Don’t Forget This Holiday Essential

Matt Crisp July 10, 2020

The government has given the go-ahead for holidays in the UK from 4 July, and many Brits are now eagerly snapping up staycations, weekend breaks, and even the possibility of getting abroad later in the year.

But while travel restrictions have been eased, and there will be no quarantine for those who manage to get abroad, there’s one thing you must not forget before you travel.

Holidays always need careful planning if you want your trip to go smoothly, despite whether you’re flying to far-flung beaches, or a UK staycation a couple of hours away in luxury coach hire from London, and it is important, wherever you plan to go, to make sure you have travel insurance.

A survey from MoneySuperMarket showed that 56 per cent of holidaymakers would never take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy for a UK staycation, but protection is still needed, even if you’re not leaving the country.

Not only could travellers be risking losing money in the event of a delayed or cancelled transport or accommodation, but there is still the possibility of losing baggage or cash or damage to personal possessions.

It’s vital to ensure you have the right protection in place for your holiday, so we want to offer the following tips to consider.

Travel Insurance doesn’t need to cost a fortune. If you’re only planning a short getaway, then look at getting single trip insurance instead of multi-trip or annual policies. Single trip cover starts from as little as £6.50 and will provide you with adequate cover for your holiday.

Always ensure you know your policy and what it covers. The cover can vary by provider and type of insurance. It’s possible some policies, especially annual ones may not cover travel during the coronavirus outbreak, so check with your provider before booking your holiday.

Brits should also make sure they are up to date with the latest government advice and guidance on social distancing and travel advice both within the UK and internationally.

Taking out a comprehensive policy at the time of booking will ensure you are covered against any unexpected cancellations or unexpected changes. Government guidance at the point of travel may be subject to change and this can impact the amount of coverage your policy offers.

While the UK and the world continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic, it’s even more important to make sure you have a minimum level of adequate policy coverage for any trip, especially given that the government advice and guidance could change.

Some policies may not cover changes to circumstances, so always check with your provider at the time of booking, to ensure you have the freedom to plan ahead and enjoy a well earned holiday without any worry.

Why not give up the driving duties for your UK staycation, by making use of luxury minibus hire in Liverpool to transport you and your family in style and comfort to your holiday destination this summer.
