically sick or worse.
You can cover almost every risk
How? Simply by taking out holiday travel insurance. Insurance companies and brokers cover everyday holiday risks and offer online quotes. Specialist providers cover people of any age and most pre-existing medical conditions.
Anything to declare?
Don't duck relevant questions that could render your policy null and void. We live in a digital world and insurance companies are all knowing. They may even check your Facebook profile and pictures if you claim. And make sure you've got cover for those fun yet hazardous activities.
- Unexpected holiday cancellation
- Loss or theft of money and luggage
- Medical/health emergencies or accidents
- Repatriation to UK for hospital care or return of your body
