Is it a legal requirement to have travel insurance?
Although it’s not a legal requirement to have travel insurance, it’s a good idea to take out cover when you go on holiday or a business trip. Travel insurance gives you financial protection in case something goes wrong while you are away or your trip is canceled or cut short. It can cover you if you suffer an illness or injury while you’re away, or if you are a victim of crime.
Everybody loves to get away from their usual routine – whether it’s relaxing on the beach, a city break or a skiing trip. Often you let your guard down when you’re on holiday which can lead to loss or theft of your personal belongings. If you’re an adrenaline junkie and plan on taking part in extreme sporting activities while you’re away, it’s practically important to take out insurance.
Your travel insurance policy can pay out a lump sum up to a set amount to cover costs like medical expenses, theft and the cost of getting home if you have to stay longer than planned due to medical treatment. As medical expenses in foreign countries can end up costing tens of thousands of pounds without the trusty NHS, it pays to have the protection in place.
So, whether you’re taking the family on your annual holiday, a student setting off for an around the world trip or someone simply making the most of your retirement, travel insurance is an essential item to add to your checklist.
