So why should you bother with travel insurance?
We all know that life can throw us a curve ball and that the unexpected can happen. The question is, can you live with the consequences, especially when you find yourself far from home? Imagine if you encountered any of the following:
- You’re involved in an accident and need emergency medical attention. Who will pay for it?
- Your scheduled airline is declared bankrupt leaving you short of a flight. How do you get home?
- Your flight is cancelled or delayed due to an unforeseen natural disaster. What happens to your holiday?
- Your wallet is stolen and you have no emergency cash to fall back on. Who can you turn to?
- A close family member falls ill and your trip has to be cancelled. Do you lose all your money?
- Your baggage is lost or delayed in transfer. Who’s going to pay for a new toothbrush and other essentials when you need them most?
According to the latest independent research by Mintel, 9 out of 10 of us consider insurance to be an essential purchase when travelling abroad. The possibility of a crisis, spiralling costs and having to face the situation alone, is not worth the risk for many of us. What do you think?
So what’s your alternative? Well, you could apply for one of our tailor made insurance packages and allow us to shoulder the responsibility instead. Go and enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge that we’ll be there for you if you need us.
