Well, it's that time of the year again...time to have a nice getaway in the summer sun! I don't know about you, but when I start preparing for my getaway, I always make a checklist to make sure that I'm not forgetting anything...even though I always end up forgetting something.
So you're packing your suitcase and getting ready for your vacation. You've got all of your clothes, toothbrush, a book...... but do you have travel insurance? If there's one thing that the modern traveler absolutely must have for their journey, it's travel insurance. Exciting it isn't, but essential it most certainly is.
Recent surveys have shown that a worryingly high percentage of people leave home without any travel insurance at all. There are so many things that can go wrong when you travel, especially if that journey involves flights or sea crossings. And the last thing that you need when you are trying to get away from it all, is to have the stress and worry of how you are going to pay the bills when something does go wrong.
Debenhams annual holiday insurance is one such insurance that I have come across recently. Rather than having to pay for insurance every time you travel, this policy will cover you for as many trips as you like. It also includes winter sports cover as standard, and has free coverage for up to 3 kids per insured adult. Annual cover starts from under £30. There are many other benefits to be had too, so go check them out at their website.
Having to pay out huge medical fees, or for emergency transport home are the extremes of what could occur when you're on holiday. However, long flight delays, lost baggage and a mislaid purse are far more common. At least with a good travel insurance policy you will have some peace of mind the next time you head out the door on the way to your vacation paradise!
