We know that our clients spend a lot of their hard-earned money when arranging their holidays and now, more than ever before, the need for adequate travel insurance cannot be over emphasised.
Travel insurance is there to protect you against a range of possible losses, from cancellation prior to departure to a medical emergency abroad. We have seen it many times where clients planned to purchase travel insurance just prior to leaving the UK but had to cancel their holiday before the departure date: with no insurance in place at the time of cancellation, they remained liable for the full amount. There is no discount for purchasing travel insurance at a later date, the vast majority of travel insurance policies have cancellation cover built in to the policy. This means that when purchasing a policy a few days before departure, you are paying for cancellation cover which you may not benefit from. For complete peace of mind, we suggest that you have full cover in place at the time of booking. It is so important that we actually make this a requirement under our booking conditions. This is to protect the property owner, our business, but most importantly, you.
At the moment it is very unlikely that you will be able to get cover for cancellation of a holiday due the FCDO ‘advising against all but essential travel’ to your holiday destination as this will be excluded for all policies. It is for this reason we have put in place our own ‘Covid-19 Travel with Confidence Guarantee’ which, when combined with your travel insurance, will give you complete peace of mind.
You are, of course, free to choose with whom to take out travel insurance but below we have included a link to specialists Travel & General Insurance Services Limited who are fully authorised and regulated by the FCA (firm reference number 304788) full details of which can be found on the FCA website www.fca.org.uk.
