Holidaymakers planning a trip abroad this Easter should check their travel insurance offers them the cover they need and not opt for the cheapest policy available.
This is according to MoneySupermarket.com, which said it is important that Brits going on a mini-break are not putting themselves at risk by being stingy on insurance.
Families are able to cover themselves for a fortnight’s holiday for as little as £10, the price comparison website said, but the cheapest deal does not always equal the most reliable one.
Bob Atkinson, travel expert at MoneySupermarket.com, said a good all-round travel policy should be purchased as soon as people book their getaway, rather than it being an afterthought that is purchased in a rush.
“The right policy will offer good levels of cover with low excess fees. Taking a small amount of time to read the small print will ensure that you get a great travel insurance deal to match your needs,” he continued.
Recent research carried out by Which? found travel insurance has the highest claims rejection rate in the sector, with one in ten instances turned down.
