Airlines are still automatically adding travel insurance when they shouldn’t be

According to new research from Editor of Which? Magazine some of the top UK airlines are adding travel insurance automatically to customers bills when an EU ruling says that this is not allowed.

Purchasing tickets with airline carriers such as easyJet, Jet2 and Monarch could see your ticket price increase due to them adding the cost of travel insurance to your ticket. Average costs for holiday insurance is between £7 and £10.

However, there is some good news as airline carriers like British Airways and Ryanair, do meet consumer watchdog Which? Standards.

You should not have to pay for something that you don’t want or already have, so be very careful and make sure you read the small print and what features you have just bought when buying a flight online.
