With so many magical places to see in the world, spending time researching, booking and preparing for your dream adventure can take a lot of planning. With everything from how many pairs of socks you’ll need to sorting your foreign currency, there’s plenty to consider. It could also be important to try and cover yourself whilst you’re away by purchasing insurance for your holiday. At The Insurance Emporium, we want you to enjoy your globetrotting adventures, that’s why we’ve put together this guide on why you might need Travel Insurance.
1. Skills to pay the medical bills
Many people’s greatest fear when travelling to a foreign country, where they might not speak English, is falling ill and needing emergency medical care. Although we get free healthcare here in the UK, this won’t be the case when you’re in a foreign country. Having an insurance policy in place could help to pay for some of these expenses.
2. Cancellation cover
As much as you may be looking forward to a trip, sometimes the unforeseen happens and you could have to cancel. Not being able to travel might be upsetting but it could be worse if you’re not covered for cancellation! Many insurances policies will cover unused travel and accommodation costs, that way you can look to travel again in the future!
3. Loss of possessions
Whether you’re the victim of theft or the airline manages to lose your bag, there might be few things worse than being stuck in a foreign country without the majority of your possessions! From your swimming costume to return travel tickets, the last thing that you want is to lose something whilst abroad. Having an insurance policy could help you claim back the cost of items that you’ve lost!
4. Delay dramas
Is there anything as frustrating as that feeling when the airport boards tick over to read ‘delayed’ next to your flight? Sitting in an airport for 12 hours can really put a negative spin on your holiday experience, however having a policy in place could mean that you’re able to claim for delays on your transport. It could help to put a silver lining to those departure lounge blues!
5. Peace of mind
The most important reason behind getting holiday insurance could simply be the peace of mind and freedom that it gives you to enjoy your adventures! Knowing that there is cover in place to protect you if something unexpected happens could make all the difference in enjoying your trip.
There are so many adventures to enjoy and places in the world to explore that could add a little extra magic to your life.
