The normal criteria is that this must be a pre-booked
holiday in the UK encompassing at least two nights.
Do I need Insurance?
Although in the UK, health care is provided 'free' at the
point of service, other than medical prescriptions - and thus the reduced
premium reflects this, and the cost of cancellation will probably be lower
as there are unlikely to be air fares involved, there are potential losses
for travelers in the UK that could be insured.
Baggage and Personal effects - these could be stolen
from a train, from your hotel etc. Please note we recommend that you
extend your house insurance policy to cover unspecified all-risks
cover, as you will then get new-for-old replacement rather than
indemnity cover - which will involve a deduction for wear and tear.
Cancellation - you may still have to cancel a trip at
short notice due to ill health etc and thus pay the hotel costs
Other benefits are normally of minimal value
Medical, travel insurance
For most the largest claim will be: medical. Travel insurance,
despite there being more claims for luggage or baggage, pays out more in medical claims. The
policy limits are usually adequate: £5,000,000 is more than the largest claim made. Some
people, as a result, just want medical travel insurance - no extra frills. For these we offer
discounts of up to 50% on our rates.
If you need help on your travel insurance needs then please
call our Consett office on 01207 509446 or, if you get no reply, our Gateshead office on
01207 509446. Of course we would be only too pleased to
discuss the cover provided and help you decide if this is the correct
cover you need.
